Part of the Grand View, it really calls for a Panoramic picture
I again am in awe of the vastness and raw beauty of this country.
It was about 45 degrees all day and we could see for miles and miles, oh yeah!

7 days since our last post and it is amazing what you can see when you aren’t working!

Hi All,

We are off to a great start on our Adventure. We stayed until the 7th of October in Broomfield, Colorado. We visited and enjoyed friends and family and then off to Gleenwood Springs. Beautiful drive west, yet the weather had other plans for us staying another day to enjoy the city and a soak in the hot springs. We moved on to Green River Utah where we will spend yet another night, maybe more. We went to a museum the day before last that featured the trip down the Green River into the canyons, where it meets the Colorado River. Expedition spearheaded by Major John Wesley Powell. The man which lake Powell is named. One of his team kept a secret journal, his name is George Young Bradley. A good read if you feel like googling him. Yesterday, we visited Arches National Park and today we visited Canyonlands National Park. Must Sees if you are ever in the area. Before I post any pictures, remember, I am an amateur photographer. I feel that many we’ve taken just don’t do the locations justice. You really need to stand there and soak in the views. The depth and range of beauty in this area is beyond words at times. I found myself humming America the Beautiful and feeling like a spoiled brat for the opportunity. I am extremely grateful for the people that set aside the land thinking others need to see this too. As much as we fuss about our government, the national park service is something they absolutely have gotten right. All photos in this post are from Arches National Park.

Some of you saw the launch

For some reason, probably a format thing, I couldn’t post the video our friends took of us leaving. In less than a week, we’ve driven through, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and are now in Colorado to visit Jeff’s sister and family.

In West Virginia, we stayed in a little campground in Gauley Bridge. Twenty bucks, not a bad deal. We then headed to Loveland, Ohio to see Uncle Ray and Aunt Kathy for a night. They treated us to dinner, I had my first Impossible burger at a nice little restaurant and then the boys beat the girls at Euchre. The next day we landed outside of St. Louis, we didn’t stop to see The Arch, but oh well, who needs to go sideways in an elevator anyway?

Our next night was spent in Junction City, Kansas. Nice little campground. Only thing that was a bit unnerving was the tornado watch that turned into a warning. The campground told us the nearest approved shelter was at a car wash equipment room down the street. I got a “go bag” ready and thankfully the weather never turned nasty enough for us to leave. A neighbor camper said if the sirens went off he would take us, because of course, our battery was dead in the tow car. Rookies, we have since learned how to avoid that happening, charging it over night or running the car during a lunch stop or both.

Last night we stayed just in the Colorado border a small distance in Stratton. Small town but big enough for a night.

That’s one giant cross!
I couldn’t get my camera ready in time for Arrowhead Stadium, so the Royals will have to do.

More photos to follow, it takes a while to upload them with my internet connection at the moment. Maybe after dinner.

Great Co-Workers

I am very lucky to have worked with a great and kind group of folks. They surprised me with a cake and a fuel gift card!

We did this thing…

This spring my husband and I decided we wanted to get in our RV and travel , so after great debate, we upgraded our 32′ Motor home to this Bus! The Tour should last about 8 months and I hope you will log in and see where we go!
