Ugh, and having held out for so long against the steady barrage of colds that I’ve been exposed to this season, I have finally fallen sick. There will be no long and thought provoking piece for your reading pleasure today I’m afraid, but I couldn’t just leave you guys hanging in the wind, so how about this:
Four places I’ve traveled to in the U.S. That I really like (in no particular order):
Glacier National Park (Montana/Canada)
My family took a road trip out West when I was 15, and this was one of our destinations. Even back then I was impressed by the view on Going to the Sun road. This was also the first and last time I did a horse riding tour, more expensive and restricting than I would pay for myself now, but the countryside the trail went through was so beautiful.
Smoky Mountains National Park (Tennessee)
I finally got to go here this past September for a quick weekend of camping (this is where the picture in the post is from). There was a lot of hiking around to be done in my new fancy shoes, and yes, I got to see a black bear. Once I have my RV, I definitely plan to come back for a longer stay.
Badlands (South Dakota)
Another stop on our out West trip. I was definitely a tomboy when I was younger and loved getting to search around for fossils.
Clear Lake (near Minocqua, WI)
The state park and campground where my parents took me tent camping when I was growing up. The lake is aptly named, you could see the bottom up to 30 feet deep. Not a great place for fishing, but a lot of fun for snorkeling.
And now I’m going to make good use of the first sick day I’ve taken in over three years and get some rest. Whether you’re RVing yet or not, do you have a favorite place or destination you’d like to share?

While it may be a while yet before I get my RV, the truck I bought to tow it with has already come in handy for another use: truck camping. By this I don’t mean buying a camper that slides into the bed of a truck, but rather just sleeping in the bed of the…Read More
Last Saturday the 27th, the park closed down for the second time in three weeks due to flooding. It rained somewhere in the neighborhood of two inches that day, which is a huge deal for a desert. Again, the Trading Post flooded and the mop had to be kept handy all day for repeated clean…Read More
