Well, I'm on my way back East. I can't stand to take exactly the same route twice, so this time it's mostly I-80. Today, however, was mostly I-15. I am planning to make this trip in 4 days (a record for me), so I only allowed myself about a 3 hour deviation from Google Maps' claim of the shortest route. Today this took me to the Microtel Salt Lake City. Microtel has won all sort of awards in the budget category, so I thought I'd give them a try. The room seems nice. Teddy's zonked out on the floor.
Other observations (with accompanying cell phone camera pictures)...
- Utah has a proper welcome center, unlike California and Nevada
- Every time I see Vegas, they've built something new. This time it's "THEHotel".
- Without rain, Southern California really misses out on rainbows. I had forgotten how much I missed them.
