Sunsets, Skylines, and Signs of Tom Travels

November 15, 2010

While still working on my finale post, I want to give you folks something to look at. Check out the beautiful sunsets, weird signs, and bright skylines on my trip.

 

I made sure to have my hands-free mobile device

 

Illinois then Iowa

 

Iowa hosts the World's Largest Truckstop

 

Des Moines to KC through Missouri

Some history in Kansas

 

Leaving Kansas, entering Colorado

 

Denver Skyline from the west

 

One of many ski resorts

 

Coming down in elevation

 

The landscape opens up and canyons form

 

The river wasn't green

 

It rained everyday I was there, not so fabulous

The Vegas skyline is in there

 

I was sad, and happy, to leave

 

Into the Grand Canyon State

3 nights in Phoenix

The Phoenix Skyline

 

Always fun to see a sign full of bullet holes

 

Arizona was voting to legalize medicinal marijuana. This restaurant wants to legalize pasta sauce.

Have you ever thought about picking up a hitchhiker?

The infamous L.A. Times

Los Angeles Skyline

Land of the Stars

Child abduction! I kept my eyes open for the gray van

Diets don't fail, people fail diets

Election Time, vote Colbert Nation

L.A. Skyline from Griffith Park

Back through Arizona

Driving on I-40, FedEx trucks every mile, it was crazy!

I love the city name, Texico, New Mexico

I bought some tasty beef jerky in Clines Corner

Reminded me of the movie Young Guns

I would hope people don't need to be reminded, I guess not.

 

Either the 27th was the last auction, or they're on the 38th

'Drive Friendly- The Texas Way' I didn't think Texans were known to be friendly

Fort Worth Skyline

You know you’re in Texas when you see trucks, cowboys, and hot blondes with guns:

1-800-561-1605, in case you need it

yee-haw!

Sex sells

Austin Skyline

Not on this trip

Great marketing slogan

Home of the graphing calculator, remember those?

I expected to see tornados, but surprisingly I saw many casinos.

The Gateway to the West

I saw this sign in 3 cities on the trip

Almost back home

A blurry Chicago skyline. $5 if you can guess where I took this from.

Almost done. Here are sunsets from 6 states, which is your favorite?

 

Colorado

Utah

Arizona

Texas

Kansas

Missouri

    My guess on the Chicago shot is while on LSD, on the bridge that is above Wacker and in front of Navy Pier, shooting westward. Favorite sunset shot is Missouri.
