Our plan was to stay one night at Saratoga Lake, and then head straight west down Interstate 80 to Rock Springs, Wyoming the next morning. But our plans often change based on the weather, advice we get, and natural phenomenon. Yesterday, all three impacted our decision-making. As we looked back towards the mountains that we just left, we could barely see their outlines because of the smoke that has blown here from the wild fires in the west. We decided that we didn't need to be in any hurry to head straight west. (Also we don't really want to stay here very long because the mosquitoes are vicious. Those specks in the picture below are not birds, they are mosquitoes buzzing in front of the camera.) The smoke and mosquioes are natural phenomenon that might change the trajectory of our travel.

All our lives, we have heard the phrase "blood, sweat, and tears." It means giving your all and trying your best to accomplish something. We're not sure if we can say that we tried our best today, but we did experience a little tears, sweat and blood.
