Drifting

No, this wasn't us... but this is the way we felt! Luckily, we have the Avalanche with us for the summer and the back of it conceals our life- in boxes.

Aaron and I drove up the western side of the country to arrive in our final destination: Tri Cities, Washington. We've been calling ourselves "Modern Day Drifters" lately because that's basically what we do... we drift.

We drove through five states: Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, and then we arrived in Washington. And you better believe I recorded all of it! The drive was absolutely beautiful... all different kinds of landscapes, but mostly mountains, and a whole lot of...

... meaning the places we drove through weren't very heavily populated. It was a scenic twenty-something hour drive and I didn't get bored once!

How about I take you on a tour of all five states? That way, you can feel as if you were there, only you don't have to ride/drive in a car for hours upon hours, eat fast food for every meal, and get burnt out on every song on the radio!

Come on let's go! Drift away with me...

Whew! Aren't you glad you could see all of that beautiful country in the comfort of your own home? I will say, it's not as beautiful in pictures as it is in person but I did my best. If you could see past the bug guts on the window, you got a taste of some beautiful country God created. I'm not showing you Washington on purpose... Most of you are probably "land-scaped out" and you will see plenty more of it this summer.

As soon as we made it to Washington we hit the ground running and we haven't stopped. I'll be showing you our pad and the area we're living in shortly. Thanks for being a "drifter" with me today!

  1. Gorgeous pictures Jill! I know exactly what you mean about the radio...when we drove out to El Paso we counted how many times we heard the same songs...ridiculous! I hope WA starts to feel a little bit like home!
