<– Day 15 – Wednesday March 23rd: Blizzards & Balloons | Beginning –>

On Thursday morning we left Cortez, Colorado, bound for Salt Lake City and dinner with my kids. There was no messing around on the way home. Based on the weather report, we had a slim window between Friday and Saturday to get through the Blue Mountains in Oregon, so we didn’t want to linger anywhere.

We arrived in Salt Lake with time to spare. My kids left it up to me to decide on dinner, so I checked yelp and found Mi Lindo Nayarit, a Mexican seafood restaurant. They were fine with hit, so, long story short, it turned out to be an excellent choice. Ann and I ordered the Molcejete, a meaty delight of shrimp, beef, chicken, cheese, cactus, and more. It was awesome! In fact, everything we ordered was great. The yelpers were right, this is a hidden gem.


The Molcejete, a two-person meal.

After dinner, we drove to Twin Falls for the night. On Friday we raced home, hoping to dodge the snow expected in the Blue Mountains. We did hit some snow, but it wasn’t sticking yet.

That ends another adventure, though the end came a few days earlier than we’d planned (bad blizzards, bad!). Thanks to everyone who helped make the trip another memorable one for us!!!!

The next trip will likely be a jaunt down to Salt Lake in early June to celebrate the high school graduation of my youngest son. That’s the last of my high schoolers. They grew up fast!
