a perfect morning sun

An Ole’ Country road leading to my family homestead where tree branches dropped low to form the perfect sun shade, a one way country road just meant for a household. As John Denver’s hit song “Take Me Home, Country Roads” runs through the mind while driving here will be the best description of this picture. This country road cuts right through the family orchard with mighty views of fruit trees on both sides with some highlights of bamboo shrubs.

Teotihuacan ~ Pyramid of the Sun

The Aztec World

Climbing the narrow steep steps up to this Pyramid is an experience. Its scorching hot weather and with its high humidity, you will be sweating hard ahead of yourself!

After all the effort, you’ll be feeling on top of the world with spectacular view all around you. They say …. There used to be an altar on the top and was said to have built to honor a deity.

The Enchanted Highway

This is an eye catcher on the freeway, was curious what the sculpture was all about. Well this a kind of hobby to someone with a talent and a collection of scrap metals and the love of wildlife.

On the same highway stretch, I thought the drive was beyond beautiful to my mind as the sky was just as blue and white clouds in contrast.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Driving through the park entrance. This park has an area of 110.1 sq miles in size. Visitors may drive many miles within the park area
The Painted Desert ~ The color isn’t quite seen like ‘painted’ but is probably best seen in the Fall with leaves of different color.

The tiny-teeny town of Medora is a gateway to this quiet and isolated park. This park is the least visited of all and is of course a tribute to the 26th President who was also a Conservationist. When we arrived and drove around Medora, we instantly felt “at leisure” as there was no traffc lights, cars were moving kinda slow. Looking around, we saw this ☑️ an amazing ride!

Medora

Its a Cowboy Hall of Fame too!

Billings ~ North Shore

Billings – not exactly our plan to be in the city after hours of driving but we were headed to our overnight accommodation.
Finally our cozy place! The grocery store is just next door. Simple and got ourselves some deli items and we’re good for Day 1 adventure.
Some features that made our evening simple and helped wrapped up today’s on the road adventure.

West Yellowstone

A small vibrant town, this place can sometimes be a hectic place to be with the cost of accommodation skyrockets from May to October. By its name, it is the gateway to the Yellowstone National Park and Mammoth Hot springs.

With our destination city still about 4 hours away, we decided to stop by for our picnic lunch at the city park here. Just after lunch, the weather changed, it drizzled with a cloudy sky but did not last long. We then continued our trip directly to Billings and that was nine hours drive total. Such a long and tiring day!

Scenic Gallatin Valley

Chose to drive through scenic highway 191 on our way to Billings driving through the beautiful Gallatin country with Gallatin river visible all along for hours. Its an awesome ride with many miles of breathtaking views of the valley.
