Thankful For The Road Ahead - Day 2

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

I just love this 10 day Challenge that Debbie Reynolds is hosting.

 

For today's post I would like to share my gratitude for the roads ahead.

 

I am very lucky to have a career where a time clock does not exist.  If I need to take off and hit the open road, I only need to make sure my schedule is clear.  No boss to check with for time off other than myself.

 

Every so often, I get the urge to hit the road and take a break.  (That is the Saggitarius in me).  I much prefer jumping in the car to boarding an airplane.  The road gives me the freedom to stop and take in the wonder all around me.

 

Here are a few shots of the inside of a tunnel in Glenwood Springs and the view from a rest stop in Vail, Colorado.

Hi Belinda

Love that tunnel photo you used to illustrate your post. Having the flexibility, as least some of the time, to just hit the road is a real blessing, isn't it?

I can almost feel the speed you were traveling in that car, Belinda!  Please tell me you weren't driving and snapping it at the same time. . .LOL

Hi Belinda Spillman - that tunnel picture is outstanding.  It represents your post so very well.  Colorado is such beautiful country.  I don't think we ever took a road that did not have a stream or river next to it. I can see why you like to take a car!

How did you get that photo, Belinda!  I'm sure you didn't pull over in the tunnel to shoot it. Or did you?

I know what you mean. It is great not having to check with a boss and controlling our own businesses. I too love getting in the car and driving.
