Default Diagonal Away from Home

We were on the taxiway, waiting clearance to take off.
The flaps were up, the canopy closed. The long, asphalt runway stretched off to either side.
I had my sunglasses and iPad.
Bright October sun warmed the cockpit.
I was happy I?d worn a t-shirt. I was wearing the pink Love at First Flight shirt Roy bought for me at EAA Airventure. It felt appropriate for the first flight of our open ended journey.

What a beautiful story and photo. It almost looks like it was taken N of Denver. Where was it?
