Homeward Bound

"WYOMING - Where you lose your dog and you can still see him three days later."
-- Becky, Bus Driver #1

We're on the homeward stretch.

We stop at the Little America in Wyoming...
...where we are greeted and treated...

...to a good ol' American barbecue.
This table is a welcome sight!

Wow! How would it be to have a grill this large? Then again, I don't think I'll ever have the need to feed 600 people at one time.
Fifteen hotel rooms are open to fulfill our restroom needs, but it's actually the beds that look inviting...zzzzz. (I resist the urge.)

Another two hours on the road and we are home safe and sound.
I feel like kissing the ground.
It's a trick to find our luggage; luckily they have been alphabetized.

And that is that! It's been a whirl-wind eleven days -- but so fulfilling. We will never know what we have accomplished on this tour; there is no way of measuring the lives that have been inspired, lifted, and touched. It is our wish that through our music, individuals will have seen the light in our eyes and have had the opportunity to feel the Spirit of the Holy Ghost. That is our mission.

P.S. Just after our arrival home, Audrey receives a visitor:
Elder Matthew Taylor is home from his mission! It is so good to see him again!


  1. Just a note of no value - 211 yards from the back of bus 11 to the front of bus 1 when parked end to end. (very short distance when compared to the cable used to build the golden gate bridge... Two main cables pass over the tops of the main towers and are secured in concrete anchorages at each end. Each cable is made of 27,572 strands of wire. There are 80,000 miles of wire in the two main cables, which equals a little more than 3 times around the earth.

  2. ... and your right. It would be nice to have a BBQ that large and...It was good to see Matt again.
