TERRIBLE HIPSTER TRIP ... THUS FAR


Today is Day Eight of our "Terrible Hipster Trip." (So named because, on the very first day, on our way to Iowa, we talked about hipsters, how we're hipsters, and how we are inadequate hipsters.) For the first couple of days, we stayed in Iowa, at my mom's house. We visited Omaha and hit up the Henry Doorly Zoo, which is currently ranked as the No. 1 zoo in the nation. Since then, we've passed through South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Wyoming again, Montana once more. We're currently in Polson, Montana, near Glacier National Park. We'll drive to the Seattle/Vancouver area later today and will finish up our trip next week. We've already created new inside jokes (thanks to a South Dakota state trooper who thought I was Ty's wife and Zoe was our child). Collectively, we've taken thousands of photos. We've laughed until we've cried. We've plucked sprigs of wild sage and put them on the dashboard, airing the car. We've oohed and aahed over the Badlands, the bison, the tiny chipmunks, the Yellowstone Grand Canyon, the vista. The vista. The vista. The colors. All the colors.

  2. LOVE. So many gorgeous textures and landscapes in these photos. You didn't quite make it to MN, huh? :) Let me know if you venture a bit farther north next time: I have lots of recommends.

    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy the rest of your wanderings. Baby Elliot is currently no fan of the car seat, so it may be a while before I venture off on another road trip. Therefore posts like these for me are big gulps of wild-river water. :)

  6. I've never driven out west. One day I will. Looking forward to seeing more photos. Did you use up all those rolls of film? I'm so precious with film I've had the same roll in my camera for a month now.

  9. Love the jellies and the badlands. The badlands are the coolest. We went there when I was a pipsqueak and I was impressed even then. Definitely want to go again.
    Thanks for the postcard, btw. Keith was excited about it and I bragged about you and how bloggy friends are so great. :D
