Postcard: Vernal, Utah

It doesn’t take long to realize Vernal, Utah, is different from other mountain biking destinations. All you have to do is walk into the smoothie shop on Main Street (it’s called “I ❤️ Drilling”) and check out the price list above the counter. You order your smoothie, the gal makes it, then when you go to pay, she asks, “Are you a conservative or liberal?” Your answer determines how much your smoothie costs. They also sell T-shirts that say, “Yes, liberals pay more here!”
