Where I stayed
I took my car in for service in the morning. Fortunately, the Toyota dealer in Salt Lake City has express service lanes so no reservation was required. They also wash your car as part of the service. I had it washed after leaving Burning Man but it was still pretty dirty when they got done so it was nice to have it washed again.
I drove to Kemmerer, WY. I was here previously on this trip. I had originally intended to visit Fossil Butte National Monument at this point in the trip but I was able to squeeze it in when I was here before so this time I'll be able to try digging for fossils. I got a room at the same hotel I stayed in before.
I planned everything I could before leaving home but that didn't include detailed plans for visiting Voyageurs and Isle Royale National Parks since the ferry and tour boat schedules weren't available yet. I checked the schedules yesterday and found out that what I planned to do wasn't possible with the reduced boat schedules in September. I called a ranger at Isle Royale today to discuss some alternatives. After thinking it over I decided that my options are too limited and it will be better to visit Voyageurs and Isle Royale some other time during the main tourist season when all the ferries are running. Now I have to figure out my schedule from now until some reservations I have in about two weeks.
