Nevada Day-Tripper: Wedding Roadtrip ll

I have been on the road for the past 2 weeks, traveling around Idaho, Oregon and Northern Nevada.  What started out as a trip to see my daughter’s wedding, turned into an expansive road trip with my son in tow.  J and I’s wedding was so beautiful, and as her photographer, I really had to focus, to keep my mommy tears at bay!  If you are a parent you KNOW exactly what that feels like.

My son, and groomsman, had a terrific time, dancing and escorting his grandmother, and bridesmaid.  My heart is full.  And. The. Venue.

A little ways behind the house, sits a pond amongst wheat grass and pine.

We stayed for 4 days, then returned home on US 95S, through beautiful Idaho, and Oregon.  If you haven’t been you must go see Payette National Forest, so green and peaceful.  If I had more time on our trip, I would have pulled out my laptop to write more on my novel.
