GALES OF NOVEMBER

Dawn came late and breakfast had to wait. And the heater conked out around 1am, but we crossed Cabbage Hill --in convoy with an Alpaca farmer--and safely ended up at a Flying J's for breakfast and diner coffee. 

We drove through Idaho and into Utah with some icy roads and a snow flurries, but as we crossed Rattlesnake Pass in northern Utah, it snowed so hard we could barely navigate. I have never been so happy to see a snow plow!

Upon reaching Salt Lake City the skies were clear, the roads were dry and the stars were out. And with an 80mph speed limit, we made up some time. 

And now we're parked in Nephi, Utah for the night --with a glass of wine and about 650 miles under our belt for today.
