California Bound

Wendy had some time off over the 4th of July Weekend, so we decided to take a little vacation. We hadn’t really made any kind of plans on what we wanted to do, so we decided to make a road trip out of it. We had both heard that northern California is very pretty, so we decided to head that way. Wendy did all the planning and found places for us to stay and things to do. I was content to just come along for the ride. With the high gas prices, we decided it was better to take my car, Bullet, the Nissan Versa. I was hoping to get good gas mileage with the highway driving, but overall it was about what I got driving around in town here 30MPG.

We left Salt Lake on June 30th. We had to drop Madie off at another boarding place as Dogmode was full for the weekend. Heading west, we crossed the Bonneville Salt Flats. It was an interesting thing to see. Flat white ground. Thankfully, this was the day after a cold front had pushed into the area, so it was pleasant traveling weather.

At the Nevada-Utah border is a town called Wendover. It advertises here in Salt Lake for its resort casinos. This picture depticts how the casino is built literally on the state line making it as close as possible for those looking for a respite from LDS land. The white line in the middle of the road is the state line and it says Nevada and Utah on either side of it.
