Driving, Hiking, and Sleeping under the Stars

Willa & her friend Liz in Utah

Here’s Willa, walking out of the canyons of Utah, facing into the light.  I swear she looks taller than when she left home just 2 1/2 weeks ago.  And certainly happier.  So here goes:  All of you who reassured me about Willa’s travel plans, who reminded me that Willa is talented, strong, resourceful, and capable of handling herself on the road — you were right.  It really was time to let her go.  Thank you.

Willa’s had a cool trip up to Canada, out to Mount Rushmore and into the Badlands, driving, hiking, and sleeping under the stars.  And I’ve loved the armchair journey from Brooklyn.  Today, she’s driving through Reno, Nevada, heading for San Francisco.  I can practically taste the sourdough bread.  Stay tuned . . .
