Franklin waits for the storm to arrive in the high west desert.
driving back to the lonely high desert was tough this time, after a spectacular holiday weekend in Idaho with family and skiing. all it takes is a couple of hours of being appreciated by staff and patients though, and some of the loneliness subsides. hopefully the storm will break enough for me to drive home on friday morning and get a few ski turns in in the magical Wasatch mountains. i'm feeling motivated for a weekend of outdoor adventure. 'til then... one more day of work.
