Driving through Utah..

Utah is a state which we actually had no idea of what it was. It wasn’t famous for us like other states, such as California, Texas, Florida etc. But while driving through that state (this is actually what we merely did… driving through), we found it surprisingly beautiful and diverse. The nature got it all, although we freezed nearly to death.

We actually drove on the interstate 70, so nothing special, a typically huge American interstate, but it was a super scenic road going up hills and through canyons and the nature changed every hour. In between our longer drive we paused for an overnighter in Fremont Indian State Park (in the Fish Lake Mountain and National Forest area) and at Snow Canyon State Park near St. George UT, before we entered Nevada and got back to the desert and desert temperatures 😜😎.

    1. Utah war überraschend schön, tatsächlich. Salt Lake City wäre jetzt definitiv noch zu kalt und zuweit nördlich von unserer Route, das lassen wir aus. Haha.. als stetige Nichtraucher ist das nicht gerade ein Kriterium für uns 🙂
