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' sk.net 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!
