    Spring snow flurries marked our meandering journey through Yellowstone's Lamar Valley. As I stepped out of our mobile luxury, I caught Courtney peeking out from the warmth. The juxtaposition of the two roads (one real, one painted) makes this one of my favorite pictures.The distinct line of the RV's rear distorts reality, as if it were two stitched images, but truth is told in the reflective snow covered conifers in the window. Upon return to our day to day, a road trip seems all but a dream.

    When I first saw this shot I thought our servers had corrupted the image. But then I remembered the mural-covered RVs I have seen out on the highway and realized this was no trick, just a very good job of seeing. The winter scene here is a perfect counterpoint to the sunny, optimistic mural.
