The End of the Road… New Beginnings, and a Lucky Shot, *Redux-Sorry

Look at this lucky shot I took of a surfer and a humpback. We are off the road and in Florida.  It’s not that we haven’t been traveling, just a different kind, by plane, like my recent trip to Hawaii.

Sometimes You Just Have to Look Down

I love wide open landscapes…sweeping vistas…big bold skies. Just look at most of my photographs if you doubt me. I’m always taken in by the grandeur before me. But, just like in life, you can’t always focus on the big picture.

Starry Starry Night

Dark, clear New Hampshire nights are a favorite time to gaze to the heavens and get lost in the vastness of the universe.  Even here in the White Mountains there is too much light pollution  to really make the Milky

Where does the time go?  The past year has gone by faster than this river. We have spent the Summer here in the White Mountain area of New Hampshire. We decided to take a rest from the Red Road and

Wrapping it All Up…LA, San Diego and a Long Ride Home

I have been very lax in posting. When last you heard we were in Paso Robles, at the end of September, enjoying a little more vino.  Here it is a month later, we are back in Florida, enjoying being in

Paso Robles: A Little more Vino and the Unimaginably Rich

I have this fascination with the lifestyles of the rich and famous…not today’s nouveau sort, I mean the old-money rich, and nothing says old money like William Randolph Hearst.  When we left Monterey and moved down to Paso Robles our

Back to the California Coast at Monterey

After several days in Yosemite, communing with nature, we looked forward to having basic services again, like water and power.  This comes with a trade off though. As we head further south along the Pacific coast we are starting to

You Can Never See Too Many Rocks: Yosemite National Park

Hubby is fond of saying, when his ADD kicks in, that  “if you’ve seen one rock, you’ve seen them all.”  Granted I have dragged him to Yellowstone, Arches, and Canyon Lands Parks, as well as the Canadian Rockies…all resplendent with

Vineyards, Mountains, Lakes and Fires: Napa Valley

We loved the coast around Mendocino and even though we had the scary drive  to get there, we enjoyed our stay. Now we were moving on, to the Napa area and a five day stay on Lake Berryessa. We were looking forward

The Road to Mendocino, scary, scary scary

We continue our trek south along the California coast.  The Crescent City/Klamath area didn’t have the rugged looks of Oregon, but we did enjoy the Redwoods.  Now we were headed to coastal Mendecino. I had called the Casper Beach RV

California: First Look at the Redwoods

Our fun Labor Day weekend over, it was time to hit the road again. We left sadly left Port Orford and continued south down highway 101, enjoying the beauty of the last 60 miles of the Oregon coast, particularly  the Cape

Labor Day in Port Orford, Oregon – a Gem of a Place

We moved down the coast from Florence, Oregon to Port Orford…a big 100 or so miles.  We had reservations in a KOA. KOA’s are never my first choice of campgrounds to stay in, usually they are more expensive because you

After spending four days on Twin Lake and four days on Lava lake, both in the middle of nowhere in the Deschutes National Forest, I was ready for the coast, for civilization, for a TV show (even a lousy summer

Twisted Sisters, Oregon- Continued

Leaving Hood River and the Columbia River Gorge we headed south towards the Cascades and the lakes to do some fishing. Our route toward Bend skirted the desert areas of Oregon. The varied terrain has been one of the most impressive

Final stop in Washington: Lakes, Logger Jamboree’s and Mt. Rainier

We are finishing up a week on Mayfield Lake in Washington, staying at Harmony Lakeside RV resort in Mossy Rock (love that name.)  It has been a fine place to relax and enjoy the nice weather we have finally settled

We have been looking forward to getting into Oregon, since so many friends have said the coast (as well as the rest of the state,) is special. We were at the southernmost end of Washington, and it was a perfect

At the Beach…Long Beach Peninsula, Washington

We began our re-entry from Canada into the U.S. on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula.   We decide to keep traveling south and see the whole coast rather than heading inland. We spent some time on the river in Hoquiam and visited

Put Them in Tree Museums…

Traveling across British Columbia, and now through Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, I’ve been thinking a lot about that old (1970?) Joni Mitchell song, Big Yellow Taxi. (You younger people can google it) The lines that keep popping into my mind: They took all
