When one of us is driving, the other is taking pictures. (Actually, sometimes the driver also just points out the window and clicks, without really looking… because ya just never know what amazing thing the camera will capture!)
We got in late to Salt Lake City on 9/9. Basically, we blogged and slept, and left early on the 10th for Reno, where we’d be visiting my friends Darlynne and Paul. On the way there, we saw a lot of SALT:
The first picture shows the Morton Salt girl, but it’s hard to see. (You can click any picture, and it’ll get bigger so you can see better). The other two: mountains of salt! Think about that next time you use your little salt shaker! 🙂
The landscape from SLC and along Nevada reminded me of the moon… not that I’ve ever been on the moon, of course, but it’s what I’d imagine it to be. It looked like white quicksand, but there were tire tracks along the perimeter, so that was really interesting:
And there was a Train to Nowhere… at least that’s what it looked like to me. We saw a few of these, trains in the middle of nowhere, not necessarily moving, either. Like ghost trains, perhaps?
We stopped for gas shortly thereafter… no doubt we were in Nevada now!
Once we reached Reno, Darlynne and Paul showered us with kindness, food, hospitality, and comfort. Everywhere we go we’ve been the recipients of kindness, friendship and care. But, practicing brevity: more on that in another post! 🙂
