Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah...

What a wonderful world. I see trees of green, and red mountains too, and I think, to myself; what an amazing creator that we serve. To look at a nature that we do not see in the flatlands. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Today we traveled all the way across southern Wyoming, and while the flora was Texas like, the landscape was definately of another place. I was in awe for most of the day at the handiwork of our savior and the variety that He has put before the eyes of man to witness to His presence. To see snow in June is amazing for me after leaving behind 100 degree temps in Lubbock.
We have arrived safely in Ogden, Utah. We will be shaking upo with the Bomar clan for the next couplke of days, as long as they can stand us...
I am proud of us, two days in a van and we are still laughing with one another.
I pray that God will show us a side of each other to appreciate more fully, and learn new things that excite each other. May God bless our journeys for the rest of this greast adventure. Amen.

Our first day!

well, we made it through or into 3 states today and we didn't kill each other or leave anybody at a rest stop. The rest of West Texas was pretty much the same as Lubbock. Lots and lots and lots of nothing but fields. There were some pretty stinky towns, such as Amherst. Who knew that cows could smell that bad. Wel, I guess if you have a million of them together, they can't help but smell. Whew, it was really bad. New Mexico has a lot of nothing too, But mixed in were some assorted mountain look-alikes. In Colorado, of course, the scenery got more interesting. The mountains were really pretty. We stopped at a neat diner, similar to the Pumpjack Diner, in Wichita Falls. We all had breakfast for dinner. It was great. The waitress asked if we were from around here! It was just like in the movies! Then she asked where we were from and where we were headed. She told us that she was going to guess by our accent that we were from Tennessee! I laughed. We don't so…
