Initially, Michael and I had planned to make the journey to Zion National Park, but since Michael has not been feeling up to par, we decided to just drive through the state of Utah and enjoy the scenery along the way. Fortunately for us we saw so many cool rock formations, and we felt as though it would be quite similar to driving through a national park.
We went through Utah, and did our cache in Mexican Hat, which is a small town. The red sand and rock formations were really cool-looking. Along the way we just had to pull over to take some pictures. At the same time, I wanted to get to our hotel as soon as possible so Michael could get some much-needed rest. We both wanted him to recover quickly so we could make it through to the next few states.
Throughout these past few months, we have met many challenges, but they all definitely come with great rewards. We have the opportunity to take the time to travel across the country and meet our goal of hitting all 50 states! It’s so interesting to go through these states and see the different cultures, terrain, foods, and people that encompass and make up this beautiful country.
Fall foliage must be painting the New England area, but in Utah, we have been able to see such natural beauty that we would never have been able to see in the Northeast region. The next stop on our list is the colorful state of Colorado, where we will be recuperating.
