Utah Check

As a traveler and a photographer, I am always thinking about the next place to explore and visit. Utah was one of those places that I had to visit sooner or later. I always take advantage of my ‘reading week’ to hop into a plane and fly away. This year I flew to Salt Lake City and drove around the state visiting all the National Parks and exploring everything else that was along the way. But this trip was a pain in the butt to plan. Everything went smoothly until the US government decided to shut down. The National Parks were closed and I had to plan an alternate route and re-book my hotels. It was a bit disappointing because the main part of the trip was to visit the National Parks. However, I have to admit that everything fell into place after. I got to the airport early (as usual) so I had some time to read about the government shutdown. I clicked onto the first link that reads “Utah National Parks open”.

Really, how lucky can I be?

I read the first half of the article in the boarding area and the last part on the airplane waiting for the plane to take off. So, it turns out that Utah decides to pay themselves to open up the National Parks on the exact day that I was flying to Salt Lake City. Bingo, everything worked out in the end. I was a happy camper.

As soon as I checked into my hotel for that night, I re-booked some hotels to accommodate my plan A itinerary. Oh yeah, plan B included visiting 6 states in 10 days, cool eh?

The first place that I went to when I picked up my rental car for the trip (Dodge Charger) was to Wal-Mart. I needed to buy some Vitamin water and chips for the road trip. It isn’t a road trip if there aren’t any chips, right?



I prefer white, but I drank all of it.

The reason why I bought those chips was because it was big and on sale. Oh gosh, the chips had never tasted so good before! I finished the bag in 2 days, unbelievable eh? And for the first time, I even had chips as breakfast.

But it doesn’t matter because in the end, I was having a great time.

  5. What’s so pathetic about Columbus discovering “India”, from the other side, was that the Mughals (Turks and Afghans) were running the place and would have kicked his ass if he encroached from the southern side. The British won, some fifty years later, because they applied divide/conquer between semi-independent rajas and their Mughal overlords. Columbus wasn’t nearly as smart as the Brits.
