We got some pretty amazing shots of the Arizona and Utah landscapes. There was a point called Ghost Rock that overlooked an amazing array of red rock mountains. There were smart truckers just parked there for the night. I admire anyone that can plan to wake to a view like THAT.
The Comfort Inn was a bit more expensive, but the pool was very fine, and the hot tub was very deep and VERY hot. Hot enough to put Jet right to sleep after the long day. Plus instead of the usual double doubles we've been putting up with, we have a King bed for John and I and a pull out sofa bed for Jet. Much nicer for all involved.
I'm happy with the free wireless, too.
We're within striking distance of home, now, and should arrive in plenty of time to unpack, do a ton of laundry, stock up on a few things to eat and then collapse. Home. It'll be nice. :-)
