2002 Canada Trip

Saturday, August 31


Saturday we were up early and heading for Idaho. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast at J R's Restaurant in St. George and continued on our ten-hour tour of Utah. I-15 travels up a giant valley from St. George all the way to the Idaho border. The eastern side of the valley is mountains from St. George, past Provo and Salt Lake City, and finally to the Idaho border. The weather was clear throughout Utah, and the air in Salt Lake City was amazingly crystal clear.

As we left Utah and neared our day's goal of Pocatello, we looked up to see a curtain of rain clouds ahead. Fortunately, they stayed ahead of us and finally parted as we reached Pocatello. As we walked to a restaurant for dinner, the sky had cleared and we had a gorgeous evening.
