Story:

Cheap flights equals trip time.  This trip was all about state capitals and national parks.  Salt Lake City was pretty nice, the Salt Lake Temple was beautiful.  Pokemon Go was at its peak during this time so there were just a bunch of people out and about around the Temple doing Pokemon Go things.  The next morning we started driving north. First stop was the Golden Spike National Historic Site, this was pretty cool seeing where east met west and connected the US. Next stop was City of Rocks National Reserve Visitor Center, then lunch at Almo Creek Outpost.  I had the best steak sandwich ever. Onto Boise where we walked around the Boise State University Campus, a downtown street festival, and along the river. We both really liked Boise, it had a very small town feel. Next morning we started heading back to Salt Lake, stopping at Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument, an Oregon Trail Overlook, Ogden’s George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park, and Antelope Island State Park.  Antelope Island had a couple herds of buffalos. After Antelope Island it was time to get some rest at the Holiday Inn Express in Midvale. Next morning we headed to Utah Olympic Park, Timpanogos Cave National Monument, and Lehi UT for lunch. Idaho and Utah are beautiful states visit.
