1. Look at this sunrise, assholes.
  2. I woke up to watch the sunrise and then immediately went back to bed for a stress nap because I wanted to take a shower but I'm scared of Amtrak showers.
  3. Just kidding I took a shower right after I wrote that and surprisingly, showering on a moving train has not even been my worst shower experience to date.
    The water was pretty hot and it wasn't terribly gross.
  4. I went through Utah and Colorado today with a lengthier stop at Denver.
    Only an hour but it was nice to be guaranteed phone service so I could call my mom and my boyfriend.
  5. Now, pictures again!

  11. I read a book and continued working on a very long and detailed letter to my boyfriend (with time-stamped updates of what my days have been like; I might make another list of excerpts from that before I mail it).
  12. I am still completely overwhelmed by the majesty of nature and very glad to be doing this.
