There ain't no damn fish in Utah!

Sal pulled out some superpower tricks and found a nearby lake and we headed back to the diner we found yesterday for some brekkie. We met some nice people from St. George and they recommended a different nearby lake across from where we were headed. They claimed it was much more beautiful so we tried that first. Strike 1 - $10 to get in! =( but wow it was pretty... like an orange sahara dessert with a mirage-like lake in the distance.
We crossed the street to Sal's original destination and it is MUCH MUCH BETTER. No flies, the sun was a bit less scorching, and the water was moving. Thanks Grandfather Lake or whatever you're called! We approach a sandbar like thing to prepare the fishing stuff and RJ IS ATTACKED BY DUCKS AND GEESE! Holy cow, one of them with a black face was just vicious! I got into a mean yelling match with it and it finally went away.
We stopped by a cider-selling market to find the most DELICOUS cider ever and bought a couple of non-Mennonite apples that just weren't as good. =( I pondered life in Utah out the window and thought an organic, simple lifestyle might not be so bad for little bits of time. I think once you see lots and lots of the world.. of course people have different reactions, but I guess mine lends to simplicity and peacefulness. It's been nearly 4 months and I'm still craving that: Healthy, untoxic food, a bit of nature, genuine smiles, and some raucous laughter.
