This post has nothing to do with pie

I got back late last night from a much needed weekend getaway out west. Southwest, to be more specific. I had the pleasure of taking a mini round-trip road trip from Denver, CO to Albuquerque, NM, and filled my five days with beautiful vistas, rising mountains, kitschy travel lodge signs, and endless and empty roads. After many (many) months of not leaving the overcrowded and often really smelly subways and streets of New York, this was a much needed respite. I was able to find some pie (that'll be discussed and dissected in a later post), but I basically spent the time flipping through magazines, enjoying the unraveling scenery and taking a bajillion photos. Here are some of my favorites :)

Disclaimer: It was unfortunately and uncharacteristically cloudy for the first two days of the road trip, so I took that opportunity to experiment with some fun photo filters. The following pictures were taken with my iPhone and edited with the pretty fantastic PhotoToaster app.

Not sure if/when we actually drove on this road, but I took a picture nonetheless

So pretty

Endless road.

Mountains help to pass the time
