Cross Country Road Trip Days 2 &3

Los Angeles, California to Denver, Colorado

Our original plans to leave LA early on Day 2 and stop in Utah changed to staying late in LA to see the Hollywood Walk of Fame & drive overnight.

1. Sunrise driving through Utah. The word "majestic" comes to mind.
2. Mom's Cafe in Salina, Utah... After driving all night the eggs, bacon, biscuits & gravy in this little town really hits the spot!
3. Making a rest stop at Georgetown, Colorado. A few minute break at the visitor center & stopping in the tiny espresso/outdoors gear store is a great way to recharge on the road.
4. The ability to throw snowballs in 70 degree weather. Yeah Colorado!
5. The lights of Nevada... And the novelty of there being slot machines at a gas station rest stop.

Reality check: An all nighter driving trip takes more of a toll on me than it used to!

1. Rockin' Down the Highway by The Doobie Brothers
2. Take It Easy by The Eagles
3. Rise Up by Diane Birch
4. Good Life by One Republic
5. Rocky Mountain High by John Denver
