It’s a joy to road trip. Reminds me of college days, when things were carefree, and you could just take off for a weekend, or a week for that matter, and just explore. We were driving down the 5 when overhead there was a formation of birds… then there was another, and another. “Man that’s a lot of birds!” we exclaimed… And they just kept coming and coming and coming.
Lucky for me we had a sunroof, and I wasn’t driving at the time. And with 1000’s of migrating birds taking to the skies above us, I had just enough time to fire off a few shots of them and the hot air balloons floating in the sky. It was a halcyon day for sure.
