We're spending the last night of the trip in the first place we staying over a week ago - Paducah, Kentucky. If all goes well, we should be picking Mama up in Birmingham tomorrow afternoon and arriving home before dark to an excited puppy and a noncommital cat who will pout for a couple of hours and then accept us back home.
I dropped my camera when we stopped for lunch in Oregon, and it worked for a day but then gave me bad messages, so I had to drive through the most beautiful scenery without my camera. Mike had his, and he took lots of pictures, but I'm not familiar with it. Maybe we'll get a new card or whatever or maybe a new camera - but I liked my old one!
I took this while we were stopped somewhere in Illinois for a McDonald's ice cream cone. On our trip in April, we got one almost every day, but we realized today that we had not had one at all. Not counting the Baskin-Robbins Jamoca Almond that I had in Idaho - the VERY best. The weather may have had something to do with choosing coffee over ice cream.
This is the only pretty sunset we saw all trip. I was using Mike's camera and was able to zoom in enough to get rid of some telephone poles. It looks like a forest fire.
Maybe I'll get organized and get the Colorado pictures posted this weekend. That is where the word "awesome" is so appropriate.
