East to Wisconsin

My days at Buffalo Gap National Grassland continue to delight. I take walks along the rim and soak in the sights and sounds. There are a lot of birds out here, it’s unusual not to hear their calls. One in particular likes to perch on the sign near camp and will sing a majority of […]

Tips for Visiting Badlands National Park

Longtime readers will know that I worked at Badlands National Park in the summer of 2013. Boondocking out here the past two weeks has been fun and I’ve gone into the park a couple times. Rather than write a travelogue about where I went and what I did, which would be repeating stuff from four […]

May 14, Sunday I leave my overnight camp at Riverside Park in Douglas, WY around 10. There’s less rush this morning to get on the road because my drive is only about 180 miles and I can’t check into my campsite until noon at the earliest. I retrace my route on I25 east to Orin, […]

Traversing the Rockies

May 10, Wednesday It’s rained a rather considerable amount the last two days here near Moab, UT. This morning, camp is mud. The ground on Klondike Bluffs road is clay, and it turns into a gooey mess when wet. Soon it feels like I’m walking on platform shoes because of all the mud stuck to […]

Scenes Around Camp

Today’s one of those days when the words are slow coming. I’m still in the Moab area due to snow in the mountains. So, here’s a few more pictures from around camp. Spring may be slow in coming to the Rockies, but it’s certainly arrived here. I’m still enjoying the company of Kelly and Marshall. […]
