As I mentioned last week, I spent the majority of this week on a pretty last minute road trip with my friend Heather. She was moving across the country and her husband wasn't able to make the trip with her. I happily filled in to be the keep-her-awake road warrior partner for the journey. We planned our route around some pretty places we wanted to stop - Tahoe, Grand Teton National Park, and Yellowstone. Unfortunately, it was pretty crappy weather (rainy, snowy, foggy, overcast, COLD) pretty much the whole time. We did have some moments of blue skies and luckily it cleared up enough so we both weren't 100% bummed about not getting to see what we had wanted to see. It was a very fun trip. Lots of pretty sights and some good bonding time as well. I am now, of course, absolutely exhausted. And I'm off on another short trip (to visit my sistar in D.C.) in just a few weeks, so I've got to rest up! Here is a random assortment of pictures quickly picked from the 800+ that I took, in no particular order.
The view from here:
|Lake Tahoe. still pretty even though it was extremely overcast.|
|Bonneville Salt Flats |
REFLECTIONS are the best!
|pretty drive through part of Idaho.|
|that's a moose!|
|lots of animal friends!|
|Love the fall colors against the snow even though I hate snow.|
|Clouds were significantly less obtrusive on the second day. |
Wish they would have gotten a little higher, though.
|quadruple mmmm: autumn colors, water, clouds, mountains.|
