Monday, we drove through Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas. It was a LONG day. We finally stopped around 10pm and got a hotel in the middle of Kansas. If you haven't been to Kansas, you aren't missing much. Kansas was hot and boring to drive through. We did however see more cows than I ever imagined. So, we tucked in to a hotel and promptly passed out for the evening.
Tuesday, we decided to drive a few hours less (8 hours instead of 11). This ended up being a good idea because neither of us had ever driven through the Rocky Mountains before. The mountains were breathtaking and we were able to get some amazing photographs. However, the mountains were VERY scary to drive through so we are now hiding in our hotel room kissing the ground. Hopefully, we can post more pictures in the near future.
