We’re traveling so I can’t guarantee anything. I might post per usual, I might post daily, I might decide to shake off the shackles of ordinary life and join a commune.
You just never know.
Our destination? Portland!
We’ll stay five days there, then on to Napa Valley for a few more days. I’ve never been to either, so if any of you have recommendations or suggestions, leave them in the comments. 🙂
But first, where we’ve been so far…
Stopped at Hoover Dam for a bathroom break. Sorry for the blurry photo. I had a lot on my mind.
Where we ate lunch in Utah — only this isn’t the picture I wanted. What I really wanted was a shot of a billboard we spotted in Provo for a religious group called The Truth. It had the iconic evolution symbol of ape to man, with a line through it. I had my caption all thought out for the picture: “Please join me in a moment of silence for all science teachers in Provo, Utah.” Yeah. It would’ve been great.
Just after we got into Idaho, we got stuck in construction. But just to the side of the road was this idyllic farm, which I instantly fell in love with and now want to be adopted by the family. Under that big tree in front of the house are sheep, lying in the shade. To the right of them there’s a garden, and I’m willing to bet it includes herbs. Because it just would, wouldn’t it? In the back of the house, in a small field, were two ponies. Ponies, people! They had ponies!
Tomorrow we stay in Pendleton, Oregon, then on to Portland! I’ll tell you about it later.
Unless my adoption papers go through and I get a pony.
