Wordless Wednesday: Driving North




PS-- My mom is feeling much stronger, and her spirits were high when we started the journey home. Thank you for your good thoughts and wishes.

  1. It's green there, not like here which is a dull brown at the moment but at least the blossom is now blooming

  2. Short stay for such a long drive! Nice images, but tell Roger to stop once in a while so you can get some shots that aren't just "on the fly" out the window. :)

  4. Bill-- It's greener than we thought it would be. I guess some of the rain we've had has really made some difference. Enjoy your spring when it arrives.

    Scott-- We were at my mom's for five days, now heading back to Arcata. I've thought about stopping for a shot, but when we're in drive mode, we just zoom zoom zoom along. It's amazing that the iPhone gets these shots at such a speed through a bug-spattered windshield.

    Sky-- Today, as I type this, the skies are cloudy and there's been some rain. Quite a surprise. Long drive home tomorrow. Hoping for clear skies on the road.

  8. Great news about your Mom. Must have been the great company.
    When I see your photos, I keep being amazed at how diverse the Ca countryside is. From beach to mountains to rolling hills to flat lands. Certainly not boring.

    Good news on your mother.

  11. Arkansas Patti-- Yes, I think it was partly the great company and her own recuperative powers. Today, she sounds sad, but healthy. California is really pretty amazing, from the ocean to the granite peaks to the desert to the hills and farmlands, it's pretty spectacular.

    Mark-- I loved that they looked like they were beckoning us on our way. The vortex called and we answered.

    NCmountainwoman-- Thank you so much.

  12. Man, you have beautiful skies! The light lay a silver carpet for your drive home. And those hills beg to walked upon and explored. But I get it about just driving through. Every minute is a mile closer to home (if you're doing 60mph). It adds up quickly.

  13. CCorax-- When we have so many miles to cover, we just go. We pack a lunch and stop at our favorite parks along the way. But it's mostly just driving pretty fast (70 mph) in our very efficient Prius. The speed limit on most of the highways is 65 mph and along one stretch it's 70! If we went 60 mph here, people would run us off the road.
