Modified from my old Cloos on the Loose blog, April 2013.
I am easily bored and known to spontaneously demand adventures. Well, if Michael (who I am only friends with because he takes pretty pictures of things I want to write about) didn’t know that before, he certainly learned it last night when I insisted we find some entertainment that did not involve the television.
The original plan was to drive to Wilkerson Pass to see the sunset, but we quickly realized it was too far away. With my roommate, Charlene, in tow and about 37 minutes until sunset, we drove west through the canyons and valleys of Highway 24 looking for a good spot to stop. Seeing none, we decided to stargaze instead, inadvertently kidnapping Charlene, who had left her bedroom lights on thinking we’d only be gone a few minutes.
We were gone three hours.
Charlene thought the pictures look like they could be from a car commercial and I agree, so I’m trying to persuade Michael to submit them to Honda. “Look, normal person! You, too, can do cool things with your average, every day, no-four-wheel-drive car! Be cool like us and drive a Civic.”
Maybe we’ll be famous soon. Maybe not. But it’s worth a shot, no?
