From Portland to Denver, so much can happen! It was a lot of nothingness speckled with lots of amazingly beautiful scenery, especially in Utah. Here are some snaps!

|Tricia learns to pump gas! Yes, us Oregonians have no clue how to pump our own gas.|
|The majority of Oregon, Idaho & Wyoming looks like this. A whole lot of nothing!|
|as we approached Utah we started to see some beautiful mountains|
|beautiful mountains in Utah!|
|taking photos while driving is my thing|
|Welcome to Wyoming, the longest stretch of nothing you'll ever see. Except for Texas, I've been told.|
|the little Nissan Suzuki made it up this hill! Yeah! Go lil Suz!|
|Possibly my favorite treat of the trip, and probably just life in general right now. Unsalted peanut butter filled pretzels from Trader Joe's paired with exactly two M&M's in the same bite. They key is pairing these together! delish.|

My favorite moment of the trip was this stretch of mountains where it appeared like we were entering a mountain crevice and there were huge snow covered mountains on each side of us. It was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. I loved Utah but was pretty bored in Wyoming! We drove from Portland to Layton, UT in 12 hours and stayed the night in a Comfort Inn. Then we drove for about 9 hours all the way to Denver. I'm glad I got the chance to road trip, I just wish I didn't have to leave Tricia there! I will miss that girl, but I know she's got a good life ahead of her in Denver.
