If you have been following along, you will know that yesterday was our longest journey of the whole trip - hence the title :-)
We left Layton, Utah at 8.01am, not bad for wanting to leave at 8 !
It was really funny to hear the GPS state, 824km (512m) on I-80-W :-)
I took the first stint and was shouting out when a photo opportunity came up, as there was a lot of snoozing going on !
First off was a couple of sleeping dragons - that is what I see anyways, can you?
You might have to squint your eyes at this one, but I do see a dragons head LOL!
Do you see it? If not, it's still a good photo :-)
Now as we traveled this wonderful llloooong road, Andy got a great photo showing how hot it was - 100f (38c).
We drove past the Bonneville Salt Flats, this is where they do the Land Speed Record testing.
A photo opportunity for Shannon - she wore this outfit because she wanted to be comfortable for the long journey. I love her in this.
Not such a great photo opportunity for Emily :-( I think she was over tired, or maybe Andy said something to her LOL!
And of course the obligatory face or two. This one even has eyes in it LOL!
These two, you do have to look, but they are there.
We encountered two storms on the way along the I-80-W, this dust storm. Never seen one up close and personal, let alone drive through it! And a torrential rain storm, glad Andy was driving through that one!
See, very long road :-)
So, our final aim was to arrive in Vallejo, California before 8pm and we made it. Arrived at the hotel at 7.38pm - hooray!
Tally of miles 734 (1181km) yesterday. Total now stands at 2988 miles (4809km) end of day 8.
Today we are off to Golden Gate National Park and Muir Woods, San Francisco.
We then end the day at our next hotel, in Merced, California ready to visit Yosemite tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments and following our journey.
Happy Hump Day.
