Leaving the Tetons for Sturgis

After almost two weeks in or near Yellowstone and Teton National Parks the time had finally come for me to move on down the highway towards Sturgis (yes... I was about to brave the biker rally), but I have to admit I had a very hard time leaving this … [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...]

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...]
