or is it Hawaii? I sometimes get them mixed up. ha. ha.
Road Trip–Day 2A
This little dolly is up bright and early because we are excited to get going…you see, we have found…
a real, honest to goodness farmer’s market–
with every kind of fruit and veggie that you could possibly imagine.
Hey they even had some guy roasting peppers in a big cagey thing. And I thought they did that in a frying pan.
Well, I did.
Breads, cake, jellies, jams, candy, jerky–I had no idea. Dude.
Apparently, I have never really been to a real farmer’s market.
I was totally taken in with this fancy Peanut Spread, and Blueberry Jam that you see here.
Then there was the huge loaf of Asiago Bread…and the Cinnamon Streusel. No picture. Sorry…ahhh…bears ate it all…
So after our cool little…ahhh…breakfast we realized that we needed to find a grocery store.
Let me introduce you to “Vikki” our GPS navigator. She’s brave and fearless and knows how to find absolutely everything. So we said, “Grocery Store” and she took us…
here. It’s supposed to be Safeway’s but if you look closely, you’ll see that the whole place is totally boarded up and abandoned. Perhaps we should have added, “…with people inside” to our request. Yikes.
Nevermind–we like the open adventurous road better anyway…
with all it’s trains…
Ever wonder where those fancy Angus Beef burger’s come from? Let’s not talk about that right now.
Soon we came up on what is known as Chimney Rock. They say that a hundred years ago it looked much more like a chimney than it does now but time has marched across the old girl and now it looks like a big birthday cake with one huge candle.
For the earlier pioneers–it also marked the point in their journey, where the flat, rolling plains ended and the more rugged Rocky Mountains began. To be about halfway to Utah was wonderful, but now their trek got really gritty and dangerous.
And we whine about leg room in the car. Well, that, and having to travel with crazy people.
And some of our crew couldn’t possibly care less…about any of it.
Grammie will have to save the amazing history lesson for another day.
