Country Road

This was another shot from our trip out west and what much of New Mexico looks like in the eastern part of the state. While it lacks trees and vegetation, which we are use to, we really found the landscape quite beautiful. I never thought I would say that after my teenage days of driving through New Mexico on our way to Colorado to snow ski during the winter months. It is amazing how 30 years can change one’s perspective. It is also obvious why so many people love living in the state. There really is the feeling of openness, big country, big skies and beautiful sunsets.

One more note from our trip, while the Oklahoma portion of I-40 was the longest in our trip, it was also much nicer than I remember Oklahoma being. Again, I can see why so many love living there. I know the wind can be bothersome after a while, but every area has its drawbacks.

  1. I think age definitely changes perspective. A few years ago, we drove through Scotland on a route we’d not been on since I was a child. I was blown away by the awesome majesty of the unspoiled mountains….yet I’d been that way dozens of times as a child, and I’d never even noticed them. All I ever thought then was, ‘Are we nearly there?’!
    We now live where I grew up – plenty wind, no trees, but wonderful views of the sun setting over the Atlantic… and I notice things I’d never seen as a child.
    I think too, that grace in our hearts, cause us to see beauty in God’s creation – all varieties of His wonderful creation.


  2. Hi Homeschool,
    I think you are right. Grace in our hearts does cause us to see things we missed before. I’m grateful that I can see it now … especially given that we might be heading that way. At lease we are hoping for that.
