hill top view (Ashland folly)
Remember when I did this, way back in April?  This was the view that made me pull the car over at the top of the hill. I think you can see the potential - the golden light on the Ashland Springs Hotel, the pink blossoms, the green rolling hills - I even think the crooked mailbox and the steep road add a little charm, although I wouldn't call it a particularly successful capture. There are too many wires and poles and the mini-van in the parking lot at the bottom of the hill (and geographic center of the image) isn't doing the photo any favors.

Since there was a relatively painless solution ($$, but not trip-threatening $$$), I'm not sorry I stopped to try and get a picture. I'm sorry I locked the keys in, but fortunately the problem was solved before it did much more than get my heart pumping a little faster.

Since there is another potential road trip (cross-country!) on the horizon, I thought I'd better get some of these April trip pictures posted.

  1. Cross-country? I am intrigued. And maybe jealous, depending on where the destination is.
    These pictures are great, and I am glad you got locked out of your car if it means these were the cosmic tradeoff!

  2. Ha ha ha! I think it will make you and Erich laugh: Upstate New York! I will get to see Niagara Falls! Do you have any suggestions for Fun Roadtrip Times? Anything I need to see for sure?

  3. I would say to definitely go to the Canadian side of the Falls~I didn't get to but it seems a little...cleaner, maybe? Go on the boat, wear the blue parka~it is a lot of fun, and it is also a lot wetter than you might be told. They call it a mist but I would compare it to a downpour.
    Try the Tim Horton's coffee, and don't be disturbed that every 20-25 miles along the highway they have Visitor Center's that aren't so bad.
