Crystalee here, and I'm pleased to announce that after last weekend I have seen 49 of the 50 United States! Thanks to the time I spent as a full-time flight attendant, I knocked down most of them. My goal this year has been to finish all 50 at age 25. I'm determined to do it! Just Rhode Island left to see.
Last weekend I stayed in Portland, Maine, then rented a car and drove across New Hampshire to Vermont. I missed the blazing Autumn leaves this year, but there were still batches of color here and there - enough to quite delight me. New England is so beautiful! I would love to spend more time there in the height of Fall.
I enjoyed finding Sharon, Vermont, the place where Joseph Smith was born. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am grateful for him and how his dedicated life has influenced mine.
