Where are your favorite places to take a drive? (No matter if you’re a driver or a passenger.)
I love long road trips, especially when I’m not too pressed for time. Anyone who’s driven across the United States before will know that driving across some states is better than driving across other states.
My favorites? Georgia, Rhode Island, Southern Utah, Northern Arizona, Iowa and the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Beautiful scenery is, of course, the number one reason but these help as well: good roads, ease of finding necessities like food and gas and interesting things to see or do along the way.
Least favorites? New Mexico, Pennsylvania (just because of I-80), Wyoming (not including Yellowstone) and, seemingly most everyone’s least favorite, Nebraska. Number one reasons: boring scenery, bad roads, no handy gas stations or food places.
To be fair there are seven states that I haven’t had the pleasure to drive through: North Dakota, Michigan, Kentucky, Alaska, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine—maybe one of these days. I must visit them all sometime before I die.
Anyway, I had that on my mind and now, flowers! These were taken right here in good ol’ Orlando in various places where wildflowers grow.
The white flowers seem to be Hemlock although I’m not quite certain. The leaves were kinda throwing me off. The yellow flowers are primrose willow.
My moods have been a little better the last day or so. Maybe because I’m getting ready to take a long road trip next week. Perhaps being too stationary isn’t a good thing for me. Will see.
Hope everyone is doing well!
