Driving through most of the Northwest, you are treated to one amazing scene after the other. Sometimes the terrain will change dramatically in just a couple of miles...it is such an amazing land. I ended up taking about 260 photos that day. Today though I'm going to break it up with a few examples of the many, many other interesting sights along the way.
Let's start in Idaho with scenery and agriculture...
And my favorite of this group...can you find the white butt of the antelope in this photo? It is already cropped pretty deeply but there is an antelope at about the center...trust me!
It was lightly raining as we entered Utah and when we stopped for gas (you are welcome to contribute to a gas fund anytime...just kidding...for now anyway!) there was a hail storm.
This is a favorite of mine...a brilliant white light illuminating this small farm on an overcast day.
Triple trailers are only allowed on I-80 through Ohio and Indiana, and select Western states so you won't see this on most highways.
What can I say...I loved the colors and shapes on this silo and barn too.
Of course no drive through Utah would be complete without photos of red rocks in various formations.
Can you understand why I keep exhausting my supply of superlative adjectives to describe what we have seen and experienced? It's all so indescribably beautiful and fascinating and mesmerizing.
And then we crossed into Wyoming again, from the west this time...remembering our time in Cheyenne at the eastern edge a few weeks ago. We only went as far as Rock Springs but saw all this varied terrain in that relatively short distance. As evening fell, a golden glow was cast over the earth.
