On the Road Pt 2: Changing Scenery9:17 AM
Driving across the country is an awesome experience, albeit strenuous. Actually sitting and wrestling the RV for hours on end can be incredibly tiring and almost headache-inducing.
However, if you power through and settle into the drive, you get to see some really great sites. It's fascinating to watch the miles tick on by. First you're 300 miles from your destination and then suddenly, there you are! It seems like forever and instantaneous all at the same time.
Mostly pictures in this post, interspersed with some notes from the road...

|The wind was certainly sweepin' down the plain!|
|Texas! Whole lotta nuthin'|

Winter across the country comes in many forms. As we would change elevation, we would see little bits of snow flecking the mountains or hills we were driving through. Then we would descend towards a lower elevation and watch as strong winds and warmer weather melted the snow and turned it into rain.

It's a great exercise in broadening one's scope and perspective. To see the world as the ever-changing, always-adapting and ever-new place that it is.
