Photos from the Passenger Seat
This is Devils Slide... I love rock formations, wish I had had time to climb a bit of this, but since I was moving cross country, there was just no way, but I did catch this photo at 65 mph. I wasnt driving... There are several of these formations in Idaho along the way into Oregon, but this was the first time I seen it with snow. Beautiful. I have traveled all over the U.S.A, I have seen the big cities, the little towns, and the unknown hot spots where locals gather. It never amazes me what one finds boring another finds fascinating.
Just near the Colorado border while in Wyoming, headed home to the Pacific Northwest, I got to see the snow of the Rockies, more in the melting form, this is Elk Mountain, very impressive. So high up but no worries of bad ice or snow on the road, it was a perfect chance to move back to my home area. I was almost 7 months pregnant while moving back, and it just felt good to have all my possessions and in the direction of North West..
We drove late into the night on two nights when it seemed there was no traffic near the bigger cities we were having to travel thru. This is the last night of driving late, and this wonderful sunset photo was taken somewhere near Nebraska/Wyoming border. You just dont realize how high you are up until your ears start to pop when you come down a bit off a small hill, or climb higher into the foothills of the Rockies.
I never did find out what this building was, but I think at one point it served as a stopping point in Wyoming, and now its some ones home. But regardless its neat, I have never seen this before on my travels, but glad that I had the camera ready to take a picture of it. Its like a lighthouse out in the middle of a sea of sage brush and tumbleweeds.
I have so many photos of my travels from here and there, just as so many other bloggers share, but these are mine, simple, and true, we all have a path, it just depends on the person in how they want to share it, or maybe not..
