Departure days always end up sending me down road trip rabbit holes as I try to pack. The places I've gone. The things I've seen.
Storms as they pass.
|The Tetons - August 2005|
And old cities.
|Bath, England - February 2009|
|Moscow - July 2005|
And a bucket list item or two.
|The Great Wall - March 2010|
|Powell's City of Books - September 2013|
|Somewhere in Colorado - May 2010|
|I-90 in the middle of South Dakota. Could have been taken on a lot of different days.|

|Sunrise near Humboldt, SD - July 2012 (I think)|
|Oregon coastline - September 2013|
|Near Moab, Utah - September 2013|

Big freaking waterfalls.
|Niagara Falls - September 2014|
Mountains, of various shapes and sizes.
|Harney Peak - September 2014|
|Mount Saint Helens - September 2013|
And some weirder stuff. Yes, that's a zebra.
|I-35 south of Minneapolis - May 2009|
But there are the other things, too. The food.
|Seoul - November 2011|
The opportunities to relax.
|London - February 2009|
|Dad and I on a bus in Seoul - December 2013|
And some of the coolest experiences.
|Cedar Point Halloweekends - September 2014|
|This has been in space! Kennedy Space Center - January 2015|
|Let's not talk about this one.|
|Flying a kite with my brother in Denver on Christmas Eve - 2013|
Sometimes it has taken serious effort, time off, and occasionally money (although I'm pretty good at going and doing without much cash). Some of these trips required multiple flights and all sorts of jet lag. Some involved long drives.
And some of it was in my very own backyard, wherever that happened to be at the time.
Adventure can be wherever you choose to find it. This week? This week I choose to go south.
... As soon as I'm done packing, that is.
