Vacation 2007

Well, I just returned from my annual summer vacation. This year, I drove my new 2007 Ford Escape to Washington state. The trip from Dallas TX to Wilbur WA was my usual route. Dallas to Amarillo, to Raton, NM, to Denver CO and on to Cheyenne, WY. Continuing north to Casper, and Sheridan, then on to Billings, Bozeman, Butte, and Missoula, MT. I crossed the northern part of Idaho, through Couer d'Alene, and into Spokane, WA.

My return trip was roughly the exact route, but I side-tracked from Raton, continuing south through Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM, then taking I-40 back to Amarillo, TX, and then on to Dallas.

During my vacation, I worked on projects around my parents home, as well as on my lake house on the Columbia River. I also took a day-hike with my nephew and sister (pictures in my photo album!)

This vacation was enjoyable, but, as always, it felt too short even though I took off nearly 4 weeks from work. I left with several projects planned for the next year, as well as several projects that weren't completed. Luckily, there is always next year!
