This is the post excerpt.
As many people in the South, I have been stuck at home this week, in cold rainy weather and it has left me longing for winter in Arizona. We visited a few areas around Phoenix last winter and discovered what I feel like I was actually meant to be.........retired. Seriously though, I completely understand why … Continue reading Arizona Winter – Desert Beauty & American Ruins
As we approach what is normally considered the "off season" for camping and tourist destinations I thought I would share my experience of visiting Carlsbad New Mexico and Carlsbad Caverns National Park in March 2022, as precautionary tale for anyone who, like me, thinks it would be better to go when there are less people. … Continue reading Carlsbad in the Off Season
I can't believe it's been a year since I upgraded from my NuCamp T@G to the NuCamp T@B 320, but more importantly, I can't believe it's been 9 months since I wrote about travel and camping. It hasn't been from a lack of adventures because we have made multiple trips in the new T@B and … Continue reading A Year In the T@B and Many Adventures
As I end 2021, I reflect on how different things are from this time last year. Even though there is another strong wave of Covid across the world and the economy is still not in a great place, thankfully, I am in a better place. Because of that I will get to start a new … Continue reading New Year! New Teardrop!
When I was in Arizona I stumbled upon one of the most interesting historic sites I've been too, but had never heard of, Walnut Canyon National Monument. It is actually a National Park and you can get in free with a National Parks pass, but not what you think of being called a "monument." Surprisingly … Continue reading Walnut Canyon Arizona – Unexpected Ruins in the US
While on my Southwest trip I spent a week in Flagstaff Arizona. Part of the goal was to visit The Grand Canyon again but I also wanted to visit some of the other area attractions I didn't have time for the last time I was there. Flagstaff has a special meaning because it's really where … Continue reading Arizona – So Much More Than Desert
While I was in Utah I did spend a lot of my time at Arches National Park, but I stayed that week in Moab and also visited other attractions in the area. It was a little bit different type of stay than I normally do, but it was nice. I stayed at the Canyonlands RV … Continue reading Moab Utah – The Desert in August
In August of 2021 I finally made it Utah to see some of the National Parks that have been on my bucket list. I knew about the vastness of Canyonlands and that it's on a scale with the Grand Canyon, but I was not prepared for how unique and beautiful The Arches is. While it … Continue reading The Arches National Park
If you have been a long time reader of this blog, you know I love architecture, so even though the Mandy Lea photography workshop was primarily waterfalls and wild flowers, I was happy we had part of a day shooting at the ghost town of Animas Forks, outside of Silverton Colorado. Like most of the … Continue reading Animas Forks Colorado Ghost Town
I will start with the fact that I had every intention of keeping up with blog posts on the road, but the reason I didn't is actually a good thing. Traveling and working has been a great experience and I am increasingly happy that I get this opportunity. That being said, I did stay very … Continue reading Fastest Route To Colorado and Blog Posts Improvements
