We drove from Canyonlands to Cortez in the strangest weather any of us had ever seen. A cold, damp wind was blowing and it seemed like it was trying to snow or rain or something, but just couldn't work up enough strength to do it. The fields on either side of the road were all recently plowed, exposing the red dirt, and the wind picked up all the red dust and made pink fog. No kidding!
Dad said it felt like we were driving on Mars. Later, we heard that the towns west of Cortez got pink snow overnight!
