road trip, with a history lesson

On this day, we drove about 11 hours or so through northern California, all the way up Oregon, into Washington. The southern Oregon part was the worst, since it was dark, the roads were curvy, and it was rainy. Only time it rained on us the whole trip. It was a long day of driving, but now I just remember all the laughing.

Northern California is gorgeous. Love me some mountains and trees.nocali6 nocali9 nocali7

We kept joking about how disgusting it was outside. Just really awful to look at.nocali8

History lesson number one: The guy says that this is the mountain where all bald eagles are born. And of course, the only cloud in the sky is covering the mountain at the same time that we get to the viewpoint.nocali12 nocali13

History lesson number two: This is the mountain where all vultures are born. Because it is dark and sinister looking.nocali3 nocali2

When we tell people about our trip, they always ask what we did to pass the time. Well, we talked to each other. Commented about the scenery. We sang along to road trip music. We just genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Makes me want to go on another road trip right now!nocali1
