We spent the last week in an area of the country that we are getting more and more familiar with…Sikeston, MO. Continue reading “Get In My Belly! or A Week in Southeast Missouri…”
This is an ancient post that has been sitting around for a while waiting for me to finish it…it’s almost a year old, but it’s finally up and live! Sorry about the delay… Keep reading to learn a bit about Devils Tower Wyoming!! Continue reading “Devils Tower”
Next stop on our world tour took us to Big Sky County…Montana!
Next stop on our journey was another unknown…Idaho… The only thing I knew about Idaho is that they are famous for Potatoes. While that was true (along with being a huge provider of other produce as well as dairy) we discovered just how beautiful and understated the state is. Keep in mind that we only really visited the Twin Falls area, but some locals told us that the terrain is very similar across all of southern Idaho, which is officially classified as high desert (I had assumed it would be mountainous…shows what I know).

We had originally intended to stay close to the interstate in St George on the way up to Salt Lake City, but we couldn’t find any parks with availability for the entire time we needed. After much searching, we finally found a spot near Red Canyon, Utah. We set up camp for the couple weeks surrounding Memorial Day and really took advantage of the setting out in the neighborhood of Bryce Canyon National Park. Continue reading “Twice as nice in Bryce”
Our next stop on our whirlwind tour of Las Vegas took us to the Valley of Fire State Park. It’s about an hour drive north, but well worth the effort (just make sure you pack a lunch, there is NOTHING there). Continue reading “Valley of Fire”
This past week we were able to check another big one off of our todo list. We drove down to check out the Hoover Dam!
Yesterday we had a chance to visit the Red Rocks Canyon National Preserve outside Las Vegas. I’m hoping my pictures and video can do it justice, but it was and absolutely gorgeous setting. Continue reading “Red Rock Canyon”
Yesterday we had a chance to scratch something off my list. A few months ago I ran across an article about art installations in nature that you shouldn’t miss. Seven Magic Mountains was on that list and I knew we would be in the area so I added it to my todo list. It has all the basic requirements of a ‘must do’. It’s grand in scale, It’s available for a limited time (it will only be up for 2 years) and its FREE! 😉 Continue reading “Seven Magic Mountains”
This is a late post, but it’s an important one. A few weeks back we were finally able to cross something off my bucket list…we made it to the biggest hole in the ground in the USA…the Grand Canyon!
