Day 15: Spiral Jetty, once more with feeling

The last day of our trip began with a morning jaunt back to the Jetty, where we saw Smithson's work in a new light, met the man who is in charge of making sure the road there is passable, and ran into a couple of girls from Indiana.








We stopped in at the Golden Spike National Monument to freshen up and celebrate transcontinental railroad travel.


And then we headed to In-N-Out Burger to fill our bellies and celebrate the grand fast food traditions of the American West.


Our trip home was not without delays, rebookings, waiting, and an unexpected sunrise trip to Philadelphia, but we did make it home.


And our extra hours in Salt Lake City were made better by this little guy, Benny the Beagle, the airport's emotional support animal for disgruntled travelers. 


This is the end of #SLCinAAW's web presence for now, but you can follow Benny on social media until we return with another crop of student adventurers.
