7 Super Shots – Travel Photos Revisited

At the prompting of fellow blogger Sandra Foyt of Albany Kid, I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots. I don’t often follow prompts for my blog posts, but I liked this particular challenge. It gave me the opportunity to dig through my old photos, and highlight a few that I love, yet haven’t […]

Independence Pass

Only 2100 miles ’til home!

After dropping off Steve in Aspen, we headed back to our campsite to look for my wallet. Though we didn’t find it, we did see two grey wolves run through the campground, confirming for me that I HAD seen a wolf run down the road the previous night. Wild! (Oh, and my wallet was later […]

Addie getting a bath in the hotel sink in Moab, UT.

And then we were a wolfpack of four…

We had a slow start yesterday morning – Addison had an early morning poo-plosion. I won’t got into the details – I think the name is descriptive enough. Anyway, it resulted in a hotel sink bath, and a later departure time than we anticipated. Despite this, we made it to Carbondale, CO by 2:30pm, and […]

Four Corners

Four Corners and the Grand Canyon!!!

First major stop of the day – Four Corners! For a small fee, we got to stand in four states at once – Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico! The scenery on the way to the Grand Canyon National Park was gorgeous – lots of beautiful mountains with multi-colored strata, random rock formations, and the […]

The Silver Bean, Cortez, CO.

The Silver Bean

As we drove out of Mesa Verde today, Kendra caught site of the coolest coffee shop we’ve ever seen! Located in Cortez, Colorado, the Silver Bean is housed in a vintage Airstream trailer. We HAD to stop! Inside was impressive – in addition to the barista area, there was seating for customers! We chatted with […]

Our new tent!

Oh Deer!

I tend to be a light sleeper while I am camping. It probably has something to do with my extreme fear of a bear visiting our campsite. Last night, I thought my fear had been realized. I woke to the sound of an animal – I was sure of it. Well, mostly sure. I waited […]

Sunrise over the Morefield Campground at Mesa Verde National Park.

Mesa Verde National Park

We woke to a beautiful sunrise and a full moon. The Morefield Campground cafe serves all you can eat pancake breakfasts and Starbucks coffee, an opportunity we couldn’t pass up! As Kendra noted, the pancakes were the BEST all you can eat ones she’d ever had. I have to agree. Our first stop of the […]

Zapata Falls, Colorado

Zapata Falls and a long drive…

We started our day with a short hike to Zapata Falls. The 3-mile rocky dirt road that led to the trail was almost bumpy enough to deter our trip, but we persevered, and I am so glad we did! Once at the trail head, we strapped on our water shoes and hiked a quick 10 minutes […]

Frisky ground squirrel at Mesa Verde National Park

Hiking at Great Sand Dunes National Park!

Addison woke us up early again, which was perfect as we wanted to hike the dunes and it’s best to do so in the morning during the summer so as not to burn your toes! When I unzipped the tent door, I was shocked to see a deer grazing in the next campsite. It couldn’t […]

Sunset over the dunes at Great Sand Dunes National Park.

What a way to celebrate your first birthday :(

We woke early this morning, had breakfast, and then took a long nap when Addie took her morning nap. At 10am, we climbed into the car and left Pueblo to go to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. It only took two hours to get there, and we were pleased to find 18 campsites left […]
