Colorado. Salida/Great Sand Dunes National Park/Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park/Telluride/Denver. July 2019

Clayton, GA/Asheville, NC. June 2018

In early June, my troupe and I (3 humans and 2 dogs) crammed into an old Rav 4 and headed up ten or so hours to Northeast Georgia. Why you might ask? Well, my best friend’s old dog was ill and she wanted to do a last hurrah with the pup, so that meant aContinue reading “Clayton, GA/Asheville, NC. June 2018”

Alaska. Girdwood/Seward/Denali National Park/Talkeetna. June 2017

National Park Counter: 5 SUPER AWESOME TRIP. This was my first “major” trip: furthest I have ever been away from home base, longest ever flight, probably the most different spot I have been to, and the place with the most “things” I have ever done on a vacation. This is a lengthy post, and IContinue reading “Alaska. Girdwood/Seward/Denali National Park/Talkeetna. June 2017”
