On The Road: Day 6 (and a little of Day 7)

We got on the road around five in the morning with a stop at Starbucks first. I took the wheel for half the day- we made it to Wyoming (super blowy snowy and windy) and just before getting to Utah we took a break at Little America while we waited for I-80W to open up after a crash. As soon as we finished lunch the road was clear and we were on our way.

This is somewhere near Echo Valley in Utah- Carter wanted it to look like he was touching a mountain or holding it or something. We need to work on that style of photography.


We had planned to stop in Twin Falls for the night but we were making such good time we drove on to Boise. We're getting ready to leave this morning and most of our day's drive will be ALL Oregon. I should be seeing my new house late this afternoon!

As of right now the kids and I have driven a total of 2,060 miles since leaving our home in Northeast Ohio (not including all the driving through the mountains sight-seeing on Tuesday). Our path has been: Ohio - Indiana - Illinois - Iowa - Nebraska - Colorado - Wyoming - Utah - Idaho and in about an hour or so... Oregon!
