We captured the photo above on November 9, 2012 while on our way to Richfield, Utah from Rock Springs, Wyoming. We were on a lonely highway and just pulled off to the side of the road to take it. Up until that point we hadn’t encountered too much cold, but in Utah that all changed. We even experienced a blizzard in Provo. I don’t remember if this photo was from before or after Provo, but I like how it’s almost monochromatic. The gate and fence add to the bleakness and coldness of the scene.
Next up, we have a photo of the Pacific Ocean, taken four days later while heading home on the Pacific Coast Highway. It was the last day of our 2-week long road trip, and it was also the last day of our nearly 3-month adventure around the globe. We drove many hours on the PCH with the Pacific Ocean as our constant companion, reminding us that the Earth is so big, and we are so small.
