Not much to say about the return trip except that we left Moab at around 12:00AM this morning and made it back to Rocky Ripple at about 10:00PM. Though the map pin does not indicate it, we returned to Indianapolis via Colorado, Nebraska, and Iowa. There is not much difference between Nebraska and Iowa and I did not get to see much of Colorado owing to the fact that we passed through it in the dark. I guess the highlight of the return trip was stopping at the world's largest truck stop located in Iowa.

The trip was wonderful. I spent time with old friends, saw my daughter's graduation from college, had a memorable time with my son and got to see a sampler of the Western United States. Just enough to whet my appetite for more.
My son Daniel is about to make another Journey. He is a Lieutenant with the 82nd Airborne Division and will be going to Iraq some time in late June to lead his platoon for a year. I ask everyone reading this to say a prayer for Daniel's safe return so that in the future we can see more of the United States of America that we both love so dearly. I don't believe that there is such a thing as too many prayers.
