Whenever I start to drive back home, to another park, Willie Nelson’s song “On The Road Again” pops into my head. However, traveling is never an enjoyable thing for me, at least the way I travel to get home or to a park. This time though, my dad and I did a “pit-stop” to visit my sister at Missouri State University! Of course, not technically a “pit-stop”, it did add on more time, however, getting a half day to spend with my younger sister was great! It gave Dad a chance to see her, and gave us a chance to … Continue reading On the Road Again and finally home!

Cold, rainy mornings that turn into sunny afternoons always remind me of “Mushroom Camp”. Every spring my family would go camping ‘up north’ from home, hunting for Morel Mushrooms. Many times it was rainy and cold. It was and still is one of my favorite places, and I can still smell the trees. I was devastated when the state did a clear-cut to a section of it.

Together, my friend Mariana (Mariana on the Move) and I had two options, head west to sunny and 70* weather, or head east to snowy and 40* weather. We figured east would be more of an adventure!! We also couldn’t help to “nerd” it up and do a joint blog post together! View her post, Falling in Love with Silverton and the San Juans, that has my pictures. (Since I am decent at photography, and she is way better at writing! If you haven’t … Continue reading Made me think of Home
It’s been one of those days where I really wish I would have brought my camera with me. Twice today, a very large storm cell went through the park and produced extremely heavy rainfall. Which made giving tours to cliff dwellings highly entertaining. I’m sure another one may come through before the day is done! I had the 9:00AM Balcony House tour, and even before the tour started, it began to rumble throughout the canyon. Thankfully I only had two people on my tour, so we waited and watched the clouds and lightning to see how close the storm truly … Continue reading Something About A Puddle
