Remember in this post when I mentioned that the very first stop on our roadtrip was a ghost town in Utah but my film photos didn't turn out so hot, and I wasn't exactly pleased with my digital ones either but maybe the photos really aren't that bad but are kind of overshadowed by the photos I am really pleased with from the trip? Yeah, that! I went back through all of the photos, edited them, and actually ended up really liking them. So, here are my photos from Cisco, Utah.
According to what I could find in my brief attempt at figuring out what happened to this town, Cisco was settled in the 1880's and served as water-refilling station for the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. Cisco met it's demise when diesel and electric locomotives superseded the steam locomotive. The town is only mere minutes off the highway so vandals rapidly accelerated the town's journey into decrepitude. And perhaps it will mean more to you than it will to me, but Cisco was featured in Thelma and Louise, as well as Vanishing Point. Neither are movies special to me, but I can definitely appreciate the fact that might be why someone would be interested in this place.

I still hard time believing this really happened. Not just our amazing luck of finding a ghost town at sunrise the very first morning on the road, but the whole trip in general. When I think about it for too long I get a little teary eyed. That was honestly one of the best weeks of my life thus far. I don't know, maybe it's not really everyone's thing but if ever ever ever get the chance to spend a week exploring somewhere with someone you love or even by yourself, DO IT.

196 : 365 I've been wanting to take a picture of my bike in front of this door for a while now. Guess I kind of thought my bike was bigger? Or maybe that the door wasn't so huge? Hah! Whatever, enjoy.
197 : 365 The sweetest kitties in the world.
198 : 365 My mom came out and spent the day with me. We shopped, we looked for beach glass, and we layed in bed and talked about traveling. It was a lot of fun.
199 : 365 Never too big to be a lap dog...
200 : 365 Wearing silly glasses in exchange for crackers...
201 : 365 Did a tiny bit of rearranging...
202 : 365 Biked 20 hot, sweaty miles and felt wonderful afterward!

dress - Modcloth
necklace - c/o Rings&Tings
camera bag - Jo Totes

This is the third time this dress has been featured on the blog. It's actually kind of strange how long this dress has managed to stay in my collection of dresses considering it isn't black and white striped. Something about it though, I just can't part with it. Seems I can't part with that one leg bent behind the other pose either. Haha!

I can't believe it's almost August already! It's also officially my birthday week! This year is flying by so quickly, isn't it? The weather seems like it might be cooling down a little bit, or maybe we're just having a good week. I missed wearing sweaters. Not that this one is heavy or anything, but it does feel nice. I'm dreading winter and being stuck inside (and not riding my bike!!) but if it could stay like this forever, I'd be okay with that.
