Leaving Sacramento, we hit Interstate 5 heading home when we saw it. A huge field of sunflowers.
We instantly pulled off the freeway and wound through the farm roads to this field of happiness.
I think it completely impossible to feel sad when looking at the face of a sunflower. How about you?
We were there for almost two hours taking pictures, leaving only when the light became too harsh to photograph.
I love the boldness of this flower, standing tall and saying with all its beauty revealed, I am here!
It was the perfect ending to our road trip adventure.
Our road trip ended in June and I’m still thinking about that field of sunflowers.
I’m planning on printing some of these images and hanging them in our hallway. Should be a welcome sight in the middle of winter when everything outside is gray and cold.
Many thanks to all of you for coming along on our road trip. It brought joy to my heart to share it with you.
Today rings in the first day of Autumn. Wow how the summer has flown by.
Have a great week,
