Sharing A Road Trip

Thursday My Hubby and I had to make a road trip to Anchorage, which is 145 miles one way from home. He needed parts for his tools for work and can't get them around here. So he had to make a parts run. I didn't have to go but wanted to get away and also wanted a lunch out of the deal. So I though I would share a bit of our trip with you.


This was the only place I could get him to stop along the way. This is me, with shades on since the sun was shining in my face...........LOL

This sign is a little hard to read but it says Avalanche Area Next 2 miles Do Not stop. Well who reads anyway.............LOL
The rest of these pictures are out the car window going anywhere from 55 to 65 depending on the speed limit at the time.

Every inch of this drive was so beautiful. I couldn't take pictures fast enough, or was it that we were going to fast to get good shots.


This picture here is all that's left of a house and truck, it got sucked up in the 1964 earthquake!



Mountains surround the whole drive and I am always in complete awe every time we go.




Life is a highway and that we were on yesterday!

I would love to look out my window and see that! Living in the desert, we kinda do, but that just seems so more majestic! Beautiful shots!
