Leo has never left Cascadia so waking up in Ogden, Utah was a special treat (even if I still had not gotten enough sleep.) It was a gorgeous day and colored in the sixteenth state on Wilhelm, Brychwyn and Huxley's "States I've Visited" shirts.
After all the fun with Petal and some technical (broken laptop charger) difficulties, we left Ogden late. It was totally per par for this trip. No stress. Just late. Fortunately, I got to enjoy the beautiful stretch of road between Ogden and Moab in the daylight. And we arrived in Moab with enough time to get the tent up before it got dark. The view of the La Sal Mountains and the red rocks from our campsite are stunning. I can tell we have a lot more Utah enjoyment ahead of us.
