One of the things that I love about working for Taste of Home is getting the chance to see so many interesting things as I travel. Because I drive to each show, I’m able to take in a lot of scenery, and occasionally take some time to do a little sight-seeing. As I left home a couple of weeks ago for California, I drove through the Bonneville Salt Flats along I-80 in Utah. I’ve driven through here before, but it’s always fascinating to look out and see the salt flats stretching out for miles.
After completing a couple of shows in California, I headed north to Washington. As I drove through the mountains of northern California, I saw snow! Yes, it’s still early October, but winter is definitely on it’s way. It was too cold to get out and take a picture, so please pardon the view from inside my van :)
Yesterday, I drove through the beautiful Columbia River Gorge on my way home to Utah from Portland, Oregon. It was raining off and on, but for several miles, there was a beautiful rainbow stretching across the Gorge. Even though I’ve driven through the Gorge more times than I can remember, this is the first time I’ve seen a rainbow there. It’s a beautiful drive any time of the year, but I was glad I went through yesterday!
I’m looking forward to seeing many more things as I continue to travel this fall. I have shows in Utah, California, Washington, Arizona and Missouri coming up, so if I’ll be heading your direction, let me know what to watch for!
