Spent a lovely weekend with Leta. She’s turning into a great traveller. We were headed north to see my sister and her family near Bear Lake and the shortest route (through a canyon) was closed. We did not find this out until we arrived the canyon and saw the patrol car with cones stopping traffic. We ended up taking a nearly two hour detour through some of the worst blowing and drifting snow that I’ve driven. But we made it.
Daily affirmation: Stay with it. TL;DR: The results are always worth it. Even if you later decide to not stay with it, staying with it for whatever time will have taught a thing or twenty of inestimable value.
