Y Mountain and an "elbow light" (not THE "top-of-an-elbow light")When we go anywhere, we have a set series of landmarks---some of them I don't know why exactly they became landmarks---that we always notice and comment on. If we fail to notice them, when the omission is realized, crying ensues.
This is how we experience a trip to Grandma's house.
"Hanger restaurant." (I think it is actually a dry cleaning place---has a picture of a hanger on it.)
"The Super Tunnel Carwash."
"Tiny temple" (far away).
Hang Gliders (seasonal).
Windmills. (Note if turning or not turning.)
Lighthouse and "what-is-that-mountain-called-again?" ["Mt. Rushmore"]
"Smoke going up up up."
"Big spiders. Big Hat."
"Top-of-an-elbow light." (?? I don't understand this one either---but it is NOT TO BE MISSED.)
"The lots-of-windmills" (very far away).
"Tavernacle." (not the Salt Lake City bar of the same name)
"New brushes carwash." ("Can we go see the old brushes carwash?" "No.")
Can you follow our route? Do your children note the same landmarks? (Our alternate route includes: "Factory with the explosion" and "arms". In the summer, all routes include Sprinklers of Note.)
