I’ve been trying to do a little housekeeping around here. One of the projects I’ve been working on is to clean up, catalog and put my photos in to galleries.
With years of “stuff” piling up this is no easy task but I must admit, it is proving to be an enjoyable one. Being a sentimental fool, I love the trips down memory lane.
I came across this photo that was taken in May 2005:
The photo itself was a throwaway, most likely taken by “accident” before snapping the next photo. It was taken on a stretch of route 14/16 that was loooong and straight. I’d pulled over watching the antelope running on the side of the road.
With the years piling up in front of it – it felt good to see that little route scribbled on paper. I pulled it up on Google maps:

I can remember that day distinctly. We’d spent the night in Belle Fourche, SD after visiting Mount Rushmore and Custer. We were making our way towards Yellowstone National Park.
Following the route on my sheet we made stops at Devil’s Tower, ate gigantic pancakes at Donna’s in Moorcroft, talked to a nice Goldwing rider in Sheridan about how it might be snowing in the Big Horns where we were heading, experienced the grandeur of Shell Canyon, ate lunch in Greybull and stayed in Cody, Wyoming for the night.[smugmug url=”http://fuzzygalore.smugmug.com/hack/feed.mg?Type=gallery&Data=18642612_WRZZNz&format=rss200&x=1″]
If I hadn’t started cataloging my photos this morning, those thoughts probably would never have crossed my mind today. I’m glad they did.
How About You?
Do you love looking through your old trip photos too?
