Dina Lettre - April 11, 2014 - 10:17 am

A blessing indeed…and a beautiful one, at that!

Amy Avery - April 11, 2014 - 12:30 pm

Patty, I am so blessed to have gotten to see you last evening and to spend some time just chatting and laughing and enjoying each other! Do you know just how truly beautiful you are? Yes, you are stunning on the outside, but your heart and the love you give to all who know you is what is the most brilliant and stunning beauty about you. I appreciate how you take the time to care for not only your family, but also your friends including me. It’s an intentional care and love that comes straight form the heart and it is a gift. I am blessed to be a recipient of that gift and I thank you! Have fun this weekend! Love you!

Oh it sounds like such a wonderful time. The photo is awesome…sunsets are just the most beautiful and peaceful things ever. Wonderful blessings.

I love that quote! Need to remind myself that sometimes.

You sure have been busy little bees lately!

B - April 12, 2014 - 2:09 am

Looks like a peaceful place in that photo and it sounds like an eventful weekend! We’re supposed to go our county fair here this and a birthday party. I’m hoping to get in some R&R, though! Enjoy your weekend. :)

Gorgeous sunset!

1440 {86} :: Dixie National Forest

At Cedar City, we exited Interstate 15 and headed east on Route 14. Within minutes, we were in the middle of nowhere… No businesses, no homes, no people. We lost cell phone reception, and rarely passed other cars.  It was beautiful. The road wrapped itself around the curves of the mountains. It dropped, and it […]

May I just say you are living what most of us only dream of doing? This is a bucket list adventure for sure!

Dina@4LettreWords - April 4, 2014 - 11:22 am

Oh, that little church!

Kathy - April 4, 2014 - 3:25 pm

What an adventure! Thanks for sharing it with us :)

Lisa @ FSL - April 4, 2014 - 8:17 pm

Every week I pick a random person to take a peek into their blog from Kim’s Friday Find, and every week I head right to yours. You always hook me with your thumbnail photo. I look forward to reading more of your adventures.

Sarah - April 4, 2014 - 10:55 pm

The journey is everything. Beautiful photos.

Mike Nichols - April 5, 2014 - 3:21 am

Where is that church located? I’d like to head out there and get some pictures. Is it on Rt 14 or on 89? Thanks! Nice pics!

patty - April 5, 2014 - 3:01 pm

1440 {85} :: Favorite Road Trip Songs

*** Ya know, the whole story sounds romantic, right? But this all happened after spending a whole week together, just he and I … We shared one room, the same bed, every meal, every conversation, every day all day skiing and boarding, 24 hours each day for seven days straight.  {i loved it-shhh!} And then […]

lovely images from your trip! You really put so much work into this post!! I love the music adds~

Kathy - March 28, 2014 - 2:56 pm

Looks like a fun and memorable adventure!

rebecca - March 28, 2014 - 4:39 pm

I’m loving your music choices, that must have been a lot of work. I would love just to stop and stare at those mountains and then photograph them in every kind if light. We don’t have mush in the way of mountains out where I am.

Molly - March 28, 2014 - 6:38 pm

I LOVE so many of these songs. Thank you for sharing and reminding me of a few I had forgotten about


Marlene - March 28, 2014 - 8:24 pm

Makes me want to get in our car and go.

Diane - March 30, 2014 - 5:06 am

Talk about serendipity…we leave for our first road trip as a married couple this week! I looked at the list and between the two of us, we have most of those songs in our play lists but you gave me some to add. I enjoyed the commentary with the inspiring photos. So happy I stopped by.

Kim - March 30, 2014 - 10:07 am

I love the song list. I started, not sure maybe finished a road trip post using songs that were playing on the radio as the caption to my photos as we went, maybe that was Facebook, but we had a blast listening for the right lines. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m putting a link to this on my Facebook road trip page:).

Kristy, Life-n-Reflection - March 30, 2014 - 2:51 pm

I couldn’t agree more. Great playlist BTW

Suzanne - April 3, 2014 - 1:12 am

Oh, I wish I could!
I’m trying to talk my
hubby into another bike
trip next fall — maybe
the San Juan Islands in
Washington State : )

Love your photos and
the feeling that I was
riding right along with
the two of you, singing
my heart out! My hubby
and I LOVE music and–
surprise–I am the one
in this family who also
loves talk radio!

Wonder where you are
off to, next? Wherever it
is, I know you are making
it an adventure!

1440 {84} :: Road Trip

we rise early in the west because our bodies are east coast bound and we breathe relief because we remember yesterday the sun rises and splashes gold along the ghostly mountaintops  and though we see blue skies, we wonder what’s behind us, behind the ridge and if Titan will find us here we follow our […]

Looks like so much fun, Patty…but I’m glad y’all are back safe and sound. :)

Dawn - March 21, 2014 - 1:33 pm

Aren’t we thankful for inconveniences sometimes, they bring adventures we would never think of on our own. Look at the wonderful memories made and the beautiful places, you guys were able to visit.

Rese - March 21, 2014 - 2:00 pm

Nothing quite like an impromptu adventure
