We have meandered today. Day of relaxing really. Tootled around the Main Street pottering in the shops. An afternoon stroll and then a leisurely drive up through the hills to the ski resorts. Stunning scenery. Fall is just beginning, the trees are starting to turn. The sun is out and the light wind is bringing an autumnal chill. ...
... Did not sleep one bit that night, partly due to the excitement of the gig, but primarily due to The Three Fat Snoring Tenors. Jesus, I've heard snoring before, but this was like a ******* earthquake! Well despite all its negatives, the hostel did at least have a free breakfast so went down with my new fat friend, who managed to occupy the space of three breakfast stools just by himself.

... a place to eat dinner, we noticed that the hotel is in an Asian area and all the stores signage is in both English and Chinese. Which is interesting. We ended up finding a pizza place for dinner.

... to take a lunch break, fortunately finding a rest area with a covering. I say fortunately because soon after we left the car, clouds suddenly rolled in and it began down pouring. Our car seemed to have grown rain magnets. Unlike in the Badlands, the rain let up after a few minutes and we continued on our way. We arrived at my family's house in Salt Lake a little after 10pm.
