Day 4, Sunday, 27 May – Driving to UND   Leave a comment


Today we only had a couple of miles of interstate highway driving.  Almost the whole trip was on secondary US highways and state highways.  This is my favourite kind of driving.  The scenery was mainly farmland and pastureland with a few hills here and there.  However, the mostly flat terrain was broken up by the Missouri River.  Here are some pictures.

The next picture proves that we were there   : – )

Today was a shorter day.  We spent several hours with Darlene’s daughter, Gloria, and her husband, Frank, in Longmont, Colorado.  Geri, Howard and Darlene went to North Platte’s Bailey Rairoad Yard, which is the largest railroad yard in the world.  Here are some photos Geri took from the Golden Spike Observation Tower.

Later in the day we stopped at a rest stop in New Mexico to use the bathrooms.  The buildings were up on stilts with an interesting sign.

Day 1, Thursday, 24 May – Driving to UND (part 1)   Leave a comment


Geri and I and her folks, Howard and Darlene are driving from Tucson, Arizona to Grand Forks, North Dakota.  I am teaching two translation courses – Translation of Texts and Sign Language Translation.  Today we travel along I-10 (Interstate Highway 10) eastward.  Just before crossing into New Mexico there is a very interesting geological formation in Texas Canyon.  Here are some pictures.

We have been seeing lots of flowers blooming.

BTW, I have not posted since November because my trips during that time period were mainly to sensitive countries where people have asked me not to publicise their countries.
