on the road

We got off to a late start this morning. We usually sneak off in the pre-dawn dark. This morning H saw us and R saw us as we were packing the car and about to drive away. That was a party foul.

Now we're in Utah. We stopped in St George for gas. I saw a cowboy. We're not in Las Vegas anymore.

Ming said he wants to go to the Hare Krishna temple just outside Salt Lake City. 

"Why?!" I said. Last time our tourguide laughed at me for losing my breath going up the stairs. The little store had nothing for us.

We're not going to see trilobites this time. We're passing up the chance to see dinosaur trax. I feel excited and a little afraid.
