Summer road trip stories: Taking silly vacation pictures
Written by Robert Niles
We're getting through the winter by remembering some warm thoughts of summer. Travel with us on a family road trip vacation.Tweet
One great part of the fun of a road trip is finding excuses to take silly pictures. See a goofy sign? An inexplicable sculpture? Stop the car and get out the camera. Hey, it breaks up the monotony of the road and gives everyone a chance to stretch their legs, and their smiles.
So we had to take a picture of... this, outside Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon.
Apologies if this is supposed to be something profoundly serious. We didn't find a plaque, and the kids simply decided to have fun with it.
Speaking of Powell's, if you love reading as I and my family do, try to schedule a visit to the world's largest independent book store some day.
With the store filling an entire city block, you might want to invest in a loaf of bread to drop a trail of crumbs to find your way back once Powell's one-million-plus volumes lure you deep within.
If any Portland visitors or residents want to chime in about Powell's, the comments await. Otherwise, I'd love to hear about your favorite wacky vacation photo stories.
