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.
Now it is therapy.
The wind blowing in the corn was an extension of the wind blowing in our hair.
It blew us all the way to Omaha,
where we got out to stretch our legs.
Then we started thinking about how many more miles we had yet to drive.
Lucky for us our travelers are troopers.
A few hours into our second day we caught our first glimpse of the mountains.
