SLC was a place we planned on hitting. I always wanted to see the city and Vanessa saw a Diners, Drive Inns and Dives episode featuring the Mexican food of the Red Iguana, a Salt Lake favorite.
As we pulled in, the rain hit and continued. So instead of walking around the city, we drove around a bit before lunch. We saw the Church of Latter Day Saints and what looked to be a cool city. It has a rail system running through downtown so we could have dropped the truck of and rolled, but the rain took the fun out that idea so we went to lunch.
Lunch was awesome
We rested our stomachs (and contemplated napping in the parking lot) before hitting the road. We stopped at the salt flats which looks like a lake of snow in the desert. We drove to Elko through the pre-desert. It stormed in the desert here, for real ya know. We are five hours outside of Reno, tomorrows destination, and it is thunder storming and hailing, with quick breaks of sunshine before another round of storms.
now in Nevada for the night, we decided to do this entry tomorrow, just chill and go to bed early, but I began to think that it was extremely bright for 9:00. Vanessa picked up her phone and we realized that we passed through into the Pacific time. So that extra hour gave us the time to keep you up to date.
