Car Perspective.

If there is anything that we have realized from driving from Washington, to Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Montana...
Is that we love the Northwest.

The snow in Yellowstone was beautiful, and the family and friends in Idaho and Utah were awesome....

But nothing compares to the greenery, the trees, and the beauty of our backyard right here in the Northwest. We were so excited to finally get back home.

Here is a little glimpse of our roadtrip from our perspective sitting in the front seat of our car.



(Thanks Kristi for the 2 pictures above)

We are now starting to head over the Cascade Mountains, afterwhich will land us back into Seattle.



Ahhh....




Our tiny town...

I totally "hear you" about the drive between here and Salt Lake City. There's absolutly nothing to look at until you hit the Blue Mountains between Pendleton and Baker.

Glad your home safe and sound.

I am so sad that you didn't stop in the Tri-cities I would have loved to see you.

Talk about some breathtaking scenery.
Were the roads bad? You all did a lot of driving. :)

Welcome home it looks so nice to see the places that I have been too. I miss them all so much. But I agree about the green and the trees. It will always be my favorite part of Washington.

I LOVE the Northwest and would move there in a second. I dream of living in a little bungalo cottage near the ocean and close to berry bushes and mountain hiking. Now if I could only talk my husband into leaving what he calls "ZION."

What a long drive! I have to admit that while I grew up with the green trees I don't miss them as much. I love, love the wide open spaces and clear views. Whenever we visit Seattle it is always a relief to go back home where I can see mile after beautiful mile. There is something to be said about wide open spaces and no place like home. Whether one one side of the state or another! :) N

WooHoo! I have a fan! I have at least one fan! Who cares that he's only 6 months old. I have a fan!!!

I'm glad you guys made it back safe and sound. What a BUNCH of driving though! Preston seems to have done remarkably well, seriously.
