Taos, New Mexico — 1000 years of history

We did take a break from eating our way around Santa Fe and made a day trip to the Taos Pueblo. Taos itself is a pretty, artsy town with lots of shops and galleries to explore  but we were there to see

Sante Fe, New Mexico: Hello green chile

Leaving the Big Texan behind us, we headed for  Santa Fe. We knew it would be better than Amarillo, we had already found no less than a haf-dozen Diners, Drive-ins and Dives recommendations nearby. If nothing else we will eat

Eat Mor Cowz…West Texas, Route 66 and the “Big Texan”

So I hope you all enjoyed our caravan trip down the Baja to Cabo San Lucas and back. 28 days of crazy roads, breath taking scenery and great mexican food. Despite the road situation, we loved the Baja. We weren’t thrilled

A Happy, Peaceful, New Year to All

Our RV is off the road, resting in Florida right now, and will be until we head west in April.  I thought this photo I took last week on our holiday visit with friends in upstate New York evoked all

Post-Sandy New York, a Tale of Two Cities

Talk about timing. Other than one household problem after another, things had been pretty quiet here in Florida since we returned from our five-month sojourn in the RV to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Too quiet for me.  So

Life Off The Red Road

I have been pondering why life off the road seems to consume so much time previously used for such worthwhile pursuits as blogging regularly about our travels and keeping up with my reading and conversations with blogger friends around the

Ending it all in Ensenada

Today we arrived in Ensenada. We bypassed it on our way south, but now we will spend our last three days here. We got to the RV resort  and were pleasantly surprised. It is a lovely resort with a restaurant,

Retracing Our Steps North

Our RV caravan down the Baja is coming to a close. Our last stop is Ensenada, near the border, where we will spend our final few days, have a farewell dinner then head back to the good old US of

Backtracking to Santispac

We don’t usually backtrack, but we had been unable to get into Santispac for some beach camping on our way north from Cabo  so we went to Mulegé first. There is a caravan that is leaving Santispac by 9 AM,

If it is Monday it must be Mulegé

It’s a short 85 miles from Loreto to Mulegé today. It’s a winding road through the peninsula and back to the Bay of Conception. The road hugs the shore. The beach camps are beautiful: El Requeson, Hotel and Playa Buenaventura,

San Javier Mission – Accomplished

Hubby was up at 5:30 to leave for his fishing trip. He never has a problem rising and shining when there are fish involved. I got up early also to do some work online before our trip up into the

Loreto, Better the Second Time Around

Filled with all the sights and sounds of Cabo San Lucas, it was time for the caravan to begin its return north. The return trip hits some of the spots we stopped at on the way down, but also adds

Everything is “Almost Free” in Cabo San Lucas

It’s only 100 miles today from La Paz to our end destination, Cabo San Lucas. We passed through the usual inland terrain of hills and farms; at Todos Santos we moved back to hug the coast. We did not stop

Escaping the Caravan, a Side Trip to La Ventana

We left at 7 am. We faced a 220-mile drive, so it would be a long day. Leaving Loreto, we hugged the coast before turning inland through some real pretty mountains. After a 15-minute break we drove an 80-mile stretch

Wasting Away in Margaritaville (actually, Loreto)

  Finally, no 7 AM start. This has been one downside of traveling in a caravan. You have to go when they do. No deciding to walk the beach and get a later start, or to spend an extra day

  It was dark and foggy as we lined up at 7 am to leave Guerrero Negro.  These early starts don’t leave any time for our usual morning walks. Combine that with all the Mexican meals we are eating and

One last peek at the foliage, New York’s Adironacks

We moved northwest of where we were in New Hampshire to get a peek at the foliage of the Adirondack’s in upstate New York. Adirondack Park is 6 million acres of land, lakes, rivers and streams, with the Adirondack Mountains

Whale Watching in Guerrero Negro

Hubby prepared for today’s anticipated white-knuckle driving with half a Zanex. We left the boulders of Catavina, entered a small mountain pass and headed across a high mesa that is a remnant of a dry lakebed. The roads are 9.5
