- Find something completely meaningless
- Write about it at great length
This is typically the pattern because, simply put, there usually isn't much of note going on in life to write about. But with this trip, there actually are lots of legitimate to write about, so it's hard to choose where to begin!
The drivel is compromised! Sound ze alarms!
The route of the trip was as follows:
Columbus to Kansas City (actually a suburb called Overland Park); Kansas City to Frisco, Colorado (west side of Denver); Frisco to Arches National Park; Arches National Park to Bryce Canyon National Park; Bryce Canyon National Park to Las Vegas (aka Hell); Las Vegas/Hell to (woo hoo!) Irvine, California.
While I love to hear myself talk, and then write what I've said, and then read the words I've written (several times!), there's a saying that goes like this: A picture is worth a thousand words. I think this conversion may be a bit inaccurate, and place it at a number more like 943, but, you know, rounding... Anyway, the point is, Divya and I took like, almost 500 pictures, and I have a strong aversion to carpal tunnel, so let's get to some pictures rather than going too heavy on the text, shall we?
Part I: Columbus to Kansas City
|If you've never seen the Arch yourself, this picture gives you some idea of the scale. It is largo.|
|Another popular activity at the Arch is taking pictures of the same person going around to different sides of the Arch, continuing to try for that perfect shot that makes it look like they are holding up the Arch.|
|Korma Sutra delivers. They'll deliver to your party, they'll cater your event, and they will give you a shower. This is my own play on words. It is humorous.|
Let us continue...
Part II: Kansas City to Frisco
Actually, we didn't have dinner at A&W. I just wanted to work this picture in somehow. What happens when capitalism and faith collide? Well, you probably end up with a sign advertising both Psalm 112 and Chix for $1.99. Awesome.
