Today, Taylor and I entered Utah. There are big skies, big plains, big buttes (I cannot lie), and big mountains. We stopped at Dinosaur National Monument, which would have been cool if it was open. Luckily it had a sign that said there was ANOTHER Dinosaur National Monument about 24 miles down the road. So we went. We got a tour (which involved a wall of half excavated real dinosaur bones, and a round of applause from the people who drove up the hill to get there and watched us slave up it).
Our stay with my aunt and uncle and cousin was wonderful, and we got some solid training in. At the same time, it’s a good feeling to be back on our own. we are camping tonight on the open range, neighboring the majestic landscape on our way to the race. Posts will once again become frequent!

DO NOT drink the water from that big-ass lake. It’s saltier than salt. It will make your cells shrivel up like raisins. Thats about all the advice I have to give you from a state I’ve only heard of in folk lore
apparently, if you even look at that big-ass lake, your whole entire face will shrivel up like a date. It’s something about the salt refracting light and some weird energy transfer, i’m not sure. But we will definitely heed your advice and steer clear of that big-ass lake
Miss you something fierce! xoxo, mom
