What a wonderful trip!  We made plenty of memories, but it sure feels good to be back home! 
This trip, however, it seemed like it took forever to get there!  I did, though, capture some of the scenes from the passenger seat...

Silo in the meadow

defiant of its age;
giving break from boredom and
excitement to the sage!
Miles and miles of nothing?
"NO WAY!" the pen cries out!
Miles and miles so opportune
for me to write about!

So much land yet undeveloped-
'tis a fading sight.
To the dreamer, pen and paper
what a great delight!
The intermittent whisper and
the hardiest of bird-
they, the only sounds that,
in this place, be even heard!
Oh, and that great length of metal
on those endless tracks...
listen to each one at length
and, for sure, relax!

Out here in creation-
the Father's very hand.
Oh savor His great evidence
upon the open land.
Beauty like no other,
glory, grandeur, peace;
that silo in the meadow-
His evidence release!

That silo in the meadow--the only sign of industry for miles...for hours!  But God is there in His fullness and that makes such a trip all the more wonderful!
