Today we went through four states after leaving Georgia: Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, and Missouri.
Tennessee was pretty dull, but the scenery was pretty. I know these mountains aren't much, but for a Florida girl who is used to everything being flat, this was definitely a welcome change.
On the radio: Amie by Pure Prairie League
The boredom of Tennessee was completely trumped by that of Kentucky. Everything was very green and alive, but other than that there didn't seem to be much else going on. The occasional house or barn seemingly in the middle of nowhere. On the radio: Car Wheels on a Gravel Road by Lucinda Williams.
After a while I got tired of looking for picture worthy scenery so I turned the camera on the occupants of the car.My pets have been utter angels on this trip. My children, not so much. But I think that's to be expected.
On the radio: Puttin' on the Ritz by Taco. (I'm so thankful for satellite radio.)
Next came Illinois, my only picture of it being the state sign. This was about the time that I stopped watching things zip past my car window and decided to just play with the radio. Jay made me listen to him screech along to Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses. After that, there was just way too much testosterone in the car so I had to even it out a bit with Hammer and Nail by the Indigo Girls.Then we finally entered Missouri. Again, only a state sign, but we have quite a bit more time left in this state.We have a long day ahead of us tomorrow-probably a 12 hour day-so I don't know what, if anything, I'll be posting in this space. Next stop Denver! Hopefully.
