Miami

This is our third trip in our new Winnebago Minnie. We also went to St. Augustine and the panhandle. I didn’t write about either of these trips due to laziness. I was also very put out when we travelled to the panhandle because people were so lax in following CDC guidelines. However, it is now time to write again. We are staying at the Miami … Continue reading Miami

Super Bowl LV

I was fortunate enough to go to the Super Bowl last week. It was an amazing experience. If you are looking to go to the Super Bowl in the future, I have some advice. First, wait a few days after the two teams are decided to purchase tickets. You will figure out in those few days whether the prices will rise or fall and if … Continue reading Super Bowl LV

Road Trip Out West: Colorado

Driving across the country I am constantly amazed by the changing landscape and the beauty in all we see. Idaho surprised me with its rolling fields, volcanic rock, and distant mountains. Colorado is all about mountains, plateaus, mesas, and the valleys between them. When we arrived near Grand Junction, Jef found a park that we could explore: Colorado National Monument. It was at the end … Continue reading Road Trip Out West: Colorado

Road Trip Out West: Craters of the Moon, Preston, and Bonneville Salt Flats

The drive to Craters of the Moon is definitely like being on the moon. It is difficult to take a picture of the landscape because it is so vast. The lava rocks are piled up against rolling fields and mountains. They are black either growing bushes and grass or still stark piles. When you arrive at the visitors’ center, that is the true entrance to … Continue reading Road Trip Out West: Craters of the Moon, Preston, and Bonneville Salt Flats

Road Trip Out West: Idaho Waterfalls and Ice Cave

We arrived in Idaho Falls, had some diner food, a trip to Reed’s Dairy (homemade Huckleberry ice cream-yum!), and to the hotel, which had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in (it was a Sleep Inn). The next morning we stopped at two gardens, one in the heart of the city and another in the middle of campus at BYU Idaho. I would … Continue reading Road Trip Out West: Idaho Waterfalls and Ice Cave

Road Trip Out West: Yellowstone and Beartooth Highway

Yesterday we thought that the park would be super busy considering it was the day after the holiday, so we decided to take the road east across Yellowstone through Lamar Valley and out into Wyoming and onto Beartooth Highway. We encountered very little traffic and we started around 9:30am. We stopped briefly to view this gorgeous waterfall. On our way to view the petrified tree, … Continue reading Road Trip Out West: Yellowstone and Beartooth Highway

Road Trip Out West: Yellowstone National Park-Day 1

Driving through Yellowstone on the Fourth of July may have not been our smartest move, but we started out early and was able to see quite a bit of the park. We are staying in Gardiner, MT and therefore are right next to the North Entrance. After checking out a couple of elk hanging out by the inn, we stopped at Mammoth Springs. It was … Continue reading Road Trip Out West: Yellowstone National Park-Day 1
