If you ever have the chance to road trip across Nevada and Southern California, do it.
Those orange and brown and beautiful mountains and plains surrounding the roads the entire way through are tremendous and awe-inspiring.
This photo was from a brief time that the mountains surrounded us at a distance… the rest of the time, we were in their midst, going up and down a thousand or so feet every few minutes (not elaborating on that either, because there were somewhat regular signs showing the altitude).
It was meditative in and of itself, it was just so yes for life.
I feel like I need to check of an amazing box on my to-do life experiences list, but I never even knew it was a box to have in the first place! 😛
And I might have already said all of this, but it was worth sharing again, because I can’t get over how beautiful it was… even on the airport tram (and unnecessary and unhelpful trip) today during my layover in Vegas, the surrounding mountains were breathtaking and made me want to figure out when I would be back (even though I don’t really care about the regular Vegas attractions).
