“Tourists don’t know
where they’ve been…
Travelers don’t know
where they’re going.”
I like to try and live my life as a traveler.
Most of the time, I don’t really have a choice.
At best, I have very loose scheduling skills.
My road trip to Richmond, Virginia was no different.
I had a starting point and a destination, but the middle was up to wherever the road took me.
In 2 days, I drove through Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia.
It is a beautiful country.
It was a beautiful ride.
The world’s largest catsup bottle–everything I’d dreamed it would be.
I stopped for a cheeseburger at this tiny diner in Frankfort, KY.
I made a last minute decision to take the highway for part of the trip to see more sights. I came across the most amazing waterfalls, old buildings, and gorgeous river views. Also, I inadvertently ended up on top of a mountain, which FYI, was not something that shows up on google maps.
A couple HDR photos of the New River Gorge Bridge.
The reason this post has taken me so long to put up is because I had no idea how to explain it.
The things I saw and the experience that I had were too big for words.
To say it was beautiful would be the best that I could do–and that really isn’t doing anything justice.
I’d like to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes for a safe drive and an inspirational Engaged Encounter weekend.
Micah and I had an enlightening experience as we prepared for our life as a married couple.
I couldn’t have dreamed of a better outcome.
