Over the hills, not too far away

Treated myself to a half-day road trip today, going from Palmer Lake, CO westward, just exploring, enjoying discovering a landscape I have not seen before. It goes from open pastureland with, mostly, horses in large and small herds, to a more hilly landscape punctuated with grey boulders. There is a... Sign in to see full entry.

Charlie took all the pictures along the road, and mine are the viewpoint shots of trees and landscapes. You can probably tell the difference: he has his own eye with the lens! The stretch of I-70 that runs between I-15 in Utah, and Denver--they could sell tickets! But, so far, they don't.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's after 4 am...

and I am awake, and my brain seems to be working again more or less properly. I've prepared more photos for you, of a few miles of Oregon, not much of Idaho, and a fair bit of the stretch of I-84 and I-80 on the border of Utah and Wyoming. That was day before yesterday, now. We spent one night in... Sign in to see full entry.

There is a hill...

It rises east of Pendleton, Oregon, a 3-lane highway with gradients from 2 to 8% for 10 miles. It was one of the particular things on today's route I had some worries about--that hill, and high winds in the Columbia River Gorge. There was rain, but no wind, and we sailed over the hill at 45-50mph,... Sign in to see full entry.

More new photos

Photos are catching up... partly because I am not taking nearly as many as might be taken, as most of my attention has been on driving. When it isn't, I forget things like checking the gas level and end up filling the 34 gal tank with 33.8 gallons all at once.... Sign in to see full entry.

From Olympia...

Dubious internet connections and long, tiring driving days have kept me from here for a couple of days, but at least without being able to get online, I have been keeping up with prepping photos to show here... This next set is from the day after the morning of the previous set... the stretch from... Sign in to see full entry.

First pictures of the current trip...

There haven't been as many photos taken along the road as I'd have sometimes stopped to take--we feel the time constraint, having to get home again by the 24th. But now and then, we are stopped anyway, or just can't resist. Here are the ones from the first day out, the first morning on the road...... Sign in to see full entry.

On the road again...

My distance-seeing glasses did not arrive, so we left without em, and I will manage until I get back to Olympia where my glasses credit will be available with the actual health benefits I have there... and so will essentially be a free 'spare pair.' That being so, we actually got out of town around... Sign in to see full entry.

Here we almost go...

The roadtrip to California and thence to Olympia begins today, sometime this afternoon. The morning may begin with selling the old RV to someone who came by and knocked on the door to enquire about it yesterday. If he decides not when he comes over this morning, then when I get home I will donate it... Sign in to see full entry.

Colorado winter sky

Now, here's a shot in the dark... When we went out to the car last night to go to the show, this was over the house, and... I got the shot! Sign in to see full entry.
