|Welcome to state #11|
|I-80 east, about 15 miles into the flats|
|Looking east, mountains and clouds mirrored in the water|
|Looking west, a lot like looking east|
I stopped for lunch east of Salt Lake City...I'm not sure I've ever been on an interstate through a major city that was as unique as I-80 through SLC. I wanted to eat lunch in Salt Lake City...but traveling along I-80 there were no signs indicating what restaurants or gas stations might be available at any given exit, and, the way the highway is constructed, you really can't "see" what's going on in town. So I just kept going. I was 225 miles into my day and didn't feel like exploring. The Park City exit was a little more inviting. The only downside was it was about 2:00PM and everybody who was heading home after their Labor Day weekend festivities was stopping for gas and a bite to eat.
Once you get to SLC, you also leave the "flat" desert behind. Things get rocky, and there's a touch of green, too. It stays that way right into Wyoming.
|Northeast Utah, it gets kinda pretty up here|

|Just a different perspective...I wasn't tall enough to eliminate the fence|
Tomorrow is another day and another road. :)
