Sorry so slow around here. Got back to Nashville on Tuesday.
Left my house at 2 am, so by the time I got to Nashville it was all I could do to keep my eyes open (I had been awake all night).
Critter was, to say the least, not happy.
Fort Defiance is unique for another reason. It is also the point where the Ohio and the Mississippi waters meet and converge.
Route 60 takes me from Kentucky, right over Fort Defiance, and all the way to Springfield, MO then I turn south from there to go home.
The biggest difference in the two routes is the scenery. If you have driven I-40 once, you’ve driven it a hundred times. I fall in to the latter category.
I took the Northern route going home. I took I-40 coming back. Time wise I didn’t see a difference. So I guess it doesn’t matter which way I go, I will say the taking 60 it seemed as if I had less traffic to contend with, and I didn’t have to run through any major cities like I do on the I-40 route.
But I got yet another sky line to add to my collection
Last time I took 40 I couldn’t get a quick shot of Memphis. I was able to this time.
Sometimes I debate stopping and getting better skyline pictures, but this is the way I see the cities. And I take a lot of pictures because I want friends, family and my kids to see things the way I saw them. Such as through a windshield, or passing by.
Staged shots are nice and all, but my travels aren’t nice, and the quick shots can be fun. That and I rarely have the time to stop, find a good spot to take the picture, then get back on the road again. However the biggest reason remains I want folks to see what I see. It’s as close as I can get to having folks with me when I travel, as I know my daughter for instance, wants to.
