Hello Yellow

July 27, Wednesday Today I drive into Yellowstone National Park to meet up with a friend from Amazon and Quartzsite. It’s a bit of a drive from Island Park, ID where I’m currently boondocking. I’ll be camping in Yellowstone from August 1st until the 6th for a family reunion, but as I’ll be busy with […]

July 20, Wednesday There’s a heaviness to the air as I pack up and prepare to depart Beaver Dick County Park, near Rexburg, ID. Insects hum from the protection of the scrubby woods, there’s not a lick of breeze to be found. It’s going to be a hot day. Luckily my destination is at a […]

Craters of the Moon

The last couple days at my camp in Sawtooth National Forest go quickly. Perhaps it’s the sleep deprivation from last week’sĀ sunrise photoshoot catching up. I spend my time reading and writing, and don’t go anywhere. When you’re living in as beautiful location as this, the desire to go explore isn’t as compelling. Having a new […]

Up All Night

July 13 & 14, Wednesday/Thursday It’s a lazy day along the Big Wood River, in Sawtooth National Forest. I sleep in intentionally, and hang around camp reading and writing for the blog. A plethora of birds keep me company, I have yet to see a single chipmunk or ground squirrel at this location. The grass […]

Fox Creek Trail

After the fun hike in Sun Valley, ID, the weather cools down. On Sunday the 10th it storms, bringing hail and rain. Not a lot, but an on-and-off spattering of drops and plinking of pea-sized pellets that keeps me cooped up inside the Casita, reading. Even with all the windows closed to ward off the […]

I’ve met up with Nina of Wheeling It to go on a hike, Paul is staying back at their motorhome with their dog Polly, who had surgery recently. Polly’s the reason they’re here right now, attending doggy rehab in Ketchum this month […]

Wednesday, June 29 A severe thunderstorm warning goes out for the town of Bellevue, ID, where I’m currently camping at Hayspur Hatchery. Nickle-sized hail pings off the roof of the Casita as I peer through the rain-splattered window of my diminutive home, parting the blinds farther to make sure my eyes aren’t deceiving me. Is […]

Monday, June 27 My Walmart neighbor (the retired rodeo clown) tells me that since I’m heading north out of Twin Falls, ID, I need to stop at the visitor center and see the Snake River and bridge. When I wake up this morning their Bounder is already gone. Safe travels and happy trails, folks. I’ve […]

The Long Way Around

Thursday, October 1 I’m about 90% sure I see a wolf when driving to my morning truck appointment in West Yellowstone. The air is cool, traffic is almost non-existant, and puddles grace the pavement from last night’s rain. Around a curve a light colored shape is trotting along the shoulder towards me on the other […]
