Toyota 20 November 2014

horsecamp2005 043I do love to come up west, hit with a view of the front range of the Rocky Mountains as the sun begins to rise on snow-capped peaks. There is a lot of snow from the last couple of storms right now and the mountains glisten with the crystal white weight of it. The photos are definitely from higher up and from countess horse pack trips I’ve been on, but the beauty is no less!

 

It calms me, even as the reason I had to venture so far from home today was not IMG_0614necessarily pleasant. 365,000 miles is unheard of on anything but a Toyota. My forest green, four-cylinder, 4-Runner is a testament to the engineering and quality that vehicles used to possess. The head gasket needs to be replaced, and I’m hoping that will keep me on the road in this ol’ reliable for a couple of more years. Toyota should really be using this vehicle in commercials and showing the amazing journey those miles tell.
