Makes Me Want To Take A Back Road!

This past Saturday Hubs and I travelled out to Julian, CA! The thing I love about living here is you can go from the beach, to the mountains, to the desert all in one day, and all in one county! The journey for us was about an hour and the scenery along the way was breath-taking! We passed through two or three Indian reservations and were out in the mountains in no time. We saw the change in topography from palm trees, to dry sandy rocks, to evergreen trees! Along the route we had to stop to take in some of the beauty that is California!


A beautiful view!

As bloggers, most of you stop to take pictures of strange things, what you eat, what you wear, and like this, beautiful scenes. I photo document everything. Hubs just doesn’t get it, still! When I ask him to get out of the car for a quick picture, this is what I get:

He will learn one of these days, and that's why I love him even more!

He awkwardly stands on the side of the road, in the middle of a patch of brush on a turn about, as I try to capture pictures for our amazing memories! He does it even though he thinks it’s odd, and I love him for that! We do not have a tripod and these moments are exactly when I tell him I need one in my life! Instead, I balance the camera on the roof of the car and snap a picture of us, in nature, enjoying God’s beauty!

That awkward couple on the side of the road that you drove by!

Taking those back roads that twist and wind makes the trip that much more enjoyable. Being able to see things we never thought we would is such an amazing experience! What might seem like hills to those who grew up in the “real” mountains are enormous works of God’s creation to me! When we got to Julian, we of course stopped at the Julian Pie Company and grabbed a slice of pie and then it was off to the California Wolf Center! More on those later!

For now, spill it:: where is the most awkward place you stopped to take a picture for the memories or for your blog?

  1. How fun! Julian Pie Company…Yum!

  2. Hmm…I try not to ask for pictures in awkward places very often, because it drives Daniel batty, but one time we were at an aquarium and they had one of those little domes underneath the tanks for people to stick their heads into. I made Daniel get under there and I just couldn’t seem to get a good picture. So while I was fidgeting with the camera, taking picture after picture, a long line of kids formed behind him. I didn’t even notice them until one of the kids actually crawled under there with him! Awkward!

  3. I haven’t posted it on my blog…maybe I But there used to be a billboard advertising the Marines (I LOVE them) next to my friend’s house. One day when I was taking her home, I suggested we hop out and take a picture with him! So. We did. πŸ™‚ It was such a fun..and sort of awkward..time! πŸ™‚
