Although this post is dated July 26, this little blog documents our holiday trip June 30 - July 3, 2006. We just wanted to get out of town (country) for the big blowout 4th. It really was a long drive. 515.74 miles, to be exact. Mapquest said we could make the trip in 8 hours and 38 minutes. On the drive there, we were flush with happiness for our little getaway and since the holiday traffic wasn't as awful as we expected, we had a pretty good time.

We listened to music through the iPod, iTunes, and the Bose, plugged into the cigarette lighter and booming from the backseat. Laptop on my lap:

Long drive, and of course Marc drove the whole way:

Our journey began:

I like big skies, especially if they hold magnificently lit clouds, like these.

Holiday traffic wasn't really all that bad -- just normal stuff up to and just past Albany, but then it cleared right up.

Adirondacks straight ahead. Scenic splendor.

Adirondackian Bridge. I just made that up.

Last exit -- already the bilingual life begins:

And here we are at the border! O Canada.
