When my niece Crystal called and said her graduation and pinning from nurses training was being held on December 11th in Grand Junction, Colorado I said “UGH!” My mind screamed No! Traveling from Tennessee to Colorado in December is NOT a good idea!
Fast forward through the summer and fall and as quick as ever December arrives. My sous-chef dish-washing mom, traveling hubby and I flew into Salt Lake City and then drove the 4 1/2 hours to Grand Junction. The graduation weekend was wonderful. The weather was cool, crisp and clear — just perfect for December. We had such a good time.
Before flying home out of Salt Lake City, we spent a quick 24 hours with my son and his family in Logan, Utah. On the drive to Logan, the sky was blue, clear, crisp and perfect.
