We drove past sunflowers were bursting out of the median, setting off the bright lines painted on the road. The crunchy yellow grass spread out in both directions, truncated by mountains turned purple by the atmosphere. Minutes down the road, fuzzy rounds of sage brush densely dotted the landscape, the soft green sweeping back and forth across the valley.
Mike and I both agreed, we love the green desert. We agreed on another thing too: we're getting so excited for our road trip. There is so much world to see.
