Well, it’s that time of year again for me to head out to see what I can find and add states and experiences to my “I did that list”…also known as vacation. This year I went West!! I’ve been to California and Washington state, but none of the in-between states. I saw pictures of Utah and the National Parks…and it became my destination pick for this year.
My travel partner in crime this year is Kirsten, Peyton went to Ireland so was nixed from the party list (we would have rather of went with her); and Simeon wasn’t ready to be away from home for a week – Kirsten is questioning the time frame.
Day one was spent traveling…or I should say sitting in an airport. We arrived to STL on time parked our car, made it through security without a hitch and even boarded the plane….to find out our pilot decided not to come to work and failed to let anyone know. Therefore we got to unload from the plane, was given $25 for dinner, and told it would be 8:00 pm before they could get a pilot there from Chicago…and to enjoy our wait. Therefore we spent our first day at Lambert Airport!!! Yay!
The pilot arrived, we boarded and got to fly to Vegas. The little snafu put us about five hours behind…my OCD of list and scheduling was sorely tested, BUT we were able to see Vegas all lite up from the sky and missed all the traffic on our way to our first destination – Hurricane, Utah, and Zion National park.
The desk clerk at our lovely motel was not excited about checking us in at 1:00 am…but hey, it wasn’t my fault. So after three four states and three time zone changes….I’m ready to get this party started!!!
The adventures of KJ and ERM will be found here this week…stay tuned!! :-)
