Inside: Bus 804

This bus slowly maneuvered the passage along the Needles Highway in South Dakota and with breath-taking awe didn’t get stuck!  This area is famous for rock climbing on granite needle-like peak formations along the highway.   I count myself lucky to often be in the right place at the right time and this was no exception.  You may even notice that there are people standing on the granite ledges above the bus to the left and directly above.

I was lucky enough to be on the ground on the approach.  Then mostly, bold enough to weave my way through several other onlookers and picture takers to get to the front and take this shot.  I don’t think the driver had more than an inch or two to spare on either side of the bus.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

      Oh, you are so right. I hadn’t thought about that. I bet they started with the old Greyhound buses and then just got bigger and.. Bigger.. and BIGGER..

      Thanks. It probably took him at least 20 minutes to get through the tunnel and he had to pull in his mirror for the last bit.
