At one dollar shop.
It rained afternoon.
I was so cold. I stopped at some place to hide from rain. I supposed to go Zion but it rained and was cold. So I set up my tent at somebody yard. It was hard to sleep because of cold.

Few days ago, it was so hot. It’s totally opposite.
It was cold but beautiful.
I stopped at used book store and buy some book!
I met her on the road. She had a friend who gave a ride. So she didn’t have any stuff not like me. I thought that’s good idea.
I wish I could travel with cat.
Finally close to Zion park.
Mike who was my host in Las Vegas gave me annual pass. So I didn’t pay anything for entrance. I promised I will give it back after traveling.
I walked around Zion. It was good.
I asked some camping car and they let me set up my tent. It was for dinner. Maybe someday I will cook well…..

Again cold night. It was hard to sleep at outside. I didn’t have any winter gear. They who let me set up my tent at their campground invited for breakfast. Nice people!
Before&After or After&Before
When I was in Pacific coast, there were always up&down. But uphill was too long at that time.
I couldn’t go through tunnel. So employed stopped some car for me and employed asked a ride for me. So it was not hitchhiking. But I got a riding. Strange experience.
I walked on a trail. When I went to the top, I could see my route. Yeah. I was there with bike!!
On the top
After zion, it was still up hill.
I wanted to go to Bryce Canyon. But it got dark. So I stopped and asked somebody. Again one night at somebody garage. They gave me a hitter. So Not terribly cold not like the day before

Next day I gave some picture which I took as gift. Also She gave me a breakfast and apple which she grow.
I made over 2,000km at that time!!!
Again uphill. Speed was so slow. I got a flat tire on the road.
No downhill. Just uphill. But it was beautiful.
When I ate apple which I got in the morning on a bike, somebody gave me a banana. She said “You need more protein”. So many good people on the road.
Another hitchhiker on the road.
Again I couldn’t go to Bryce Canyon because of uphill. I asked somebody and she let me set up my tent at her yard.

It was terribly cold ever ever ever. I couldn’t sleep well. I lived Yellowknife where is North. There is around -30C in the winter. But I found that if i don’t have winter gear, that experience doesn’t help me. I heard that night was -5c(20f)!!!!
cute dog looked trying saying to me “good morning”
Water was frozen. I slept without any winter gear! Terrible night.
I didn’t have plan to come Utah. But my plan was changed after talking with local people. It was really good choice!!
Finally I arrived in Bryce Canyon. I was so hungry. So I bought some pizza and bread. It was surprised when I bought bread. Bread was 4.75$!!!!!!!!!!. If I go walmart, I could buy one dollar for a bread. Shocking!!!!!! oh…
It was totally impressing. The best choice to come Utah!!!
I met him at visitor center. He was traveling around the world. He let met set up my tent at his campground. Now he is in Asia!!! :)
