Our Incredible Journey: day 1

We started our journey, 300 miles down, 5700 to go. I planned to be productive on this part of the journey. My plan was delayed by a day spent oohing and awing the gorgeous scenery. I have seen it all before, but the hills, followed by high, then low desert is too appealing to pass up.  Did I mentions the desert sunset? Describing the colors is impossible. It is something that must be experienced, not described.
I enjoy the time with the kiddos and Kyle, I also love the feeling of driving on an empty, winding road.
We pulled off on the most deserted road we could find, turned off all the lights and looked up at the sky. Wow!  No lights for miles, except the stars. No moon, just stars.
I spent the better part of ten minutes trying to get a picture of the night sky, but was unsuccessful.  I gave up and decided to just enjoy the moment with my family. I am glad I made that decision.   I felt small and surrounded by love. I highly recommend the experience to everyone. Make the time, you won’t regret it.
