fall colors in the Shenandoah Valley and the Tennessee Appalachians

 trucks, trucks, trucks

 the worst motel with most comfortable bed in Jackson, Tennessee

 no rain, no hail, no tornado warnings and no snow going west, this time

 vast empty flatness dotted with sage brush and slashed with arroyos

 cottonwood trees turned intense yellow

 red mesas and red gullies above and below the surface of the pale yellow ochre land

 mile long trains inching across the desert

 smell of evergreens around Flagstaff

 black smoke clouds and smell of forest fire in Arizona

 black sky cut with dramatic lightening in the California desert

 Cajon Pass lights, car, grass fire, lightening, against a black sky

 dramatic skies between Phoenix and Las Cruces heading east

 yellow, late afternoon sun on the red rocks in New Mexico

 rain, rain, rain and drizzle in Texas

 seeing the bald eagle with a newly caught fish in front of Dottie and George’s window
