This photo, taken while I was riding shotgun, is from a drive along the Payette River in Idaho.
Since May we’ve pulled our travel trailer around five states: the Grand Canyon to meet up with one of our daughters vacationing there and then a few other Arizona sites that have been on our bucket list. From there we were on to southern California to visit family. Our next trip took us to Oregon for one of Hubby’s Muzzle Loaders Competition. That then led us to Idaho for the fun of it. Then we headed off to Nevada with friends.
These destinations equate to long hours on the road. Usually, it’s at least a one day drive and sometimes two days of driving. Hubby is the designated driver when towing the trailer. Something I’m too scared to try. My job is to be an extra set of eyes and help with keeping us on our correct route. This job leaves me lots of time to take in the sites as we drive by them. I keep my camera handy and when something I see grabs me, the window goes down, and I start clicking. It doesn’t matter if the outside temps are at 122 degrees or if it’s pouring down rain. I click.
Sometimes I end up with more photos from riding shotgun than I do of the place we’re visiting. I’ve started color coding my shotgun images in Adobe Lightroom and they just might become a series one day.
