The Trip to Bountiful

Actually, it was a trip to Layton, Utah,
but we drove right through Bountiful to get there.

This was our view for most of the trip north

from Las Vegas to the Salt Lake City area.

We stopped in Mesquite, Nevada. Gas was $3.79 a gallon!

This drake and his lady friend greeted us.

She was a little camera shy.

The next three photos are of the Virgin River Gorge.
Very pretty and very rugged.

Payson, Utah has the cutest Starbucks I've ever seen.

The site of the test was beautiful.

The elevation in Layton is 4356 feet.

The elevation in Henderson is 1881 feet.

I'll give you a second to do the math.

Yes, that's right. It's 2475 feet higher in elevation.

That only matters if you're physically exerting yourself.

I was.

A lot.

So were half of these people.

Some of them live there.

I think they had an advantage.

I managed to get through it.

My instructor was proud.

So was I.

The view on the ride home was the same...but foggy.

This sign was sitting next to rocks...and nothing else. Hmmm.....

They were giving away restrooms, but we couldn't fit it in the truck.
