Almost Road Trip Time!

It's almost time to hit the road- one more day of packing and organizing. 1289 miles to Durango, Colorado.
I'm looking forward to heading down the highway. The first days' goal is Boise, Idaho, but we'll see if I really feel like driving 10 hours. I want to get as close to Salt Lake City as possible because that is Monday's destination.
I really like SLC so we're going to stay there a day and do some exploring.
Tuesday, the journey continues through Utah, down some 2 lane highways, through the desert and heat, stopping in Moab and Arches, and finalling in Durango.

I decided for our trip we needed an extra special travel journal/ sketchbook. I had this fabric signature and sewed in some paper ( and my sewing machine needle somehow made it through all these layers mostly with ease). We can jot down fun things from the trip and sketch scenes. There are some pockets to keep mementos like menus, receipts, postcards, etc.




I will take photos of our book when we get back too. And, of course, photos from the trip!
See you soon!
