Port Townsend, WA

Originally named “Port Townshend” for the Marquis of Townshend by Captain George Vancouver in 1792, it was also called the “City of Dreams” with the thought that it would be the largest harbour on the US west coast. Officially settled in 1851, many of the homes and buildings reflect the Victorian times of the city’s […]

Taos, NM – Enchanted Circle Drive

The Enchanted Circle Drive is an 83 mile circular route up through the Carson National Forest, north and east of Taos. The route takes you around Wheeler Peak, the highest point in the state at 13,161′ feet, up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. At the visitor centre, we had been told the better way to drive it […]

Taos, NM – Taos Pueblo and the Rio Grande

Taos Pueblo is a Unesco World Heritage site located 3 miles northeast of the old town. Established in the late 13th and early 14th centuries, the pueblos are considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. It was a beautiful sunny, warm, breezy day when we drove out there. The tall […]

Taos, NM – Old Town and Rancho de Taos, NM

My overall impression of Taos is that it’s a more hippie-ish version of Santa Fe. It’s a little rougher, a little wilder, and there are a lot of older RVs that move around from one parking lot to another. I’m not being negative – for me, these are all pluses. Add in creativity, amazing food, culture […]

Moab, UT – Canyonlands National Park

Harold went out to take some photos of the beautiful cliffs behind us this morning. As he was standing there, an older woman came up to him, and before he could even say “Good morning!” she spurted “That’s the sort of wall we need to keep them damn illegals out!” It’s hard not to compare the […]

Phoenix, AZ

It seems that Phoenix is turning into our way station in the southwest. We like to spend most of our time boondocking, but it’s nice to have a place where we can plugin, do laundry, shop and dine out. That is what Phoenix is to us, a place to recharge, and restock. We returned to […]

Why does it have to rain sooooooo much? Why, AZ

The rain hammered us all night long. I woke up a number of times, and imagined the pool growing around us, and up the side of our trailer. “By now it’s probably at the second step.” my imagination needled me. Then the next wake-up, “Probably at the top step now.” I assuaged my fears, thinking as […]

Oh why oh why oh why? Yuma to Why, AZ

We only had a 2 hour and 38 minute drive from Yuma to Why, AZ. We had to get tidied up and ready to go, drive up to the pay water booth and fill our tank and empty bottles, dump at the 76 Station, withdraw some cash from an ATM, and buy a Bota box […]

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

You enter Theodore Roosevelt National Park through Medora, ND, which is just 30 minutes east of Beach. It was rainy and cold as we drove in, but the rain was fine and insubstantial. With the mist and fog crawling over the big outcroppings of rocks and heathery landscapes, I was able to confuse myself into thinking I was along […]

Fernie, BC could have been our t-shirt town

This statue is the original Fernie who the town was named after not to be confused with the current day Fernie who is my stepfather. My stepfather Fernie doesn’t come from Fernie, BC. I expect it would have been very strange to have the same name as his hometown, so it’s probably better this isn’t […]
