Spin Cycle--Drive

The Spin Cycle this week is all about drive.  Drive in any form, drive to succeed, drive around the block, drive to distraction, drive.
My favorite kind of drive is the kind we take regularly when the walls of our lovely home begin to drive us up them.  We love to take road trips.  Short ones, long ones, loops, dirt roads, any kind of drive, as long as it's out of the city limits.
Our most recent one was our trip this last weekend to Cheyenne,about a 45 minutes away, with Nick's folks.  It was a fun day and we did find a dirt road to drive down on the way home.  Any drive is better if there is a dirt road involved.
A road stop, good for fresh air and food.

Stopping to look at the scenery is necessary.
Especially with scenery like this.

Not all drives are by car or truck.

Another road side stop.

Again, driving like this is good for the soul, and the adventure.

The kids love it too!

I kind of wish I was here right now.

Enjoying the scenery.

I love our "backyard".

Loaded up for another adventure--let's drive!
Of course not all our driving is done in a car, bicycles and four wheelers are standard modes of transportation too.
Our next big road trip will be in March for Spring break.  Really looking forward to that one.
Go see Gretchen for more drive spins.

Oh man, I can't tell you how much I envy your car trips! Jimmy is NOT a car trip guy, he'd never just go for drive for fun. I used to love them when I was a kid. Of course, we don't have your "backyard" here either! Well, there's lots of beautiful stuff to see, but in order to get there, you have to drive miles and miles of traffic-ridden freeway. As you'll find out in March!

When you talk about going for drives, it makes me want to GO! I'm craving a nice roadtrip, doesn't even have to be far - just some backroad driving and sight-seeing.

I have always loved a good car trip. So much freedom!

In some of those scenic pics your hubs looks like he was superimposed into them, the background is almost unreal. Gorgeous!!!

The 4 wheeling looked like SOOOO MUCH FUN!!!

Fell in LOVE with your part of the country in 2008 when we did our 6 week Jeep Wrangler road trip. We crossed most of the state on HWY 287. Did a little dirt roading while in the area of Laramie. Great post of driving.
