The trip was marvelous. Route 80 was so scenic, I had not traveled it since we left Pennsylvania and seeing it again almost brought tears to my eyes! But I will not ramble too much, instead I will allow you to enjoy the beautiful work of Darcy, who captured the journey for me.
|The sky was clear as we set out|
|Can't go without something to browse at.... what better than MaryJane's books?? :)|
|Can you imagine leaving my perfume at HOME??? *shudders*|
|Mama sipping an ice coffee. Yum...|
|Right as we got on the highway, what did I see..... a RED PETERBILT!!!! My favorite!|
|A stop at the DQ made everyone happy after we had been riding for a while. (He's trying to be silly, by the way. He doesn't really smile like that. :)|
|Calling for directions...|
|At last! We drive over the border.... now the adventure really begins.... :)|
|We stopped in Hermitage PA where my grandmother lives for the night.|
|Found these in Grandma's attic..... *swoon*|
|I. Want. These. Shoes.|
|They were only just a HAIR too small! I ALMOST fit into them, but I didn't quite make it.|
|On the road again the next morning....|
|The Alleghenies! Up ahead! It's them! Oh I haven't seen them in SOOOO LONG!!!!|
|It's them...... *sigh*.......|
|One thing I remember about Pennsylvania was the smell of the fir forests. Sorry, there's just no smell like that anywhere else.|
|Mom was quietly reading while I was wildly jumping all over the car to get shots out of every window....|
|No caption for this one. Words can't describe it. And the picture does it only about 10% justice.|
That was part one for ya. More pictures soon!
Oh, and by the way, notice my new design? What do you think?
