Trip to Elberta

When I woke up this morning I thought that I would be checking into the office around noon and working until five. Isn̢۪t it interesting how our plans change? The more time I spent home, the easier it was to decide that today would be a day off. I have put in my obligatory twenty hours, and it was time to go and have some fun. Yes, this week has been very photographic. Perhaps I have photography on the brain, but it has been entertaining for me and something to break up the monotony. Today I convinced my little sister that she needed to go on a journey with me. She agreed, and after running an errand with her friend we were in my car an on our way to Elbera, Utah, where a co-worker informed me that I would find a very interesting gas station with an old fashioned pump. Above you see one of the artifacts from the journey. It was a good drive on a very cold day. It was nice to get out of town for a little bit, even if it was only a four hour round trip. There is something unique and wonderful about seeing places that you have never been, and experiencing what appears to be a life very different from the life lived in suburbia.
