We thought the trip from Temecula to Durango, CO would take 12.5 hours.
GoogleMaps told me so.
BUT IT LIED.
Instead, we drove for 16 hours. Normally, this would make me throw a tantrum (a totally reasonable and cute tantrum, btw) but Tyler and I actually had a lot of fun on our drive.
Especially during hours 12-16, when Tyler got really, really hyper, and I kid you not, was seat-dancing, very well, even using spirit fingers at times.
He makes me laugh. He makes me laugh so hard sometimes I drive off the road.
While on our voyage, we stopped at the Four Corners Monument. Haven't been there? Well, here's the low down. It's this place, in the middle of nowhere, where Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado meet together. So, I guess it's technically not the middle of nowhere.
It's really a very precise location.
But anyway, we paid our $3.00 each person entrance fee, and beelined it to the monument. We observed other weary travelers getting out their cameras and taking pictures of them in four states at once.
I noticed some of them did not pay much attention to their actual body and foot placement. The one lady in the flag shirt wasn't even touching Colorado! The man with the handlebar moustache completely ignored New Mexico and Utah!?
Psh. Our methods of touching all four states at once did not go un-noticed by our elderly tourist-friends. We even showed them how teamwork helps.
I want you to forgive me for having such wacked out double jointed elbows. And, for this picture being so small. It's better that you don't see me in this position any larger than necessary.
Check out his form. The guy is amazing.
The elderly started getting a little wild and hostile about our four corner methods. So we left. To visit:
We surveyed the stuff being sold (saled?)
And then entertained ourselves by being weird.
Nice socks, Ty.
Whelp, that's it. We drove for a few more hours and arrived in Durango just in time to have some amazing shoots with new clients.
Durango... it's mighty pretty.
