Today we got from Nevada, through Utah, to Wyoming. The view is changing dramatically, from dry and sandy to green and lively, from flat to rocky, from empty fields to busy towns. It's funny that we've gone through three states, but there were only few towns on the way of Interstate Highway 80.  The biggest one was Salt Lake City with remains of Great Salt Lake where the salt is collected for Morton Salt Co. and where Jet Blue outsourcing takes place. It is also a home to Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, commonly called the Mormon Church. We were impressed of the magnificence, the size and the quantity of their churches around the city. Whatever huge building appeared to be a government office, bank or a library, happened to be the Church of Latter Day Saints... Whether modern or Disney-like castle, its magnitude is breathtaking!

 




 




 




 




I especially adore the Great Salt Lake. The white minerals collecting in the water basins look incredible in the fields of Utah! They make impression of a snow somewhere in the middle of summer...

We have not have any steak yet (Ian!), but have seen many potential steaks walking on the fields... 
 still on the list...

It's funny how you can find casinos in Nevada in even smallest town. Old simple building with few coin machines, but they are everywhere! Some of them really historical, but still sparkling with their neons, attracting the vampire gamblers. 24-7 pulsating life inside the building, colorful neons put you in trance, 1 cent slot machines hipnotizing you with "Credit" until you loose most of what you put in. you walk out of the building not knowing whether it's day or night... 






















Well, it's way into the night right now. Mountain Time with its 1 hour ahead makes us sleepy, especially Nazar who is way into Dream Land by now... I'm ready too...

Good Night!
