We were happy to be close to home but a little sad that it was our last day of vacation together. We left Utah after breakfast and drove to Nampa, ID before stopping for lunch.
As we came down Dixie Mtn into the John Day Valley, we both agreed that this is one of the most beautiful places we have seen. We live in a great place! We had smooth driving until we were 5 miles from home, then we were stopped for 15 minutes with road construction.
Our month-long road trip is over...7951 miles later! We questioned whether a road trip in my little Kia Soul was a good idea, given how large we are and the kids would be cozy in the backseat. It worked out perfectly, though! We had one flat tire and a rattling muffler but no major issues, praise God! We couldn't beat the 29-34 mpg, either. I will likely need to give Drew the front seat next trip!
