Excuse me while I manually unclench my butt cheeks... Ok, that's better. Today we drove through Wyoming, Utah & Nevadon't-ever-drive-through-this-state-unless-you're-hauling-a-load-or-insane. In between long stretches of pure boredom and I-swear-we're-gonna-fly-off-this-cliff-and-die stretches through the mountains in Utah and Nevada I was able to admire so many sights that I either didn't know existed or never thought I would see.
|They reminded me of the train set I used to play with growing up|
Park City, Utah
I don't have a good picture of this, I was too busy clenching my jaw while holding tightly on to Archibald so he wouldn't jump and distract Mick.
The Salt Flats
|The salt flats went on for 20 or 30 minutes. Other travelers seemed to like to drive around in them or write messages with rocks out there.|
|Mick insisted we get out and take a picture|
|I don't know its real name, but it's a mountain that, in the dusk light, looked like a giant wave about to crash over the field|
|Next time, I'll skip Reno. Not much to see here. Ha, who am I kidding, I will never do this again. No Way.|
To say we were relieved to finally find ourselves in Reno is an understatement. To celebrate, we walked over to the casinos to hang out/look around/possibly gamble. The ATM cost $10 so gambling was out. A casino is a casino, even in Reno, so looking around got boring quick. Instead, we stopped in the only restaurant we could find open and had a chicken quesadilla and a beer and then went back to our motel for some much needed rest.
Day 3 and move-in to come!
|Archy enjoyed himself|
|My mom hid these cute little cards in the sandwiches she made us for the drive. I miss you too, mom! *sniffle*|
