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. […]

Arches National Park, UT (part 2)

April 27, Thursday At 7:02 am, Marshall, Kelly, and I are through the fee booth and into Arches NP for our hiking excursion. Because of repaving, the park is closed overnight on weekdays right now. The gates open at 7 am, so we’re among the first ten or fifteen cars into the park. Our destination […]

Aaand more me and Kelly being silly

Arches National Park, UT (part 1)

April 21, Friday Well, I’ve been in Moab, UT for a week. Probably about time to drive into Arches, huh. At least I’m doing better than Kelly and Marshall, who have been in the area for nearly a month and haven’t been yet, other than our walk in near camp. We pile into Marshall’s Jeep […]

Tower Arch

April 13, Thursday It’s another travel day, goodbye Valley of the Gods! Before noon I’m passing through Bluff, UT, the cute little town that I’ve been utilizing for laundry and showers while in the area. If you get the chance, stop at the Twin Rocks Trading Post – neat scenery and the Navajo Taco at […]

Monument Valley, AZ

March 7, Friday If the drive from Cottonwood, AZ to Navajo National Monument was scenic, the drive from Navajo National Monument to Valley of the Gods is grand indeed. East on 160 are great bluffs of carved sandstone. The town of Kayenta is surrounded by them. At Kayenta I get on 163 going north. Out […]

A picture in the visitor center of the Betatakin ruin, since mine turn out so poorly.

Navajo National Monument, AZ

Days fall into a routine along Camino Real road south of Cottonwood, AZ. Breakfast is usually had with hot air balloons for company. After breakfast, I take a walk. On April 3rd, another storm blows through. This one comes as a surprise, as early as noon the weather forecast wasn’t calling for anything significant. But […]

Sedona State of Mind

March 18, Saturday Uh-oh. A hissing sound becomes audible when I turn on my water pump, and the pump can’t seem to build pressure, it keeps cycling. This can’t be good. Actually, I end up being really lucky. First of all, I trace the sound to the city water connector underneath my ‘office’ bench seat. […]

Slide Rock and 89A

March 21, Tuesday Seven miles north of Sedona on 89A lies Slide Rock State Park. It doesn’t look like much on a map, a short road with a parking lot and a couple buildings. When you see it in person though, the beautiful red rock walls of Oak Creek Canyon clue you in as to […]

Escape to Sedona

March 14, Tuesday I’m very glad that my friends in Maricopa, AZ have a 20 amp plug in for me to use while I’m visiting. The morning is already heating up and it won’t be long before the A/C becomes necessary. Tammy and I take a morning walk before it gets unbearable. Heading east has […]

Ehrenberg and Onward

On March 4th, I pack up camp at Borrego Springs, CA and head east to Ehrenberg, AZ. The drive on Borrego Salton Seaway towards Salton City is punctuated by a large ATV gathering that slows traffic considerably. Ah yes, now I remember why I try to avoid traveling on weekends… Going north to Indio on […]

Good day for a Drive

February 28, Tuesday As has become my custom at this camp, I drive into Borrego Springs to use the free Wifi at Christmas Circle park since the cell signal where the Casita is parked is worthless and slow even in town where it does work. The drive back out of town is quite eventful. Parachuters […]
