on january 6th, me, my friend ashlee, and my tiny car drove across the country to the great city of seattle. what an experience!
it was probably not the smartest decision to drive through many mountains in the middle of winter. we faced a few snow storms, a few rain showers, a patch of ice that so lovingly led my car into a collision with the curb. oh! and a steep, mountain driveway covered in ice that my tiny car could not make up. despite all of the stuff that went wrong on the trip, it was one of the best experiences of my life.
i never realized how big the country was. 3 straight days of driving. sometimes it was hours and hours before we saw civilization. but wow, this country is dang beautiful. i don’t think i will ever get over how amazing mountains are. i think i took a billion photos in the car while we were driving through them.
anyway, it was such a great trip filled with brilliant landscapes, friends i haven’t seen in way too long, a day trip to portland, typical touristy seattle stuff, and so many great memories.
p.s. how funny does my tiny car look next to those huge semis?
