~As the song goes “On the Road Again”~

This morning we left Loveland, Colorado, destination Oregon! 

It is fun to be back on the road again, but oh so soon after just arriving back home! Oh well – life is calling!

We have been planning a westward trip for several summers and finally, this summer, we are heading west. It has been several years since we were on the Oregon Coast and we are looking forward to our visit.

After we leave the Coast we are heading to Glacier!

We have never been there, so this trip will be extra special!

Today we travelled scenic Colorado Highway 287 from Fort Collins, CO to I-80.

It was a gorgeous day. Breathtaking backdrops for our leisurely drive today, were the spectacular Rocky Mountains. Deep, blue skies with white puffy clouds provided striking contrasts.

With all the spring rain, the country side is filled with lush greenery as far as the eye can see.

Here and there, white and rusty colored bodies could be seen grazing on the bountiful grasses. Grouping of Antelope, some with new borns, provided a little entertainment.

Our only complaint was the wind.

Once we hit Wyoming and turned west, on I-80, we encountered strong wind with gust up to 40 miles per hour. Not fun!

After spending a lot of time getting things ready to leave, I am now back to blogging!  I intend to stop by some of my favorite blogs, visit new ones, contribute with photos on those I enjoy and plan to post a few about our travels west.

 

Hopefully, I will be making music with my friends and will have beautiful things to write about and take photos of.

On the road again
written and recorded by Willie Nelson

On the road again just can’t wait to get on the road again

The life I love is making music with my friends

And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the road again like a band of gypsies we go down highway

We’re the best of friends insisting that the world keep turning our way

And our way is on the road again just can’t wait to get on the road again

The life I love is making music with my friends

And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the road again goin’ places that I’ve never been

Seein’ things that I may never see again

And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the road again like a band of gypsies we go down highway

We’re the best of friends insisting that the world keep turning our way

And our way is on the road again just can’t wait to get on the road again

The life I love is making music with my friends

And I can’t wait to get on the road again

    1. Anne Marie, good morning to you. We won’t be going as far north, this trip, but will plan a trip into Washington to come see you. Hoping you are enjoying your summer!! Love and hugs.

  4. You are travelling through some beautiful country. We visited Glacier in 2008. Only difference is we only travel ‘blue highways’ and avoid interstates. Have a great trip and safe travels.
