Grants New Mexico

Another day of just driving and not sightseeing. We drove from Las Vegas to Grants and would love to have explored El Malpais and the surrounding area for a few days but with the Governor’s lockdown orders we can’t. Oh well.   Grant is known as the “Uranium Capital of the World” and is about 80 miles west of Albuquerque …

Our journey today took us from Ft Collins down to Loveland and up the Big Thompson Canyon on Highway 34 to Estes Park.  From Loveland to Estes Park it is just under 30 miles and most of it is through a curvy canyon road which follows the Big Thompson River. It takes about 40 minutes to drive this beautiful, scenic …

Colorado State University Ft Collins Colorado

We departed Curt Gowdy State Park for our short drive to Ft Collins, Colorado. I spent some time in Ft Collins at Colorado State University back a long, long, long time ago. I haven’t been back to visit the university since my college years so we thought we would take a trip down memory lane. I only wish my roommate …

KOA Billings Montana

We departed Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park and paralleled the Jefferson River until we returned to I-90. We continued on through Bozeman and Livingston and on to Billings. The closer we got to Billings the more insects were hitting our windshield and they were big and hitting HARD! They were huge grasshoppers. Our windshield was covered by the time …

Jim and Marys RV Park Wye Montana

Off we go driving from Coeur d’Alene to the Missoula area. This means heading over 4th of July Pass and Lookout Pass (on the Idaho/Montana border). We spent a number of years in the winter trying to get over Lookout Pass in a big rig with snow and ice. We would constantly study the weather and the webcams to see …

Nothing, AZ

We have been lying in wait during the pandemic with social distancing and being careful and not traveling in the RV. We have also been waiting to see what has been happening with campgrounds throughout the country before we were to begin any kind of motorhome travel. Of course, our original plans went down the drain but we are used …

Panguitch Utah

We departed Salt Lake City and as we headed south along I-15 we could clearly see the Bingham Canyon Mine which is the largest man-made excavation in the world.  You can’t miss it if the weather is clear it is so big. And then further south we took Hwy 20 east about 20 miles to Hwy 89 to get to …

Welcome to Utah, The Beehive State, named in 1847 to symbolize cooperative work and the term is still used to this day.   We drive through Salt Lake city frequently but just recently a friend of ours moved there so it was time to spend a few nights downtown and do some visiting! So KOA it was!   RV Park: …

Pocatello Idaho Museum of Clean

Ahhh…welcome to Idaho! It’s been almost 2 years since we were in Idaho even though we lived there for over 10 years. It’s great to be back. Harvest was in full swing, you could smell it in the air, see it in the fields, and feel it in your bones. It’s good to be back!   We decided to spend …
