Idaho to Utah

Beautiful weather today! We left Boise around 9 a.m. and cruised across the wide-open expanses of southern Idaho. We remembered seeing more animals when we were in this area two years ago with the car, but this time all we saw were huge herds of dairy cows. We crossed the border into Utah at 2:15 p.m. and stopped for fuel at the Flying J in Ogden. Unfortunately that put us creeping through Salt Lake City at the beginning of their rush hour. Pretty slow going sometimes - especially where two on-ramps of two lanes each in about 50 yards merging onto a three-lane freeway with no metering stop lights...

We were hoping to get as far as Price, UT tonight, but a phone call from Eric reminding us of a high deer crossing area before that, plus the SLC delays, helped convince us to stop earlier. At 6:30 we checked out the Cracker Barrel parking lot near Springville, but it didn't look very large-rig friendly so we went across the freeway to the Wal-mart. We picked up chicken, shrimp and salads inside for dinner in the rig.

Just before retiring at 9:00 p.m. we took a little walk to scout out coffee possibilities in the morning and then picked up some trash and put some carts away in the Wal-mart parking lot. Just our way of saying thanks for letting us stay for free! This was our sunset view from our first "stay" at a Wal-mart. Not bad, huh?
