My poor car had only been mind for 2 months. | We decided to keep driving through the night, and stop to get a hotel room in Salt Lake City, Utah the next morning so we could go exploring and take more photos. At 3AM, I was woken up with Jon yelling "You son of a bitch!" and our ride swerving all over the road - and a big deer hitting my window. I didn't know what had really happened at the time, but we were stranded in Colorado (took a wrong turn) for a few hours.
