I decided to document our cross-country drive on Tumblr so I could easily post from my phone and am just now taking the time to upload the DC to Denver adventure to WordPress. Denver is so beautiful I have been spending every free moment in the mountains rather than at my desk…
Pictured above, left to right, are Lori-Ann & Ruca, Me, Hannah, and Melissa on the stoop of what we called “The Elm Street Lounge” near Howard University in Washington, DC. Melissa and Lori-Ann moved to San Francisco at the same time that Geoff and I left for Denver. Melissa has already been to Denver to visit us!
My room all packed up and ready for Transit Systems.
Me, Riley, and Geoff beginning our adventure out west.
First stop: Kentucky! DC to Kentucky was about 8 hours, so we went there first to spend a couple nights with Richard and my aunt Boo at their place pictured below.
See why I’ve been speechless? The pictures say it all.
Geoff, Riley and me looking like a happier version of American Gothic by Grant Wood.
Geoff and me at the Kentucky Horse Park…
Where there was a dog show and I fawned over this Bernese Mountain Dog.
Later we had our own dog show with Riley and Twiggy. What’s better than a floating dog bed?
After a relaxing stay at Boo & Richard’s we got back on the road to travel from Kentucky to Kansas, a 12 hour stretch. Pictures above and below were taken in Indiana.
Heading through St. Louis!
I decided it was mandatory to stop at the Kansas City Library, which is built to look like it’s made of books. See Geoff with The Lord of the Rings and me with Journals of the Expedition By Lewis and Clark.
St. Louis and Kansas City.
Made it to Kansas!
Then there was a lot of this…
Until Riley decided it was time to stop.
And we stayed here.
Last day on the road! Here is the Windmill Farm in Kansas along I-70.
Upon arriving in Colorado we tried to visit the Wonder Tower in Genoa, but it was closed 😦
Thrilled when we finally made it and got this shot on the balcony of our new place!
Our view– worth the move.
