The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

The Salt Flats

Bonneville, Utah

Imagine what went through the minds of the emigrants when faced with this.

There is shade when you pull off for the view.  You'll need it in the summer months.

Your cell phone may not work out here, so there is old faithful.

We will be home this weekend but the journey is not over.  There is much more to show and tell.
Thank you for riding along with us through the Southern States.


  1. Its been my pleasure tagging along with you and Sinbad. I am a person who doesn't get to travel much anymore, so I enjoy your take on places I have been.
