day two: still alive, very sweaty
Th wild west has been a pretty mixed bag so far. California was predictably awesome, Reno predictably sucked a little bit and the stretch of hot acrid desert between Reno and Salt Lake almost sucked the life out of us. But then we passed The Great Salt Lake, "great" because of it's size and NOT because of it's quality as a swimming spot, and the hills rose again and the green sprung out of them and our drive has been lovely ever since. We're sleeping in Steamboat Springs tonight and are off to Rocky National Park and Boulder/Denver tomorrow, where I'll be sure to take the time to upload pictures from the trip and write with more vigour.
