Adventurers would consider me a homebody. Homebodies would consider me an adventurer. I have been lucky enough to gaze on some beautiful landscapes in North America, mostly during road trips I took with my sister. (I have to add the “North” because there are two pictures of Canada in here, but most were taken in lovely, old America.) Some of my favorite spots:
Starved Rock State Park, Illinois. Not far from the suburbs of Chicago where I live, but another world.
Sullivan's Island, South Carolina
New Glasgow, Prince Edward Island, Canada. New Glasgow is a farming community in the middle of the island, with this river shimmering through it.
Red sandstone shores of northern PEI, near Cavendish
Yellowstone River, Yellowstone Nat'l Park, Wyoming--the most beautiful 3,472 square miles on Earth.
Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone
Somewhere east of Yellowstone and west of the Bighorn Mountains. Land of antelope and wild mustangs.
Near Pine Ridge, South Dakota
Arches National Park, Utah. My sister and I made a last-minute visit during a road trip to California. Turned out to be one of my favorite places in America.
Yosemite National Park, California.
And, finally, what weary traveler wouldn’t love coming home to this sight?
Next up: Road Trip IRELAND, July, 2012. But tell me, what are your favorite spots? I need to start planning for 2013…
