From Washington to Ohio.

The trip to Pennsylvania took us through Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and finally PA! I added a few new states to my “States I’ve Been To” list. Those would include North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. And do you know which states I hated? North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan! Michigan was the biggest offender. I’m sorry if you live there, but good grief it was a horrible drive! Never let me go there again!


Dry Falls, Washington.


Juniper was along for the ride.



Old concrete.


In Montana, white crosses along Route 2 mark where someone has died. This dangerous 70 MPH section of road has already taken 17 lives. SLOW DOWN!


Big Sky Country.


Continental Divide.


We saw so many trains on the way to PA!


There were plenty of stormy skies but they mostly stayed away. They were fun to watch from a distance though.


Dino time!


There’s an underground tour in Havre, Montana. This shot was taken while on the tour looking up at the sidewalk. The purple glass squares are inset in part of sidewalk.


The underground tour took us through a dentist office, a saloon and even a brothel.


Beautiful buildings in Havre.


Clouds and cows.


This gorgeous church is in Montana!


Cowboy Bar. Cowboys and old neon? Heck yes! I love me some cowboys.


“I’m gonna get you with my tiny arms!”


Rugby, North Dakota. The geographical center of North America!


Waking up to a beautiful morning.


Blazing sky.


One of many Paul Bunyan and Baby the Blue Ox sculptures we saw on the trip.


Giant Pike – Erskine, Minnesota.


Cordwood Pete and Tamarack. The legendary brother of Paul Bunyan. There was supposed to be a statue of Pete and Tamarack somewhere in this town, but we couldn’t find it! Maybe someone stole them?


We became very fond of Paul and Babe. We even bought a Paul Bunyan and Baby the Blue Ox salt and pepper shaker set.


Babe on the sidewalk.


In Cloquet, Minnesota is a gas station designed by famous American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. We HAD to stop there for gas. There are restrooms and a sitting area above the actual gas station. I took advantage of that.


Frank Lloyd Wright.


Big Paul Bunyan.


These poor guys were locked up! Stop vandalizing people. Knock that shit off so everyone else can enjoy giant things!


45th Parallel.


Back in Amish Country! We spotted this ATM in Ohio. And yes it’s IN the back of a buggy.

  1. AMAZING photos Sarah!! What camera/lens did you use on your trip? It all looks so fun, but that brothel sounds interesting.

  2. This trip looks like a BLAST! I don’t do well driving long periods of time, but for something like this I could manage!! So much sun and blue skies!! Glad you guys had a great trip!

    • I tend to just fall asleep during long periods of driving, but this time we got out of the car fairly often. Not too many naps for me, but at least I saw more while traveling!
