Roadtrip to Chicago, Day Three

After breakfast at Dixie Quicks in Omaha (who knew Omaha was so hip and edgy? Great food and an art gallery attached?  I'm impressed) we drove for several repetitive but beautiful hours of lush green farmland. Tons of windmills and old dilapidated barns dotting the landscape.  Finally hit some traffic on the way into the city, but not too bad for a Sunday.  Arrived in Chicago in the evening at last... ready to start settling in and getting organized.  I guess I will need to get a job soon!  I'll worry about that another day.  For now, just happy to be a resident of Chicago.

Roadtrip to Chicago, Day Two

Day two involved miles of driving through the lovely flat green plains of eastern Colorado and western Nebraska.  After lunch at the famous Jack 'N Grill in Denver (I had a burger the size of my head) and a trip to Gelazzi after, we hit the road for several more hours in the rain.  The photo above is the sunset in Kearney NE, reflected in the wet ground below.  We spent the night in York, NE, thankful for only one more day of driving to Chicago!

Road trip to Chicago... Day One

Day one of the roadtrip!  Left the house in the Valley behind for the last time, and it was bittersweet.  Packed up the car (to the gills) and set out on the road at 7am.  Stopped for yummy brunch at the Coffee Cup Cafe in Boulder City Nevada (thanks, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!)  I had the coconut waffles and VC had the pork chile verde omelet and well-done home fries.  Delicious!  We then went through beautiful Zion Nat'l Park, and the extra $25 for park entrance was well worth it.  Amazing views throughout as the surrealistic craggy landscape kept changing hues from reddish-bronze, to taupe, to sage green, and back again... depending on your elevation. After a long day of driving, we've landed in Grand Junction Colorado for the night.
