home... between our parent's houses...

Today you get to see what it looks like when we drive from my mom's house, to Toby's parent's house. It's just over a 20minute drive. But it's scenic and beautiful. I'm sure some of these roads will all look the same to you, but I promise they're different. I've been driving this route for 10 1/2 years and I know exactly what stretch of road each photo represents.

Here we are sitting at the stop light at the end of my mom's driveway. We head right up the curvy mountain to get to Toby's parents house.

 After you get through a few of those turns, you see this big stretch of straight and hilly road. This is probably bad if you get car sick easily :)

After a few S-curves and L-shaped curves you land here:

 After that you make a hard right at a small but busy gas station and you land on this stretch of road.

...where you find this beauty...

....and this field. You see fields with horses and cows EVERY.WHERE. back home.

Nice big tall trees are everywhere you look.

After even MORE L-turns, you come to an L-turn that has this nice big drop off of a road. This used to all be gravel and dirt til a few years ago. It was OOgly when it rained when it was dirt and rocks.

Here's what it looks like after you drive down that drop off...

By this point, it's considered out in the sticks...
We pass the lovely chimney.

Shortly after this, you come upon this lovely view....

Immediately after, you come to the fork in the road... always take a left :)

You are here, looking at this stretch....

Go around this little S-curve...

Pass the old store and cellar...

Hang a left here and you are sooo close to Toby's childhood home :)

Going straight leads to an old cemetery where people are buried as early as 1897. And some are from the civil, Vietnam, and a world war. It's pretty awesome, and eerie...

Hope you enjoyed the ride :)
