The last two days have been steady driving across half each of Colorado and Indiana, and all of Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois. These finals days bring the total trip mileage to 6,633 miles, or more than twice across the continental United States, and the total hours of driving to ~131.
It was one hell of a whirlwind of a sampler platter of the Western United States. But now I know what I want to see again and in more depth. Highlights include:
- the drive from Kayenta, AZ, to Bryce Canyon
- the drive from Leadville, CO, to Aspen the back way past Twin Lakes
- Rocky Mountain National Park
- Lake City, CO
I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I sure enjoyed taking them and think I did pretty good job considering that at least 80% of them were taken from a moving vehicle. I guess that is what happens when you travel for two weeks (plus 6 hours) and of the 342 hours in those weeks, 131 were spent driving.
Now back to our more regularly scheduled programming: grad school.
