Well, we hit the road this morning, after we went to our #Pasadena830 Weight Watchers meeting (both of us had good weeks despite multiple celebrations), said “Adios” to all of our buddies, and received a summer charm from one of our friends. Then we headed home to our packed car (Thanks to my darling son, Matt). We had wanted to be out by 10 and we actually left before 11. So for us, we were on time!
First stop was Corky’s in Rancho Cucamonga for a hearty brunch. Then on to I15 and a drive through the desert. We stopped in Baker for drinks and gas, passed the solar generating station near State Line and drove straight through Las Vegas. We made it to St. George, Utah by 7:15 local time. Good first day on the road.
Tomorrow takes us into Montrose, Colorado and a visit with our nephew Casey, his wife Sarah and their two tiny Flanagans.
Someone ask if we were going to Zion and Bryce, but we are not this trip. We have spent time at both parks on multiple trips so we will save those for another time.
