When I thought it couldn't get any better, it did! Monday we drove from Grand Junction, Colorado, to the end of I-70 and on down I-15 to Cedar City. I was totally speechless as we went on and on through the rock formations, mountains, buttes, valleys, etc., created by millions of years of water running through and over the land. I was so awestruck first by the creations and second by our ability to drive through it on a great interstate highway and take in all the beauty. The mountains and buttes looked like castles carved out of the rock. At times I thought I must be in the middle of some giant movie set. Then I found myself asking why it has taken 64 years of my life to get here and see this. I'll never forget it nor ever get over it. There are no pictures to begin to do justice to what we saw yesterday. It was difficult to photograph while riding and it was more difficult to photograph when I just wanted to drink in every second with my own eyes.
I found myself thinking surely there is no place in the entire world more beautiful and more awesome than these United States! I've traveled to a lot of other countries and some of you reading this have been to many more than I, but I just couldn't be happier than I am right now! This has been the trip of a lifetime. Someday Came!!!
