We’re back!

We’re back!

It is hard to believe that it has been over 2 years since my last post. I thought it was time to start it back up. Over the past 2+ years, we took one 6-week road trip out west and another, much shorter trip, to northern Michigan. Aside from that, we kept busy with home projects and family. We sold our Atlanta house, as well as our coach house at Mountain Falls Luxury Motorcoach Resort. We found ourselves constantly on…

Exploring Santa Fe and Angel Fire, NM

Exploring Santa Fe and Angel Fire, NM

After visiting with our friends in Sedona, AZ we started heading eastbound. Our first stop was in Santa Fe, New Mexico where we met up with more friends; Deb & Terri. We had a great time hiking and exploring old Pueblo settlements at the Bandelier National Monument with them. The Ancestral Pueblo people built and lived in dwellings, carved into the volcanic rock, between 1150 and 1550 AD, but there is evidence of human presence in this area over 11,000…

Our return visit to the Grand Canyon and Sedona, Arizona

Our return visit to the Grand Canyon and Sedona, Arizona

Charlie and I revisited a few of our favorite locations and explored some new spots during a “short” 6-week road trip in April-May 2021. We had four primary destinations on our agenda: the Grand Canyon, Sedona, AZ, Santa Fe, NM, and Angel Fire, NM. Because we made numerous stops along the way I’ve decided to make this into two separate posts. The first, this one, will cover our road trip from Hiawassee, GA to the Grand Canyon, as well as…

It’s been awhile…

It’s been awhile…

First of all, I hope that you are all doing well during this COVID-19 pandemic. It is a difficult time for so many. I can’t believe it has been 6 months since my last post. I think I got burnt out from our fantastic trip-of-a-lifetime road trip last year. I haven’t even touched my cameras for months. That’s saying a lot! We arrived back at Mountain Falls Class-A Motorcoach Resort in Lake Toxaway, North Carolina mid October. This concluded our…

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

This is the last destination stop on our 2019 road trip! It is hard to believe that we left Atlanta, GA nine months ago. It has been an absolutely amazing trip and ending it at the balloon fiesta is a great way to celebrate it. We arrived in Albuquerque on Thursday, October 3rd, a couple days before the balloons were to fly. Charlie is a balloon pilot and wanted time to catch up with his balloonist friends. We did not…

National Parks of southern Utah

National Parks of southern Utah

September 20– October 2, 2019 Capitol Reef Charlie and I were both a little under the weather, with colds, when we arrived in Torrey, UT. Neither of us had much energy, so hiking was out of the question. We were happy to discover some great driving options in and around the park. The first is the popular Scenic Drive road. This paved road is only about 8 miles long. It is the highlight of the park, and very busy, for…

Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park

After being gone for 72 days we were looking forward to our return to the United States’ lower 48. We anticipated great cell service, lower gas prices and fabulous grocery stores. Well, that wasn’t exactly the case. We came across the Canada – US border in a remote area of northern Montana, heading towards the KOA in St. Mary, Montana. We discovered that there is absolutely no cell service all the way down to, and including, St. Mary. Bummer! While…

Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

OMG!! Talk about Eye Candy. This place is just gorgeous! We had great weather for our drive down the Icefields Parkway, from Jasper to Lake Louise. On the way we had to stop for some female big horn sheep. It looks like they were trying to hitch hike a ride with the RV in front of us. We also spotted some mountain goat. I was surprised at how close to the road these guys were. They are usually high up…

Jasper, Alberta, Canada

Jasper, Alberta, Canada

In my last post I mentioned that we had just completed our Alaska trip with Fantasy Tours. We were back on our own, working our way to Jasper. We needed to find an overnight location between Smithers, British Columbia and Jasper, Alberta. We ended up at the Terracana Ranch Resort, just east of McBride. The resort is beautiful. It is situated on a hill overlooking a river and surrounded by mountains. The RV park was just recently added and we…

Canada’s Stewart-Cassiar Highway

Canada’s Stewart-Cassiar Highway

We departed Haines and headed towards Stewart, British Columbia with overnight stops in Whitehorse, Watson Lake and Dease Lake. The landscape just north of Haines is spectacular. You travel alongside two mountain ranges. The first is within the Tatshenshini-Alsek Park. The second mountain range is within the Kluane National Park. Since our route took us back through the village of Haines Junction we just had to stop at the Village Bakery one final time. We stocked up on some frozen…
