Day 19 - August 23, 2006
We left shortly after six to make it to Wyoming. The kids were still in bed. Saw a FL license plate. We were on the road all day. And then part of the night. Today, our name for the trip seems even more appropriate than when we chose it ( Drive Again. Tomorrow. FOREVER!) We are beginning to go a little crazy (and a little more tired). We have finally been able to train the kids to say: “We love it!”, whenever we pass something or go somewhere. Of course they don’t mean it. But it doesn’t matter. They barely grunted when we passed the Great Salt Lake and waved at it.
Even so, the scenery has been good. Most of Utah is called mountain desert. Drought is a continuing problem in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada. Lake Mead (created by Hoover Dam) was down approximately 40 feet. Because the Utah countryside has a semi-tropical summer, cotton can be and is grown. And like all of the mountain desert areas there is juniper, pinyon pine, and miles of scrub brush. Surprisingly, there are a lot of wildflowers too. Interesting names from Idaho and Utah: Thanksgiving
Point, Browse, Ranch Exit, Mona, and Panguitch (again).
We reached Jackson Hole, WY around 9:30 pm. A security guard in a golf cart showed us to our space (lucky 13).
