The Long and Winding Road…

Day 29 Road Trip- June 17, 2008

Ok- so it’s not really “winding”- actually it’s fairly straight and you can see for miles…. and miles…. and miles…. If you look hard enough, you can see Colorado! Wow- our day sure started out hot in SLC. But as we went up Parley’s things cooled down a bit, and stayed quite nice until we were nearly in Vernal, UT. Then it got hot again… We had a great ride, nearly the complete day was spent on US Highway 40. It’s quite a scenic ride!

Day 29 Road Trip- June 17, 2008

The skies over Colorado started looking pretty obnoxious. We managed to only get a little sprinkling of rain. We are now in Steamboat Springs, Co, and in the morning will head on to Kansas. (ugh… Kansas!)

Day 26 Road Trip- June 14, 2008This picture is lousy…. The sign kind of snuck up on me- and I didn’t have time to focus (Obviously!)

Day 26 Road Trip- June 14, 2008Our weather was wonderful again today- clear blue skies the whole way…

26-044…Although, when we got stuck in stop and go traffic on I-15 between Ogden and Salt Lake City, things warmed up a bit more than we would have liked. The temperatures in the city sure are higher than out in the middle of nowhere.

Day 26 Road Trip- June 14, 2008Ah, the skyline of Salt Lake City with the beautiful Wasatch mountains in the background. I lived here in Salt Lake for 10 years- just recently moving to South Carolina with Jan. When we saw downtown, Jan asked how it felt to be back in SLC- and to be honest, it doesn’t feel like much of anything- just another stop on the road. Don’t get me wrong- I’m happy to see my friends. But SLC no longer has any meaning to me!
