I wanted to share some of the things I saw--from nifty bridges and buildings to breathtaking landscapes--with everyone.
Here's to a mini road trip without the drive!!
|Beautiful mountain landscape|
|How the world should be--GREEN|
|So. Southern. :)|
|Blue skies, smiling at me...well, most of the time.|
|Is this not one of the coolest buildings you've ever seen??! |
I thought it was pretty snazzy for a medical center...
|If I could paint...or draw...or even sculpt...this would be on my to-do list.|
|I know this one! Kentucky!! Where the corn grows...|
Anyway, this one took me by surprise; I was reading--devouring--Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld when Chris nudged me and said, "Look, here's another bridge with flags! Take a picture!"
So I get my phone and try to ready the camera before we pass the bridge. This is nearly a feat in itself as we aren't very far away from the bridge to begin with, and we're going around ~70 mph. But I get the camera, and I get ready to take my one shot...and end up capturing the car instead! FAIL. Just fail.
|The other side of the bridge I missed from far away ^_^|
|This would make a lovely painting--even with the telephone pole|
|This could almost be Ireland, right? Almost.|
|What the road looked like 3 hours later....6 hours later....and 10 hours later x_x|
|Beginning of night--the backdrop was incredible|
|Do you see the moon?! |
We stopped at a rest area and the moon was glowing in the middle of the pale marmalade sky.
|The Misty Mountains: USA style|
|Huge river. Very picturesque|
|Just around the river bend...there was more water...to no one's surprise|
|Moon...light! (I have played Legend of Dragoon way too much.)|
|Another small river meandering through the mountains|
|Aside from the flyer, this picture looks like something straight out of a fantasy novel|
|This was also taken at the rest area...I figured it'd be nice to spread out the glory of it|
|Sunset in the clouds|
|Before the rain...|
|Wildflowers! Ironically, they surrounded the area near the toll booths...|
|PA--not while driving. It was too pretty to miss!|
|Sunset through the window|
|Corn--for miles and miles and more miles|
|...And more miles...|
|Loving the patriotism :)|
|I like the fact that I can stare at the sun when it's in pictures...because it's always tempting outside of them and never a good idea. |
I hope you enjoyed the trip ;)!
My next post will be about Kristen Cashore and her Graceling series--Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue.
