After reading through our crazy travels from the past 24 hours, you could understand how tiring it was to wake up the next day - without a vehicle - and knowing that we still had a destination to get to, along with many plans that we hoped to experience along the way. Instead of letting this hiccup change our plans, we simply re-adjusted. I said goodbye to my beloved highlander (with over 200,000 miles on it + a burnt transmission, it wasn't worth the cost to repair) and rented  the one and only car available in the small town we were in. Back on track we were!

After just a short drive to southern Utah (our original destination the day before) we made it to our next stop: St. George, Utah!

As a reward? Maggie and I went to In-N-Out... Maggie's first time trying it!

After lunch, we explored this special city and visited the Inn on the Cliff - a really neat hotel where we had initially made reservations the night beforehand to stay at. Though throughout this trip we did things on the cheap - every once in awhile we made a splurge by enjoying something a little higher-end. For me two of my favorite things to experience during travels is food + unique accommodations. This hotel was exactly that! Unfortunately they no longer had rooms available for the night we were in town - but the manager was so incredibly hospitable and blessed us with an all-access pass to their pool & jacuzzi that overlooked this incredible view! It was honestly the perfect way to unwind & reflect.

We were absolutely blown away by the overall hospitality & kindness by everyone we had met so far during this trip, especially in Utah. An even bigger reminder to go into new adventures open-minded and taking each new day as it comes - because you truly never know what you'll be met with!
