Here's my Sister, Nephew, Mom and Aunt seeing me off this morning!

The drive was great...it started off a bit rainy but cleared up after 20 minutes or so and there was very little traffic even going thru Las Vegas.

I stopped at the Mad Greek for Lunch and the place had tons of classical plaster cast sculptures surrounding the place~ Very appropriate. I had a huge Gyro ~ Yum!

These Snow capped mountains were spectacular! This place is definitely colder than LA!

Karen it's so exciting and I LOVE your ride - parked next to the semi is too funny. And what a perfect first stop for lunch - that is so great - did they know what an honor they had, what part they were playing in the great story. Thanks for bringing us with you and stay well, Ellen

Good to hear the first day went so well and happy traveling as you go along. We liked your pictures and we're glad you're not driving that big rig you parked next to. Love, Gram and Gramps
