This summer I took a 5,000-mile road trip vacation visiting four states I had never been in. After the road trip I wrote your Utah governor a letter. I have received no reply, not even an automated one.

I told your governor that I'd be ashamed to welcome visitors to Utah with the rest areas on your interstates. They were in very poor shape.

I told him if the rest stop was so remote that utilities were not available and an outdoor toilet was all that was available, at the least someone should visit it daily and clean it. I also mentioned the one at Bonneville Salt Flats. The rest area building was boarded up with porta potties next to it. The area looked like it had been nice at one time. Surrounding states have clean, usable rest areas.
