A Note from the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Pole Bending - Weston St - Pea Ridge, Arkansas

 Unheard of in my world.

Pole Bending - Weston St - Pea Ridge AR - a.d. elliott

OMG Mom!  

I was much too sheltered growing up, I had no idea there was such a thing as this.

This is a pole bending competition at the Pea Ridge Mule Jump - in the South, as a game, mules are made to run through an obstacle course.

I have finally found a way to use the word "irascible" in a sentence.  Mules are irascible.
It is the perfect word to describe them.

I suspect this will turn out to be quite an entertaining event.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Is That A Ghost? - HWY 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Eerie and unexpected.
This was a little creepy Mom - 
I was wandering through the forest, getting pictures of leaves, moss, and squirrels etc and when I started processing this image I noticed the shadow.
I *think* (hope) it is simply motion blur from the wind, otherwise, Whispy and I were nose to nose.
I suppose it is almost Halloween.

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Nevada - Naked Strip - Las Vegas Blvd - Las Vegas NV

Look, Mom! No cars!

Some months ago I had made plans to run the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon just to get this picture Mom.
Due to some unforeseen training issues (otherwise known as not training enough) I had to pass on running it.  We had thought to cancel the trip, but after #VegasStrong we made sure we came.
I was able to get the picture I wanted and I saw the race from the sidelines.
Next year!

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Colorado - Towing Capacity - I 70 - Eastern Colorado Plains

T The little Prius that could?

Did you know your Prius can tow Mom?
I am actually really shocked.  I had no idea that a Prius had that kind of gumption.
My hat is off for these totally fuel efficient travelers.
Bonus points for their groovy bike.
