Road Trip Part 1

Hello Everyone and Good morning! I'm finally back and feeling rested after our road trip. I had so much fun and I'm so excited to share all of it with you all! When we left Minnesota we headed into Iowa, then down to Missouri and into Kansas. I didn't get much pictures of this cause it's alot of cornfields and not very interesting scenes through there. Also I lived in Kansas and have seen all those states alot. Once we started getting into the new states for me I went camera crazy. I was able to add 3 new states to my States visited list which brings me up to 32.

One thing we saw through all the southern states was these massive wind turbines. We have only a few in Minnesota due to all our trees they would never work well here. But in the south on the flat plains and desert they were everywhere.

I also finally got to see Texas Longhorn actually in texas. It was amazing! They really are huge!

I'm no stranger to buffalo. We saw alot of them when we lived in Idaho. Seeing this mama and calf made me miss Idaho and living there alot.

The other thing you notice right away when entering into Texas or New Mexico, is the color of their soil. It's a real rich red color. I had never seen anything like it in my life.

My first cactus. Even though these are not the ones I was excited to see (those come later) these are still the first cactus I have seen in real life in the wild.

Tommorrow I will pick up with the painted desert and petrified forest in Arizona.
