Leaving Moab was hard, there was still so much we wanted to see! Guess, we'll just have to plan another trip, right? Right!! We left Moab to go to our next stop at Bear Lake, UT. We'll take day trips into Logan, UT to see where I went to college, Utah State University. I spent… Continue reading Bear Lake and Logan UT, here we come!!
Still in Moab, UT and we found ourselves on a 2 1/2 hour horseback ride through Canyonlands. It's so hard to express the beauty of this land. It's like nothing you've ever seen with the red rock canyon walls and the oxidization turning some of the walls black. They look like cast iron grills laid… Continue reading Yippee Ki Yi Yay – horseback riding in Canyonlands!
A nice calm float trip and a cool refreshing dip in the Colorado River.
How do you plan your travel days as you move from camp site to camp site?
We spent our last few days in Colorado Springs exploring even more than we had previously. And it was wonderful. We went through the Garden of the Gods again and stopped at the Visitor Center. It's a great source of information about the area. But watch out for dinosaurs. They are hungry and really… Continue reading Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Cripple Creek, and the Anasazi-Manitou Cliff Dwellers.
Our last day in the Black Hills had us stopping in Deadwood and Lead. Both towns are famous for different things. You may have heard of Deadwood from the HBO series, and most of the people in that series really existed. But perhaps Deadwood is best known for Wild Bill Hickock and Jack McCall. Deadwood… Continue reading Last stop in the Black Hills – Deadwood and Lead (pronounced LEED)
Oops, part of my post got published before I was ready. Dang-nabbit (that's a way to express displeasure that I reconnected with in South Dakota). Somehow or other as I was saving this draft, the post went ahead and published and I wasn't done yet. Good grief ... what a novice error to make. I… Continue reading Custer State Park, Tatanka, Needles Highway – wow … just wow!!! (and the problems with hitting “publish” before you’re ready to post)
Henry our jackalope is in heaven. He went out with some of his long lost buddies last night and had a grand old time. He stayed out a little too late last night and paid for it this morning. But he was excited to see his old buddies. Jackalopes don't keep track of years like… Continue reading Jackalope Herd and Custer SD in the Black Hills
We left Island Park bright and early Saturday morning (7:00 AM to be exact), gassed up and started our trip to Greybull WY where we plan to spend one night on our way to the Black Hills in SD. We've been to Yellowstone before but went toward the south end of the park and continued… Continue reading Yellowstone, Buffalo vs Bison, Greybull, WY and National Dog Day.
Yup, we're in Island Park, ID visiting a dear, dear friend from my home town in Sioux Falls, SD. Funny story, we both grew up in SD, both went to the same high school (go Washington Warriors!!!) but didn't actually meet until we were in college and living next door to each other in the… Continue reading Island Park, ID – 33 mile Main Street, Mesa Falls and a long lost friend
