Picture of the Day!

The iglide® Car stopped at one of the biggest fairs in the country, the Minnesota State Fair. The car even saw a lumberjack competition of the fair grounds and had homemade custard.

While driving through the west it was bound to happen that the iglide® Car would run into a few bales of hay. Today the car leaves South Dakota but this will not be the last of the hay. 

Picture of the Day!

The iglide® Car has made it to one of the most patriotic landmarks in the United States, Mount Rushmore, South Dakota. The car is patiently waiting for its turn to be sculpted into the famous granite mountain. 

Colorado

From Salt Lake City it was time to head to Colorado. The drive from Utah to Colorado is a stunning ride through the desert and mountains. Moab Desert is a famous National Park in Utah and the iglide car took on another adventure and drove through Moab. The road through the desert goes through miles of red rock arches and other intricate rock formations. To give an idea of what it is like, imagine giving a child red clay to play with for the afternoon. The rocks and formations look like someone placed them carelessly on top of each other and yet they stay stacked and balanced on top of each other. For instance “Balanced Rock” is a rock formation where a round rock is balanced on top of a cylindrical rock. It gives the illusion that if the wind were to blow the rock on top would fall over. Moab was breathtaking. Almost equivalent to the Grand Canyon’s majestic aura.
