Today started out with the worst weather. Almost as soon as I left Laramie it started snowing and I drove through snow for about four hours (with a few stops). It was incredibly stressful, especially in the mountains when the snow was really heavy and I could hardly see. I don’t recommend starting out your day with stress like that. I totally need a massage right now.
But eventually I got passed the snow and things started to look up. I stopped at the end of Wyoming and took a walk in the sunshine by a river and small lake.
Pretty, right? Randomly stopping along the highway when you see a sign that says “river walk” is such a good idea. I need some fresh air and a little exercise.
Then I got to Utah and I was amazed by everything I saw. For some reason I never thought Utah was very exciting. And because the southern part is flat I somehow thought it was all flat. It’s not. It’s really cool. I LOVE the mountains and so wish I could go snowboarding!
(insert photo of awesome mountains I took with my other camera which is not uploaded… oops)
Then I found out that Shannon lives out in the middle of nowhere Utah, on a really beautiful farm. Seriously, it’s beautiful. At first I was wondering if we would ever stop driving to get to her house, but in the end it’s completely worth it. This is the view on the walk around her property.
And her family is awesome.
Exhibit A: one of the kids, who is famous via his love for YumYucky. He is hilarious and the whole family is really cool.
Exhibit B: they have a ton of animals. My favorite are the pot bellied pigs. I LOVE them.
Can I please live on a farm and have lots of animals too?
I really am enjoying it here and I’m glad I’m spending another day here! I’m going to workout and meet some people and see what kind of fun I can find. If I’m not too tired tomorrow I’ll even tell you about some of it.
But for now I’m so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open.
