Happy Monday, Renegades of the Road, and Welcome to WEEK 5 of the AMB Blog Tour!!! It’s Day 21 and the start of our last week of the tour. Ten more beautiful States to visit and Ten more awesome bloggers to meet! So with mocha latte double shot espresso in one hand, and the wheel in the other, let’s kick it into high gear and begin the last leg of our road trip! Yee-haw!
Our First Stop of Day 21, has the State motto, ‘Oro y Plata’, or Gold & Silver. That can only mean we must be headed to the ‘Treasure State’. And rightfully so, since the Yogo Sapphire hailing from this State is the only North American gem to be included in the Crown Jewels of England. The ‘Crown Jewel of the Continent’, otherwise known as Glacier National Park, is located in our next State, too. Besides all of the natural scenic beauty that’s abundant here, did I mention Yellowstone National Park is located in the southern part and was the first national park in the country? This State sure has a ‘wild’ side to it. It’s not just the cowboys that call this a ‘capitol’, too. In this State, the elk, deer, and antelope populations outnumber the humans! And the grizzly bear population is the largest out of all the other States in the Lower 48. It’s name is derived from the Spanish word for ‘mountain’, and hopefully that has clued you in…we’re headed to Big Sky Country….welcome to Montana! Please meet Wendy and visit her blog, Why Knot Kwilt , to see what license plate block she has created!
Moving right along, to the west, we’ll ‘hop’ across one of the States we visited earlier in our tour and head to our Second Stop of Day 21. Our next destination is a bit of a homecoming for us. We’ll hafta stop by our office and warehouse in Seattle to say hi, of course! But along the way, we’ll shall catch a salmon from the fish mongers at Pike Place, load up on apples at the plentiful orchards around here, and get a refill on our latte from Starbucks, which just happens to be based in this State. And if our car decides it can’t take any more miles on our road trip, no worries. We could always board a plane….there are plenty of those around thanks to Boeing. Do I really need to say more? Welcome to wonderful Washington, home of the 2014 Superbowl winners, the Seahawks, and how could we forget– home to Clothworks, manufacturer of American Made Brand fabrics! Without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to the very talented Anita! Check out her blog, Bloomin’ Workshop, to see what lovely license plate block she has created!
Day 21 is over and done with, and only 4 more days to go on the AMB Blog Tour. Come back tomorrow to see what fun we’ll be in store. See you then!!
