Thank you very much for posting all those nice pictures I must sag I was astonished about the enormous distance you can drive in this country without a sight of any civilisation. It must be wonderful when you can stretch out your arms and feel free in the middle of somewhere. Sure, you must have had a very nice day out, whish I was there as well with all of you.

It's one thing I like about driving in the US when I go to Connecticut: The scenery. I literally don't see much civilisation prior to hitting Albany, NY, and the Adirondacks look wonderful. Plus, driving in the US is also fun partly because the petrol is cheap, haha!

So right... crossing the Governor bridge from Windsor to Detroit doesn't provide the most stuning scenery, but nothing's ever perfect.

Oh Lib,

These are very nice pictures. Especially the one of you, iammy & Midnight Monk. Also the last one of a sunset.

I love this part of the Country & living in San Jose I'm not too far away. My sister lives in Lincoln, Oregon right by the ocean. I miss it.

Does it mean a couch crosses the road there, that if you're a couch you need to turn at the next intersection, or that there's actually a big couch where everyone parks and sits on it?

Looks like a nice drive. There's something odd about the landscape of Weed which makes that first one my favorite.

lol. the image of a couch crossing the street is cracking me up. very douglas adams.

the whole drive is spectacular. the scenery is pretty diverse all along the way so it never gets boring to look at (except say, between dunnigan and redding where it's mostly flat and dry).

that landscape north of weed was very unusual. felt like i was traversing alien terrain, the way the land was so sort of fleshy colored, and freckled with those cute little trees, which i can't help anthropomorphizing. for miles and miles i was driving past that kind of landscape but didn't stop to take a picture of it because i figured just the hills and shrubbery alone would have made for a less interesting picture. i was so excited to have come by that body of water that i drove some ten miles ahead to the next turnoff so i could come back and get a photo of it.

thanks everyone, for your feedback on the pics.
