Of course, Sara didn't believe me when I told her the interstate in Utah was closed due to brush fires. I was driving my brother to Utah. We got a late start so we already expected to arrive in Salt Lake late at night. But rather than wait for the smoke to blow over we took one of the longest detours of my life. For the next hour we drove south, down into Arizona... it seemed like forever before we turn north again... up the 89 which slows down at every small town it passes through. We passed through Kanab... a long way off from our original route. After nearly three hours we finally pulled back onto the interstate shortly above the point we had pulled off. On the way home I snapped a few pictures of the brush fire still blazing.
