New Mexico, the trip to: Day 1 8/31/2010

We started out Tuesday morning bright and early.  Rather than hit the freeway David mapped out a more scenic route and it couldn't have been better. 
I won't bore you with all the details, but here are some pictures that pretty much sum up the drive.

We started by going through Logan canyon to Bear Lake.  A beautiful way to start a trip!

Even Wyoming has it's pretty spots. Actually it has quite a few, we just weren't anticipating any on this trip.

Forgive the hair and overall "ickiness" to my look. We got up at 5 and left at 6...ish. Gotta have a road photo though.

Driving by Flaming Gorge we came across this bridge and I loved the way the yellow of the flowers stands out against the rust color of the bridge.

We got a new camera and I LOVE what I can do with it!

Seriously love this guy! He is just so dang much fun!

Finally hit I70 for a full 105 miles of the trip.  We did highways the rest of the way. Little traffic, more relaxed. Loved it.  This is the tunnel going through parts of the mountain.

This just reminded me of the Incredibles.  I kept on expecting to see Elastigirl swing up and over.

This was along the highway in Southern Colorado, oh so close to the New Mexico border.  The sun was hitting everything just right and it looked like a golden highway.  Beautiful.
Close of day 1.  I would have taken more pictures to take you into NM with us, but.. it was dark.  The end.
