From California to Indiana
Our friend Bunny moved across the country-perfect excuse for a road trip!
Battle Mountain, Nevada: Oh man, we drove as far as we could after packing everything in. Sadly that meant Battle Mountain. The Big Chief motel was trying harder than average-cleaner, more spruced up and multiple flower pots.
Northern Nevada in a nutshell.
Rawlins, Wyoming: No time to hike, but driving past the Great Salt Lake is always a bit surreal. We ended the day in Wyoming where I walked past the local history museum (sadly closed).
I need to know where they got the dino! I assume it represents all the fossils? Clearly I need to visit again when they are open.
Original schoolhouse-I like the informational plaque so the museum doesn't have to actually be open. Also, I wonder exactly how many visitors it gets when it is open.
I think this is a good idea let's assume the tree is no longer living
ugg-sorry for the blurry picture, but you get the idea!
The wildlife coexist easily with the town. A family group strolled down a couple streets stopping for snacks here and there.
York, Nebraska: Nebraska is always better to drive through than I fear-more trees, more rolling hills, more sights.
Great historical stop on the Lincoln ( L I N C O L N) Highway
This is how you know you are on the Lincoln Highway :)
We managed to be there at the same time as a pack of camp teens so I only snuck in a few random photos.
This is my fave.
Then we got to the actual town for the night.
Look how fun they are!
Go back in time a few decades at the Chances "R" Diner.
Bloomington, Indiana: Here are the things that haven't changed in the last 20 years.
The entrance to the main campus
and the people coming and going.
The chicken salad sandwich at Dagwoods-wow, so happy to eat this again.
My bike shop!!
And the game store where dh and I started our now massive collection. Ah, good times, good times.
