Day Three!

Did I hear you right?

Two more days of the car?!

Oh My!

After the shock of telling Hedi how much longer we had to go...

We introduced her to some of the locals....

So cute but kinda scary.

I could hear my Mom saying..

Don't touch! I'm sure they have a disease!

Prairie dogs love cheeze nips :)

Hello Colorado

We could not get over the beautiful colors in this state.

Then there was Utah.

I can't begin to tell you....

so pretty.

Can you see Maddy below?

This arch was HUGE!

It was on a hike here that I knew...

I am out.of.shape.

I could not stop wondering how close the nearest med. center was...really.

Heidi was still not convinced that we have two more days in the car.

So I showed her the map.

I think she gets it now.

Puppy treats may have helped...

So Maddy has had her dessert and swim for the night.

I'm going to say good night and try to wash about 500 miles off....

Early to we come!



  1. Hi Susie, You just drove past me. Isn't Utah amazing? Have a safe trip.

  2. Susie, "hi" to you from Colorado!! It is so beautiful here! :). I love Utah as well. Are you traveling along the Columbia River Gorge? It is a must see! If you are and going to Orgeon make sure to stop and see Multnomah Falls...amazing!! Fun to be along on your road trip! Be safe and have fun!


  3. Wow. What a road trip. I live in the panhandle of TX. Route 66 goes through my town. I don't think you took that path while you were in Texas. I am enjoying seeing all of your travel photos.

  4. Beautiful, just beautiful! I have wanted to travel out that way forever.

  5. You sure are putting on the mileage!!
    Your dog is so full of ezpression here! lol
    Makes e giggle!
    The sights are gorgeous and Im sure the memories you're making are too!
    Hapy travels!

  6. I'm originally from Colorado and have lived in Utah for the past 20 years. So glad you loved my states!!

    I love your blog. Makes me want to be a southern belle like you!

  7. I LOVE this... I want to be there with you - looks so amazing. I will have to do this myself one day... Thanks for sharing.

  8. You've got me itching for a road trip now. What fun!!! Seems a chat with my husband may be in order. I'm praying you keep having a great time, safe travels and bring that sunshine with you to Washington... Please, please, please.

  9. How fun! So I wasn't planning on going to the Farm Chicks thing... maybe I will. Are you guys planning on going Downtown Seattle? I would love to take you guys through the infamous Pikes Place Market... the ORIGINAL Starbucks?!?!... maybe walk the water front shops?
    You can email me and I'll give you my number. No matter what, I want to meet you! I need your autograph! :)

  10. Hello, I have been reading your blog for about a year now.. Love it... It looks to me like you took the picture of the windmills at the opening of Spanish fork Canyon in Utah.. That is just about 7 miles from my house... :O)
    Have a safe trip...

  11. Susie,

    I am enjoying your drive. Your photographs are breathtaking. It truly is America the Beautiful. Your dog is adorable. (I think Scout is in love!) Stay safe, my friend.


  12. I hear ya about the out of shape, that would be a hard hike for anyone! Love, love the pictures, wow do we live in a beautiful state or what? Drive carefully.

  13. I'm curious to see what you post about Idaho. :)
    If you're going past Twin Falls, the canyon and Shoshone Falls are definitely worth the stops!


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
