Idaho... Paradise? Uh, No.

We're here in Utah. The drive was pretty good barring the near death experience 15 miles into the trip. No. Not kidding. There was a crashed car in the middle of the dark freeway on I-90E. We saw it because a truck pulled over and, at the last second, I noticed a single white light in the middle of my lane. It was one of the reverse lights still on. I swerved at the last moment, adrenalin hitting my system like a ton of bricks. I got so amp'd, so quickly, that details of the crashed car came back to me over the next 15 minutes while I shook and drove. (Things like the front left quarter of the car crumpled, the wheel missing.)

Other than that, there was a some fog to contend with but it was all easily navigated. The worst part of the trip was how boring the drive was. I tried to do an LJ post from Deadman's Pass in Oregon but I had no signal. From there, we passed Hell's Canyon, Black Canyon, Bliss, Heaven, Paradise and Eden. All in Idaho. All looking exactly the same. I could never live in Idaho. Utah at least has some fascinating geological features.

Met with Jeff's parents briefly. They welcomed me with open arms. I'm pleased. Tomorrow, I get to meet their new poodle puppies. Having grown up with poodles, I see much romping with the cuties.
