Journey’s end (part one)

October 14, 2010

Here I am in Baltimore.

Today was pretty good, not a lot of either wind or rain, and a serendipitous detour which took me into the prettiest area of the trip so far.

It was mostly I-70. But, I think that because I’m a cheap-skate and told the GPS to avoid toll  roads, it sent me south on I-79 and east along I-68 to avoid them (I imagine) them on I-70.

It was pretty all the way, the fall colors were amazing. Especially driving east from Morganstown, the hills and valleys were just covered in turning leaves, red, yellow, purple. The only shame was the cloudy day. With a bit of sun on those leaves, it would have been astonishing.

The trucks would slow right down going up the hills, and then hurtle down the other side. There was one truck that I swear that we mutually overtook each other about ten times doing this uphill/downhill dance.

State count: Ohio, Pennsylvania (briefly), West Virginia, Maryland.

Photos: Sunrise over Columbus; West Virginia trees.

    I still loathe the camera but I am slightly entranced with the images, which obviously peeves me. Have fun kids xx
