Long Drive

But not really long.

I like driving, especially at night. I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again right now because I just got back from a drive.

I drove for perhaps 30 minutes south along the west side of Utah Lake, which isn’t a particularly impressive lake. Well, it looks impressive. It’s huge. It’s not, however, a very fun lake to be in or around as the water quality isn’t what I’d call superb. The average depth is 9 feet with a maximum of 14 feet.

While it’s not a great recreational lake, it is nice to look at, and I’ve recently decided that it’s good for night drives.

It was incredibly quiet. Lots of stars were visible. Across the lake I could see Provo, Utah, among other cities (for some reason I can never pick out the border lines in real life like I can on a map).

I stopped and just sat there for a while, taking it all in. And then I came back, ready for bed.

I move to New York City this week. Thanks to Justin, I actually have a place to live now! I am excited to get back to the city for a number of reasons: the city is exciting, working with my coworkers in person, NY pizza, more food, and just doing something different. I will, of course, miss a few things here, one of which is being able to go driving at night whenever I please. So I hope to go a few more times this week.
