Side Trip… Mount Robson and Kinney Lake

It is amazing to me that I am still so far behind on journaling my travels here on my site. Granted I’ve been very busy with other things, but a big part of my delay is that I had so many tremendous experiences in Canada! Where I typically … [Read more...]

More of Jasper National Park

After so many days of rain leading up to my arrival I was grateful as can be to wake up to blue skys and sunshine on my second morning in Jasper National Park! Since I had no hook-ups where I was camped, and knew that I would not be able to take my … [Read more...]

Banff National Park (part 2)

Banff National Park has been on my “must see” list for as long as I can remember. It was at the top of the list when planning my long journey through western Canada, with Lake Louise the first sub-heading under it. As of the end of my … [Read more...]

There Are Mountains in Georgia!!!

Wow! I can't believe it's been a month since I rolled out of Florida and into Georgia. I've been saving up my Georgia experiences thinking it would be easy to condense them into one blog post, but I found myself enjoying the state so much I stayed … [Read more...]

The Journey Continues… One Year Later

I have to admit it boggles my mind… that I’ve been out here, on my own, traveling across this great nation… for a year! And what’s maybe even more interesting is that I haven’t grown tired of it yet. By the end of the year I will slow my pace … [Read more...]

Pure Michigan- The Upper Peninsula (part two)

Before I get into my remaining tales from the Upper Peninsula, I have to apologize for the size of these two posts. If they load slowly for you it's because of the sheer volume of images. I whittled them down as best I could, leaving out many I would … [Read more...]

Pure Michigan- The Upper Peninsula (part one)

I can't remember when I first set my sights on finding my way to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Years ago I heard how remote it is... how pristine and beautiful... green and lush... surrounded by water. I'm sure my roots in Washington play a part … [Read more...]

To Michigan via The Windy City

After saying goodbye to my dear friends at the “Berg Farm” (as they affectionately and appropriately call their home) I headed south through Illinois to Indiana Dunes State Park at the south end of Lake Michigan. It was mostly city driving, and … [Read more...]

Downtime in Wisconsin

My four hundred mile drive from Bayfield to Brookfield went by in a blur of beautiful countryside, lakes, rivers, barns and small towns. I remember little else except how anxious I was to see my girl. I know it was not easy for Elissa to watch as I … [Read more...]

Catching Up With Family from Nebraska to Wisconsin

At the time of this writing I'm sitting along a lovely shoreline on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, looking out the windows of my motorhome at perfection... blue skies filled with dramatic clouds... and wanting so badly to go out and play. The last … [Read more...]

The Tetons… Way Beyond Grand

At the end of my last post I was just arriving at the base of the Tetons by way of the Snake River and Jackson. I came through this very same place last fall, during the baby steps of my journey. Back then I was still learning the ins and outs and … [Read more...]

I Could Call This Place Home

Anyone who's been following my blog for awhile knows of my infatuation with Colorado. In my earlier years it was skiing the dry Colorado snow that drew me here in the winter. Later it was to reconnect with friends I'd met while traveling who happen … [Read more...]

Captivated by Colorado

At this very moment I'm enjoying a lovely sunrise in Utah. I'm also making a promise to myself to get caught up with my writing so that I'm not having to dig so far back in my memories in order to share them. I wish I could put to pen, the … [Read more...]

To Durango and Beyond

After hovering in Westcliffe, visiting old friends and making new ones, and enjoying some heartwarming animal encounters, it was time to shove off and continue on my journey. I couldn't leave town before visiting the Paca Peace Farm though. I went to … [Read more...]

Road Trip!

I know. You're all thinking LIFE is a road trip for me, right? It's true, but as I've mentioned many times, I can't stop at some of the most beautiful places along the way while driving "The Beast", and there are some places ya just can't get to in a … [Read more...]

Colorado… Too Much of a Good Thing???

I can't believe how far behind I am on blogging! Not that it's been all that long since I last wrote, but I have an over-abundance of stories and images to share and my days have been far too full of fun and friends and beauty and adventure and dogs … [Read more...]

Elissa Joins the Journey

I have been full time on the road for more than nine months now, and still the hardest part of the journey is being away from my daughter. For those of you who are newcomers to this blog, the idea for this journey began as my daughter, Elissa, … [Read more...]

Two Days of Rock and Roll (day 1)

Serious play on words, but I’ve never seen so many big ROCKS before in my life, and I saw them all as I was ROLLING down the road. Well, I hiked to some, but I had to roll to get there. Thus the title of this post. I saw so many amazing sights in … [Read more...]

Still High In/On the Rockies

I've been in Colorado for more than three weeks now, and it almost feels as though I've moved here.  It's strange to be away from my RV for this long, but I am glad I decided to leave it behind in Sedona. Although most of the roads have been clear, I … [Read more...]
