Achievement Unlocked: Two 16+ Hour Drives in One Week

This is just going to be a big gallery from the trip between Wimberley, TX and Golden, CO. Not much happened on the way.

Driving at 5am
The trip started out dark and scary, with lots of fog.

So this is Christmas!
Super fog
A little after this, I took over driving and got my first speeding ticket. Just a PSA – make sure you slow down on those Texan highways when you drive through a small town!

I know people hate out-of-the-car shots, but I couldn’t help it. We were getting to New Mexico right around 3:30pm and as always, New Mexico delivers an amazing sky.
