cross country journey




I won’t be on here for a bit (not that many will notice!), because we are heading to Colorado.  Just.  For.  Grins.  The above photo was taken several years ago when we drove cross country to Nevada.  We were spinning through the Rocky Mountains in November and snow was on the ground from West Virginia all the way to Nevada.  I wasn’t thrilled about going cross country BUT with a deal that we wouldn’t drive 10 hours a day AND we would stop often and walk AND we would stop at every state line visitor center….I agreed.  The eastern side of the country was more boring to be because I’d seen it already many, many times.  But Kansas on I was in love!  Driving is the way to go for sure as far as sight-seeing, but for efficiency’s sake we are flying this time and seeing whatever we please.  I’ll be back.

We soon will be setting sail for parts west, driving from the east coast to the southwest desert and back again. Two months of travel; eighteen states, weather permitting, seeing many friends and family members along the way. I’ve stressed the importance to my husband of ample photo opportunities along the way for my mental, physical and emotional health AND so that I can blog about our journey. This will be the first time ever we will have crossed the country in a car. Wish us luck but also if you have any advice please share. I’ve uploaded the WP app onto my iPhone and will be testing it this week before our departure. If it is acceptable, I will use that most of the time until we arrive at our Christmas destination where they have, thankfully, all the modern devices to which one is accustomed.
