Day Two!

Day Two began at Motel 6 in Salt Lake City and is ending at the Motel 6 in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Tomorrow we head North to Cody!

Wyoming. Forever West. I forgot how vast the land is up here - it just goes on forever.

We started our day driving 110 miles WEST of Salt Lake City (read - out of the way or backtracking) to see the Bonneville Salt Flats, where so many of the land speed records have been made. Unfortunately for Jason, who had dreams of speed, the weather has not been cooperative, and the salt flats were more like The Great Salt Lake, Jr. Still, it was beautiful. And cold.

After driving the 110 miles BACK to Salt Lake City, we ate a huge lunch at Pat's BBQ - famous for its food and appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The food was AWESOME.

We saw this place just after we entered Wyoming. Liquor + Fireworks = always a good combination. You know what else was a good combo? Our visits to Boot Barn and Wal-Mart - it's cultural immersion!

Will write again tomorrow from CODY!!!!!!
