Well, two very important streaks were broken today. First, I stayed in a hotel/motel for the first time. Andrea got too tired to keep the car going last night, so we stopped a little early, with my threats of an early morning start. I am so determined to get to Lake Tahoe on time to get in an evening mountain bike ride. So we stayed in a little motel in nowhere, Wyoming USA. We got a pretty early start to the morning, but there was nowhere to grab a quick breakfast, and in Salt Lake City, I broke down and had fast food for the first time on my trip (McDonalds). At least I made it half way through my trip!! Which, speaking of that, I believe this is the exact half point of my trip…that is kinda a bummer, but I have had a heck of a time…and have another 5.5 weeks to make life long memories.

It was a pretty cool drive through Utah. Check out the pic of a salt field. I tasted I can assure you it was salt.

After a very long day of driving (more than 600 miles), we finally arrived in Lake Tahoe around 6:30pm…just enough time for me to get in a quick ride. The beauty of this place blows my mind, once again. Lake Tahoe has it all for people who love the outdoors (biking, rock climbing, water sports, skiing)…all with some of the most beautiful views in the world…love it here!!
We finally made it to the place we are staying here (one of Andrea’s friends dad), and the house is amazing!! It is just outside of Lake Tahoe at Squaw Valley, 6 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a HUGE deck with beautiful views…AND…the best thing ever…a huge hot tub!! So, of course, right after dinner, we jump right on in that thing! What a way to relax after a long day of driving and ride!!
