28th trip – days 140-142, Sept 17-19, 2021 Fremont Indian State Park, UT
I finally was able to get some answers this week. As you have read, I had been experiencing horrible headaches, ear pain, dizziness, and vertigo. The Neurologist looked at the MRI and said my brain looks great. (Some may argue with that! HAHA) There are two things going on at the same time. 1. The ear and headache pain is caused from the ear nerve. I have had this pain for several years, about once a week or so, since starting to lose my hearing. But it had gotten so bad it was at times debilitating. I was put on some medicine for nerve pain. It takes a few weeks to fully start helping. As you will see in next week’s post, I was feeling incredibly better and was able to write in my travel journal again. 2. The vertigo was caused by the crystals in the ear being out of place. I was sent to a great Hearing and Balance hospital. He said the crystals in my ears were really out of whack, more than he usually sees, but was able to help with a few treatments. I am so thankful for the medical professionals and modern medicine. He and my neurologist both said it was just bad timing that both those issues occurred at the same time. So, for this camping trip, I still wasn’t feeling well but what amazing sights we saw.
“Discover artifacts, petroglyphs, and pictographs left behind by the Fremont Indians. During the construction of Interstate 70, the largest known Fremont Indian village was uncovered. This museum preserves treasures from the site, including pottery, baskets, and arrowheads.” This is from the Fremont Indian State Park website describing what the park is about.

Driving around and looking at the beauty just never gets old to us.
Amazing view of mountains, moon, clouds, planet, and stars.
This is the foundation of a house used by a BLM (Bureau of Land Management) worker and his family.
This cave was used by the BLM worker and family to keep things cold. It is bigger inside than the foundation of the house!
Beauty in the little things. A flower growing up through sage brush.
We made a great discovery! HAHA. We like Funyuns with Cinnamon Bears. 🙂 Try it, you might like it.
