The road followed the Ogden River and past old home sites and working ranches with high mountains as a lovely backdrop. I stopped in the town of Huntsville. I checked out the library, the one bar (the shooting star), and took a quick dip in the giant lake.
After warming up I drove till the road turned to dirt and then ended at an awesome reservoir. I found a hidden spot to jump off a high rock and skinny dip for a few minutes. I lasted seconds, melted snow water is not friendly to jump in. I ended up spooning a large black boulder to warm up. I should have dressed first because before I could even stop shivering I heard a horn honk, someone shout "what part of Florida you from", then young girls giggling. I swear, I always know what I'm doing but I never really think about what I'm about to do.

I decided to walk around the lake and shoot some photos.

SHADE. In the west it can be a scorching 100 degrees but you walk into the shade and it feels like its 60. Kind of like when you first walk in the door at Publix. I mean people wear fleece jackets in the shade in the west when its very hot in the sun.
In the South there is absolutely no temperature difference between the sun and the shade. Shade is just a place where you can give your eye muscles a break from squinting and maybe clean the sweat off your sunglasses.
