(mini) Road Trips

by Joy Monger

I went on a mini road trip to see the aspen trees change color.  Got a soda from a little mountain gas station, opened the sun roof, bought souvenirs from the gift shop, and posed for pictures like we were tourists.

I like the way the road looks when it’s twisty and windy and you can’t see anyone in front or behind you.

I like it when strangers ask “where are you from?” because you’re having so much fun it looks like you’re on vacation.

I like picking the perfect driving music.

And I like the way driving somewhere for pleasure, feels well, pleasurable.
