After some 2,800 miles…but who’s counting…we arrived safe and sound in Alabama. The dogs all handled the trip very well and will soon have the chance to stretch their legs in their new home. What a gorgeous drive we had across the Grand Teton area of Wyoming. Gorgeous colors in the mountains for miles and miles and miles. The first day on the road covered eastern Oregon and a good portion of Idaho. We settled in for the night in a small town called Glenns Ferry, ID. While it was a cute little Hamlet, we were happy to hit the road the next morning as the temps that day were forecasted to hit 111 degrees!
Day two was travelling through the high country of Utah and across southern Wyoming. This was my favorite travel day as the entire drive was filled with spectacular views of mountains, rivers and more. The cellphone pictures really don’t do it justice. You’ll just have to go sometime and see it for yourself! We crossed through the corner of Colorado and settled into Ft. Collins for the night.
The next day was the longest drive…almost 800 miles. Starting out in Ft Collins, we ended up in Oklahoma City for the night. Next day was a day (mostly) out of the car visiting with Nancy’s cousins where the dogs got to hang out in their makeshift fenced yard for several welcomed hours. We all went to a late lunch at The Cattleman’s down near the historic stockyards area in Oklahoma City. After dining on some yummy red meat, we got a tour of the city before hitting the road for a short ride to Ft. Smith, Arkansas.
Next morning started with a breakfast feed at the Cracker Barrel next door…then across Arkansas, through Memphis, and on through northwestern Alabama to our destination! All in all it was a great trip…but I know all involved are not looking to repeat it any time soon!
Now to working my way through boxes and more boxes while the dogs enjoy romps in the backyard and the daily dip in the pool!
