And we're off! Scott and I have officially hit the road out west. Our first stop is South Dakota where we'll visit the Sturgis Rally (a huge motorcycle rally). While we're there, we'll also hit some of the national parks including Mount Rushmore. AND I'll be meeting Lisa from Books.Lists.Life. Could I be more excited? I don't think so.
After South Dakota it's west for Yellowstone where Scott and I will be roughing it in a tent. If you can't tell from the pink jacket and helmet below, I'm kind of a girly girl, but I think I'll survive. Don't I kind of look like a pink Power Ranger? By the way, we are taking the bike but not driving it--we'll be in the truck. (And in the background you can see my car--Lola Sunshine).
Our trip (we actually won't be going through Montana and will be staying in Pueblo on the way home, but this is as close as I could get):
Scott and I are very blessed to have a love for travel in common. Sometimes I take it for granted that people want to travel, especially road trip style, but that's not always the case. We've taken some amazing trips in the past four years, but some of my favorite times have been in the car. I always joke that I fell in love with Scott on the road. Since Texas is so giant, we would take hours long road trips from destination to destination. One of my favorite trips was last fall when we flew into Boston and drove through Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts (link will take you to pictures on my "personal" blog).
Honestly? I'm not sure there's anything else like an open road.
Do you like road trips? What is favorite that you've been on? Any you'd recommend?
p.s. I do have a few scheduled posts for the week, but in reality I'll be completely Internet-less (woohoo). Hope everyone has a great week and I'll catch up when I get back.
