Well, it's been sweet being at home, but it's time to hop in the car, and head back to Florida. I'll be there until September. Most likely.

I've had a few folks ask me why I bother to drive, when I could fly for as much money. In case you're one who's wondering this, here's why:

1. No car when I get to my destination. I need a ride, otherwise I'm of no benefit to anyone.
2. If I fly, I knock down my chances of meeting bloggers... something I'm loving.
3. Click on the extended entry...

When you fly, you can only SEE this scenery... you can't BE a part of it...

These are some pics from trips out west. (You can click to enlarge) I was on the bike at the timeā€¦ the way Iā€™d prefer to travel. The mountain pic is from Glacier in Montana, and the pond is from a backroad in Wyoming. The picture below is from a spot on I-75, not far from the Tennessee/Kentucky border. Funny thing... I took this pic, and a couple of others, and two days later, Tuck from Thought Drizzle posted an excellent pic that he had taken from the very same area, but earlier in the morning. This was the view that I was describing when I wrote Heaven.

Well, trying to describe. As nice as these pics may seem, they just can't come near to showing you how it actually is. You have to be there to be it... feel it.

You just can't get that when you're riding the metal birds through the heavens...

Sometimes Driving does have it's advantages. However, with this heat and your Car not having any AC... I don't know if it's worth it.

Just curious - is the Wyoming picture anywhere near Wind River Canyon (a bit south of Thermopolis)?? Or, I must admit - it looks a bit like you're near the Pryor Mountains there. Hmmmm.... Could be Clarksfork - somewhere around Cody too... Makes me homesick...

Beautiful picture none the less. : )
