Take a Road Trip with a Twist

All of the above photos were taken with my point and shoot camera from the car window. We were just passing through the Central Valley in California, headed towards Woodland. Indeed, it is an enormous valley, with tons of grape vineyards, nut groves, and cattle. The only thing that is missing is water and the lack of it.

Rare Bird: LadyD Books
For Foto Friday
The photo theme this week is "feathers or fur." I recently posted beautiful red and blue parrots for Wordless Wednesday. Today's photo is another bird pic from the Safari Park. Love the graceful body and neck, adorned with royal plumage!

"The next time you take off on a family trip, why not take a covered wagon instead of a car? Or do a bike tour, with no car involved? You could even go on foot and have a llama carry your stuff for you."
-- 101 things you gotta do before you're 12! Joanne O'Sullivan

Some Inspiration For Your Vacation:

1. LLAMA TREK
2. FAMILY LEARNING VACATION
    (art, music, sailing, archeology or horseback riding)
3. ROOTS TRIP
    (places where your ancestors came from)
4. VOLUNTEER TRIP
    (help save turtles, rebuild a trail)
5. ECO VACATION
    (rain forest, Everglades, coral reef, the Arctic)
6. COVERED WAGON TRIP
7. CLIPPER SHIP CRUISE
8. FARM STAY OR DUDE RANCH

Next road trip, when I'm not on a time crunch, I think I'll step outside the car and take some photos with the Nikon D200! lol
