Fourth & Fourth meme

I have not been as active as I would like to be on the Internet because the boss thinks I should work while I am at the office… And my hubby thinks I should snuggle when I am at home.

But I could never turn down a tag from the fabulous Trisha Her post always touch a soft spot in my heart (yes, I have a soft spot in there somewhere)   Her writing can make me feel all warm and fuzzy or like lighting a fire under someones azz all in the same breath. (what can I say, she has mad skills)

OKey Dokey here are the rules:

1. Go to your pictures file.
2. Go to the 4th file.
3. Go to the 4th picture.
4. Post it and tell the story.
5. Tag 4 more people.


I took this picture on a cross country drive from North West Wyoming to South East Texas. (1500 miles… You really have to love each other to ride in a car together for 1500 miles)

Mr. J and I were torn between hauling butt back home on the interstate, making good time… Or cruising the back country. When we got to Colorado I got a wild idea (what are the chances?) We should hop off the interstate and take US 50 across the state. Just a suggestion to other brave souls out there who might seek adventure: IF YOU CHOSE THIS ROAD (and I recommend it highly) DO NOT TRY IT IN THE WINTER!

We went up and down and around some of the steepest most beautiful mountains I have ever seen.  In this picture, we were crossing over the Continental Divide.

I stepped out onto the ledge and took several pictures. Mr. J kept begging me to come back off the ledge or he was going to leave me. Ha! I had the keys and there was no way he was coming out to get them.

I truly love my home. BUT, if I could afford to live anywhere in the world, this would be one of my top choices. (at least for the summer months)

Now for my tags:

    Nice picture and nice memories. If I had the time and money, I’d always take the scenic route. 😉 If I won the lottery that would be my full time job. 😀

    Nice photo. I have always wanted to go out west. Both my kids have. I’ll get my turn someday. I hate highways. They are so boring. I love to take the back roads.

    Awww, shucks, you say the nicest things! Thanks, you sweet talker you!

    Great photo!!! Holy crap! It reminds me of hiking in the Adirondacks and the view from Mt. Marcy! I got dizzy up there but it was freakin’ gorgeous!

    Rocky Mountain High Colorado!!! (Go, JD)

    Okey dokey, tag duly noted. 🙂

    Beautiful photograph and great story to go with it! I wish I had more time to take the back roads cross-country. It’s always proved worthwhile to me.

    […] Betme (have I mentioned how glad I am you’re back?) tagged me with a photo meme. I am apparently horribly susceptible to blogger peer pressure. […]
