2012: Road Trip Part I: Leaving Chicago

December 26, 2012

When we decided to move from Chicago to Los Angeles, we knew that a road trip was the only way to go. I’d always wanted to drive across the country and photograph all the places along the way that we city-dwellers so rarely get to see. We packed up our car, and our kitty, and headed west over the course of six days. I tried to pull over often and take photos very deliberately, but mostly we just whizzed by our awe-inspiring surroundings and I had to always be ready with a hand on my camera.

These photos were taken on days 1 & 2 of our trip. Our first leg took us from Chicago to Missouri where I got to spend time with two phenomenal friends, and then from Missouri through Kansas, toward Colorado. Days 3-6 to follow!
