LM and I planned to drive back to Utah with my sister after Christmas so she wouldn't have to drive alone. A few hours into the trip and along the only 15 mile stretch without cell service, we had a tire problem. We were lucky that a nice lady and her daughter stopped while my sister was walking to get cell service and was able to call her husband (after 10 minutes on hold with AAA) to have a tow truck come pick us up and take us to St. George to get the car fixed.
Deciding to make the best of the situation, we took a few pictures while we waited. We could have been stuck in a worse place, don't you think?
I have always wanted to stop here for a photo shoot and lunch (we were within walking distance of the picnic area) but this wasn't quite the way I had planned it.
It was a chilly but beautiful day with not a cloud in the sky.
And below is our ride to St. George. Yes, four of us were stuffed in the cab of that truck.
After lunch and a visit to the Santa Clara public library we were on our way, arriving at our destination about fours hours later than planned.
Luckily, the car is fine and so are we. Things could have been much, much worse and we are thankful that all turned out well and we had a little fun on top of it. And we'll always remember the trip.
