The disconnect from technology makes us more receptive, I think, to visiting the unexpected draws. After passing by the Hole N” the Rock earlier, our appetite for the extraordinary is sharpened; so, when we see roadside signs to a dinosaur museum, we decide to follow them. I’ve been to many dinosaur museums, and this one is organized very well. Each room showcases creatures from a different era. We take many photos, including the requisite pose of being chased by a Velociraptor. Kristy purchases her obligatory souvenir from the gift shop—a little Triceratops—that becomes our mascot on the dashboard.
We have a fascination with dinosaurs.
We say goodbye to the old bones, get back on the road, and try to remember the Seven New Wonders of the World. I think passing time in a car spurs unique challenges and random trivia.
The temptation to use Google sets in. The struggle is real. We guess the Colosseum, Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu, and the Grand Canyon, knowing some are incorrect. It might even be the eight wonders! We don’t know. After a while, we give up and enjoy the scenery.
Don’t you go reaching for your phone to find the Seven Wonders! It’s okay not to know. Go with the flow, and drive on with us. There can be life without the instant answers we are all so accustomed to Google providing us.
