The next day we woke up early and drove down to Utah, through Idaho, to Logan, Utah and Utah State University. We took a tour around campus, which was pretty empty because the students were on spring break. It was a nice day so that afternoon we drove up into the mountains around Logan. We were free on Friday so we decided to take a trip to Promontory, where the Continental railroad connects, and The Great Salt Lake. Promontory was a ways away so we had to do a little driving to get there. To get to the Salt Lake, we actually had to drive through a cattle ranch on a dirt road. At the lake, I acquired some Great Lake salt. That night, when we got back to Logan, we went out to an all-you-can-eat sushi place, which was delicious.
The following day we headed back north to Montana, stopped at West Yellowstone for lunch, and reached Bozeman that night. On Sunday we headed off so we decided to take a trip to Yellowstone which was only a couple hours away. We drove the only road that is open during the winter into the park and saw our fair share of Bison up close. We took a tour of the Bozeman campus the next day and checked out the city a little bit. That afternoon we went bowling and played pool on campus. Our flight left from Missoula early Wednesday morning. We had to drive the three hours to get there on Tuesday, and spent the last evening with my sister.
It was a great trip overall, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to visit these colleges. It helped me learn a lot more about the schools and where they are located. I also got a good feel for the college life hanging out with my sis.
