We have been driving for three days now through desert terrain, 3 digit temperatures and slow climbing mountains. Today’s heat was unbearable but we did get through it thanks to a storm that brought us cooling winds and rain. We drove 250 miles today before pulling over at a campground in Spanish Fork, Utah. Even in the desert you can see things that you will not forget, like the Sevier lake that was dry, but you could see exactly were it had been by the salt deposit left on the ground. A cool sight. An early morning rainbow just before daybreak in the distant sky, was a sight we had never seen before and will probable never see again.
Tomorrow we head for the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, with the desert behind us. I can say this has been such a wild and crazy ride, we just look forward everyday to see what adventure we are in for next, but at the end of the day we always say it was a good one.
As of tonight we have driven 9,499.
