From 30,000 Feet

Hey everyone! How’ve ya been?

I’m writing this post from California, where I’ve spent the past few days driving up and down CA 99, surrounded by palm trees and cows as I cover some serious ground for a work trip.

I also covered some major ground on Tuesday, when I hopped on a plane from Kansas City to Denver, then from Denver to Oakland. I usually sit in an aisle seat, but seeing as the last time I did that, someone accidentally dropped a hardcover book out of the overhead bin and onto my delicate (and well-hairsprayed) head, I decided I was probably safer tucked in by a window.

I’m also happy to report that the move let me take these pictures of the Rocky Mountains from 30,000 feet. I loved looking down and seeing little towns, rivers and snow-capped mountains from high above.

I’m headed to downtown San Francisco next and am so excited. Although I’ve briefly been there a few times for work, the last time I was in San Francisco for a couple of days in a row was when I was little. I went on vacation with my aunt, uncle and cousins, and my cousins and I spent most of the vacation trying to feed the 1,000,000+ pigeons that live in San Fran. We also spent some serious time with an Etch A Sketch in our rented mini van, so I’m looking forward to going back to San Francisco as somewhat of a grown-up.

More to come.

    Wow, these turned out so lovely. I’m glad you invested in that new camera! Call me when you get home, I want to hear about your trip and grab dinner before I head off to the big city for good!
