Goin’ places that I’ve never been. Seein’ things that I may never see again. And I can’t wait to get on the road again. – Willie Nelson
|On the road near Pendleton, Oregon|
Whenever I go on a road trip, that old song by Willie Nelson always pops in my head. I love nothing more than hitting the open road, with no particular destination in mind. The chances to do such trips seem to be rarer and rarer, with all the demands of work and family. It had been almost a month since I had touched my camera, and to be honest, to say I was going stir crazy would be a huge understatement.
With the both my husband and I having a rare Friday off together, we grabbed the kids, the dog and jumped in a rental RV to spend three days exploring the “wilds” of Eastern Oregon. We visited a few places we had been before, and others that were new to all of our eyes.
