In August I drove down to Utah with two friends. They were going to visit family and I was going to visit my BFF Leah. Thank goodness my car has decent AC!
We drove through some intense smoke in eastern Oregon. There were record-setting blazes all over the west this summer, due to a drought on top of low snowfall the winter before. Thanks to climate change and poor forest management, this will happen more and more often.
Finally arriving in Ogden late that night!
Some fun times, including a yummy BBQ, farmer’s market, and a trip to the Natural History Museum in Salt Lake City. The mountain backdrop is so beautiful!
