So, it turns out that “’til next time!'” refers to like, two seconds later because here I am again :’)
also, DISCLAIMER: I totes don’t mean to bash on Utah in any way…in fact, it’s probably one of the most beautiful states I’ve ever been to (only been to 27 of them, so that probs means nothing), but it’s right up there with Oregon. Let me tell you, if you’ve never experienced a Utah sunset while up in the mountains or canyons, you’re missing out…there is absolutely no comparison to hiking for miiiles uphill and hating yourself the entire time only to turn the corner and find entire ravines and formations of rock twisted in every which way and to see the setting sun radiating soft greys and pinks and yellows as it sets among the trees or worn down rock.
ALSO, amusing story…mountain goats are no joke. We were driving out of Uinta National Forest, and there was this car parked by the side of the road. About two seconds later, this dog leaps out of the window and somehow flings its miniscule body across the length of the river to leap to the other side and start chasing after some mountain goats. And, well, surprise surprise…it got stuck…and just sat there wagging its tail. When we returned 30 min later, there were 6 park rangers and a firetruck on standby to retreive that little hood rat :’) That damn thing better have been made of pure gold for all the trouble they went to for it…
Some stuff to end off with^
