I am spending a few days in Los Alamos, New Mexico and then Moab, Utah to catch my breath. It's beautiful here. Here are some photos I took during my drive up from Lubbock, Texas and while walking around town in Los Alamos.
The open road ahead. Insert metaphysical hand-wavy quote here about the winding road being an embodiment of my five month journey.
Same location shot from another angle. She's gettin' a little dirty.
The landscape shifts from completely flat in the Texas Panhandle to starting to have some hills. A little difficult to see in this shot.

A beautiful day...
...shifted suddenly into an eerie, ominous day. I thought I was going to find out if the S2000 still had the chops to outrun a tornado.
The terrain became noticeably different while in New Mexico. Flat land gave way to hills and mountainous areas in the distance.
After a little further on the drive the weather became beautiful again.
Just outside of Los Alamos I took my favorite shot of the trip so far.
Another shot of the amazing view.
Not pictured: steep drop into oblivion.
Good thing it wasn't icy on the way up or I might not be around to snap these shots.
This is a shot from today at Ashley Pond in Los Alamos.

Asshole geese were being loud.

If you live around the Rocky Mountains, I hope you never get tired of this view or take it for granted. Amazing.
