We picked a beautiful morning to head off on this year's vacation adventure.

The view out the window was beautiful Iowa farmland.  
Not so many years ago, its beauty would have been completely lost on me.

Then we started thinking about how many more miles we had yet to drive.

Lucky for us our travelers are troopers.

Your journey looks divine. I could totally go for an expresso and a puppy this morning.
