“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
I’m a sucker for a good mountain hike and totally jive with that John Muir quote. A couple of weeks ago, when we discovered the Virginia Lakes hike in the northern section of 395 we were so ecstatic we ended up [...]
Well what can I say. We got the new Sleep Number bladder, inflated the bed and just like that Paul found himself out of the crypt and level with the world….Yeeeehaaaa! After almost 2 weeks of sleeping in the dumps it was skip-around-the-RV-frikkin’ miraculous! I no longer have to peer into the depths to find him and I [...]
We’ve made it to the Sierra’s and the show is about to begin! The weather is crisp and bright, the lakes are brilliant blue, the mountains bold and beautiful and the aspens are about the make their grand exit in a brilliant display of yellows and orange.

I must excuse our lack of be
‘Coz hiking off we’ve gone, you see
Flowers bloom and mountains call

Nice sites for a forest campground. All are primitive (no hookups) spacious, [...]
If you folks think we’ve been wasting away the past few days by playing and frolicking around in the forest you would be…errmm well…correct.
It was a long and windy trail…a reaaaallly long and windy trail. In fact, for those with the gumption to do it, the Appalachian Trail is an impressive 2,179 miles (3,507 km) long and follows the rim of the Appalachian mountains from Georgia to Maine. More than just a day-stroll, it usually takes an [...]
One thing I’ve always loved about travelling is the surprise of it all. Despite a few years of experience (on my part), a spattering of gray hairs (that would be my hubby) and living life with the gusto of enduring youth, I still manage to learn a few things along the way.
A drive into [...]
I’ve always loved the mountains. When I was a kid I thought they bought me to the top of the world. I still get that same feeling of awe when I stand atop the peaks. The horizon seems to fall away to infinity, your world is opened and a flood of impressions fall in place [...]
