It’s late and we made it to Salt Lake City after 15+ hours of travel, but there was some trouble along the way. The short version is that a repair to the left front axle seal that we had done just two days before leaving on the trip decided to start leaking while we were high in a mountain pass many miles from any form of service. After lots of praying, some kind help from some fellow travelers and a great garage mechanic, we nursed the van into SLC.
More tomorrow after I’ve had some rest and gained a little more perspective on the trials of the day. But, even with this trouble we laughed a lot of the way and are in good spirits tonight.
p.s. I’ve added more pictures to the flickr set. Some wildlife in Yellowstone.
