The drive to Richfield was pretty much unremarkable. We drove most of the way on I – 15 so the drive was easy and pretty quick. The speed limit in UT is 75. The road was very good except through the Salt Lake City area which had a lot of construction.
The scenery is quite a change from green farm land to brownish looking arid lands. We saw a lot of potato and alfalfa fields in ID. The area around Richfield is very arid and the hills and mountains are made up various color bands. It was raining and overcast as we arrived today and has rained a little more tonight. I’m sure they needed the rain.
We are going to stay here tomorrow and rest up, wash clothes, get the oil changed in mini and give it a bath. To say the car is dirty is a bold understatement! We are determined to finish out our trip but both of us are getting pretty road weary (Tom:Not me!). Tomorrow’s break is much needed.
