So, it's been a while since I was in civilization.
I've left Chicago westbound, passing through vast cornfields they call 'states' here.
Vast Plains of Nothingness:

If you build it, they will come.

Also saw soem stupid Bridges in Madison county. I have pictures, but I don't want to waste anybody's bandwidth on crap.

I stopped by Frank Lloyd Wright's ol' neighbourhood, as well as one of the 19 'complete' houses he did. 'Complete' meaning he chose the furniture, the decorations, everything. He was quite a megalomaniac. Ho hum, geniuses occasionally are.
I also stopped by Des Moines to say 'ello' to an ol' pal :)

So now I'm in Colorado. I was in Denver, and now I've headed off to the Rockies.
This place is so beautiful. How can I describe it?
Massive mountains, painted green with pine trees, and the occasional brilliant yellow aspens make for a beautiful contrast. the skies are baby blue, the weather fine, and rivers n' lakes decorate the mountainsides, which are otherwise painted brown-red.

But as they say, a picture speaks a thousand words..:

Amazing, isn't it?

So... We've been to Vail, been to Aspen, and I suppose we're headin' up to SLC now :]

Hopefully, I won't turn into a Mormon :O

Miss you guys!

This is a beautiful landscape. Maybe it's time you up and took a trip yourself :o)
Afterall, this isn't my backyard, I'm not a citizen, I don't earn in US dollars.. So if I can do it, so can you :]

Lila - Aww yeah, don't worry, I'm not missing Yosemite. I've actually seen them before, and I remember how astonishing a sight they are.
