We would have been good with a smaller truck but we wanted to go with Diesel because they get better gas mileage with that amount of weight. We weighed in at 11,??? lbs. That is what one of the many weigh stations we had to stop at said. Samson is trying to get comfortable. For the first two hours of the trip he sat on the bench seat with us. After the first rest stop he was forced to find comfort on the floor.
So, the land between Georgia and Missouri pretty much looks the same. I did not take pictures until we got to where things looked different from what I am use to. After Kansas City, MO the landscape changed to rolling farmland. The hills were small but plentiful. This is also true for Iowa. There is a lot of corn being grown in this area of the country. One thing that I noticed on billboards and on NPR (national public radio) is that Bio Diesel is huge. The pictures don't give you the best view of the corn fields but they are all I could do in a moving truck.
The sunrise in SD was beautiful. The pictures below are taken looking west. In the east you had blue/yellow/brown, in the west you had light blue/white/pink/blue/brown(land). The picture does not capture the true beauty of the colors.
Columbia River and Mt. Rainer (lower right). Mt. Rainer is actually about 70 miles away in this picture.
So, after that we hit Seattle and I had to put down the Camera and navigate. I forgot to take pictures of the area leading up to Bellingham. Mainly because I was excited to almost be there. Hopefully soon, I will go out and about to take pictures of the local scenery.
So that is a brief recap of our trip. I have more to talk about but it has been a long day and I am ready to hit the hay.
