After weeks of battling allergies and rain, I couldn’t wait to jump into the car and head north the moment sunlight washed over the mountains. I called a friend to see how she was doing (several of us have had colds or something like that). She said that she was off for a drive with her family.


While taking this photo, I overheard a guy say, “I could live here.” And I thought, “I do.” Well, 30 minutes away.
