Fast Times at Spring Creek High

Posted in Family, Stormy Skies, Travel by leahyetter on June 8, 2010

We’ve been in Nevada for a few days for the high school graduation of Patrick’s nephew Kaleb. It was a windy yet beautiful drive through Wyoming. Salty, humid and hilly through Utah. Dry desert through Nevada. A 10 hour drive and I loved every minute.

Kaleb graduated 3rd in his class. Such a smart and kind young man. I enjoyed meeting him and his friends.

Yay Kaleb!

Congratulations Kaleb and the 2010 Spring Creek High School Graduates!

Our drive home was great until we got back into Wyoming. Storms were brewing all around us.

Sheets of rain were blanketing the meadows and farmlands.

We drove as hard as we could but were not successful at outrunning the storm.

And WAM! Suddenly we were caught in a massive hail storm on highway 34. Have you ever been inside a car when hail is pounding so hard you can’t hear what the person next to you is saying? If you have, you know what I’m talking about. Frightening.

We made it home safely just before it started pouring down at the ranch. We slept so good to the sound of rain I barely remember my head hitting the pillow.
