ruthless compassion

We started the day in Las Vegas and are ending it in Green River, UT, a town that seems to consist of 3 gas stations, 4 fast food joints and 5 motels. This one has free wifi, even! So nice!

We made pretty good time over very hilly country today, and drove through some amazingly gorgeous landscapes. It's been years since I did a long road trip, and this reminds me how driving across the US is a great way to reconnect with how many ways the world has to be breathtakingly beautiful.

The best snapshot moment of today's drive, which we missed the chance to capture on my phone, because we were past it before we'd fully registered what we'd seen, was the car pulled over by a state trooper, presumably for speeding. As we drove by, we saw four people in a line having their photos taken by a fifth; in the line was the trooper, who was obviously being involved in a souvenir photo op.

Now, I think I'll go to bed.
