We were advised by the nice lady in the Mexican restaurant that Utah is an alcohol free state, so there we were at 8:15 am in Helena trying to get into a liquor store to stock up...shameful.

... a bit of a let down... Firstly i did not expect Roswell to be a city and secondly aliens definitely weren't what you needed to be scared of! The museum was kind of cool although nothing really special. That night we made our way to Carlsbad where we explored the caverns. This was pretty cool and not as scary as i thought plus the elevator at the end went incredibly fast!
To break up our journey a bit, it was decided that we would make ...
