I could write a book about our recent road trip. Having a July anniversary has given us an excuse for some fantastic summer vacations. This wasn't an Alaskan cruise, but it was still a fantastic way to mark the 5 year anniversary of our (real) wedding (also the 8 year anniversary of our first date.)
We left on Friday afternoon and made it all the way from California, through Nevada, a snippet of Arizona and into Richfield Utah that night. We had a less than mediocre anniversary dinner at an Applebee's in some random little town in Utah around 9 pm. Oddly enough, it's not the first time we've had a less than mediocre anniversary dinner at Applebee's in some random little town off a highway around 9 pm.
After day 1, things improved dramatically and we found ourselves here:
(Spotted Wolf Canyon, Utah)
And then finally, here–my sister in law's ranch house near Fort Collins, CO:
This guy's name is Phil. He cracke me up. If 80s hair bands were comprised of chickens, Phil would have found his calling for sure.
I love it there because I get to dote on the horses… it's all my little girl fantasises come true!
We left Fort Collins a few days later and headed through Wyoming and into Hill City South Dakota.
We saw the Crazy Horse Monument
We rode the "1880s Train" (pretty self explanatory)
Saw a gazillion deer everywhere we went
Had a few drinks…
Visited Sturgis just a few days shy of Bike Week (I didn't feel out of place AT ALL)
And finally, hit the road again toward home, stopping along the way in…
For a night of camping here:
I'd say we have a knack for taking some pretty fantastic trips.
