Despite the dead trees/brown grass there is one nice thing about off-season road trip which is the road is totally devoid of other people so I don't feel bad about driving slow and pulling over a lot. When I did a road trip up highway 1 in CA, even tho it was beautiful, I would get so anxious about the impatient drivers behind me, especially the ones that obviously wanted to blast thru but couldn't from lack of passing lanes. Also the view spots would be crowded with other tourists.
Something I saw on route 12 but couldn't take a pic since I was driving and no place to pull over. So I tried drawing it from memory. Small sections of the valley that the sun never touched had icicles forming.
Ok one more drive thru the california mountain area and then im heading home.
Apparently it's gonna snow on Wednesday, would like to see it but my desire to explore pokemon nature is eclipsing my desire to explore real nature
Anyo, real nature hasn't given me any opportunities to take down an evil mob org and save the world
One thing that's very novel to me as a city rat is when I'm driving down the freeways in the desert, it's so vast and open, it really gives a unique sense of space and how large the area is. I think photos don't capture that feeling at all. And It's not the same as driving through a forest (tree hallway) or a city (i already have enough of that!).
One more pic of stuff I saw on my road trip but couldn't stop to take a photo.
I tried looking up the approximate area i was in, I think it's at the truckee river outside of reno
@cantinto I don't need this much space tho!! 😂 My minimalist road trip is no more.
@cantinto :O I've been on plenty of minimalist road trips! I'm no prissy glamper! Just need a car with seats that fold down, a sleeping bag, a few extra clothes and a gym membership!
@alexlaw thanks for taking us along 😊
@alexlaw these are so crisp and paint such a mood/moment 😍
@alexlaw When I sit in a car for a long time, and I'm done singing (screaming) along with the songs from my phone, and I'm done sitting in silence, I'll start talking out loud to myself (or the imaginary rubber duck, whatever) about ideas and thoughts, and solutions to problems, and it can actually be a really good experience. Sometimes trying to explain something to your car, will make you see new sides of it, or realise why your thought process has been flawed.
@bamfic It's actually AnytimeFitness, but yeah basically walmart camping with the added benefit of being able to piss, shower and use wifi at 2am lol.
The pictures were beautiful. Glad you had a good time and that you made it home safely.
