Yup We're Lost!

Have you ever started out on a perfectly normal road trip and before long you find that you are on an adventure? OK you are lost. I mean really lost. That’s what happened last week. We started out driving to South Dakota to see our youngest daughter and her husband. We hand our Garmin set. We had our Map Quest instructions. And we had our road map. Well we got to Rawlins, Wyoming and while following directions carefully we got off on the wrong exit. We found ourselves on a dirt road in a dumping rain. We were headed over the mountain. There were drop offs and slippery roads. An hour or two later we past a guy on an ATV parked by the side of the road. He informed us that we were about halfway to the regular highway. Sure the views were spectacular but I would rather have gone on a paved road.

This is Sarah's house and despite our best efforts to get lost we got there about an hour earlier that we planned.
