Today, January 21, 2015, was low-key because the sun never fully peeked out from behind the clouds.
For most of the day there was dense freezing fog, super-light snow flurries that stuck only to the plant life (and not the road thankfully!) and masses of clouds that actually swept the landscape BELOW our elevation.
We came down through it which made for slow going to match the conditions… cold (below freezing in the early hours), difficult to see and curves!
All in all, it was a quiet day in the way that a blanket of snow is quiet.
The focus required in dense fog, which sometimes allows only 2 or 3 seconds of visibility, means slowing down and constant focus. And… it can wear you out! 🙂
As we travel across America, the views change moment-by-moment. The scenery changes with every turn of the wheel. A camera, no matter how precise the lens, seems never to fully capture the breath-taking beauty as it is seen by the naked eye and taken in by my naked heart… and yet it comes as close as possible… and will have to do.
I have yet to find a place in America that isn’t …in some way… incredibly beautifully.
The photos below are one slice of today’s “America Through the Windshield”. I hope you enjoy them.
Keep your shiny side UP!
