What an epic journey!! I "knew" what you were doing . . . but it's different to see the route stretched across America!! And your pictures (including that Wyoming flag!) So reassuring to see good public art that has been funded for the pleasure of travellers: there's a forward thinking bureaucrat or two out there!! You've got at least three lovely months ahead of you, catching up with Bellingham friends and family: and then you'll figure out what to do/where to go next!! That's the way life works anyhow, right? We only THINK we get to make plans stretching into the distant future!! 54 days ago
Been far too long since we've had a good road trip.
Is it possible to be on a distribution list for your travel blogs? Since my health pretty much limits me to virtual trips and looking through photos/maps/mementos/journals of trips past, I enjoy blogs like yours that provide history, photos & impressions which bring the areas to life.
Whenever I hear of Indianapolis, I recall the only thing I noticed there, circa 1976, during stop of the bus: A blue mailbox under a green tree at a street corner. That was it. Does any state deserve a second chance?
I love the way you describe your stops and sights along the way, it makes me feel like I am there with you. We have not been to Yellowstone but did get to the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, what a beautiful place.
There is something about seen the hills turn into the high mountains with green and trees and rocks that just makes be feel so happy. I lived in Sacramento and went up into the Sierra's a lot growing up, spent a lot of time camping there later and the 18 months I lived in Tacoma provided access and views of the wonderful Cascades.
We took a vacation after I moved back to So Cal to Bellingham to see Mt Baker and take a day trip across to the San Juan Islands.
We are planning to be in the Puget Sound for a month this summer to escape the Phoenix heat. 54 days ago
