Recapture Lodge was full of interesting folks, mostly there to hike, see new petroglyphs, visit indian site and tour the area. I had a very interesting breakfast every morning in the map room. If I hadn't had my own agenda I would have begged my way into one of the groups going out.
I ate dinner at the Comb Ridge Bistro. The menu was a little too vegan-ey for me, but I thought I would try the meatloaf. Every once in a while you have an experience that makes you suspicious that you have died and gone to heaven without noticing. The meatloaf was that experience. It was transformational. As I ate, I kept thinking, nothing can be THIS good. But it was. I tipped the cook 20 bucks. If you are in Bluff, Utah and find yourself at the Comb Ridge Bistro and expresso bar, try the meatloaf.
After dinner I walked out behind the lodge to the river to visit the Ellen Meloy memorial there. Her books are a treasure. Jim who owned the lodge was a good friend of Ellen and her husband.
Memorial sculpture based on one of her drawings of a petroglyph of a Stone Sheep in "Eating Stone." I offered up the appropriate prayer.
