We made it out of Rexburg. It was easier than I thought, of course because I didn't let myself think about it. My dad even called and said, "I half expected you to be crying right now." He knows me too well. As we pulled out of Rexburg we looked back on this wonderful place and the beautiful temple on the hill. I spent eight years of my life in Rexburg and there are so many memories. But to see the temple on the hill as we drove off was a beautiful sight to see.

We took the old highway through Ririe. We were pulling a trailer and want the least elevated road as far as hills and passes are concerned. It wasn't bad at all. In fact it was gorgeous! The palisades were beautiful! I know that I will not be seeing country like this for a long time.
After we made it through the beautiful back country of Idaho and Wyoming, we ended up in the yucky dessert of Wyoming and hit a few storms on the way.

Oh but lets not forget the beautiful scenery in Wyoming. Has everyone seen the tree in the rock?

Then we made a turn south from Cheyenne and headed down to Denver.

We made it to Colby's parents safe and sound and the weather is kind of blah. Colby is out atving with his brother and I am hanging around the house. But we made it and all our stuff is still with us. The tarp had some issues and it did tear in several places and we may have to switch it ou. But we shall see. Wish us luck!
