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 […]

Bypassed the Burner’s campground – Eugene, OR to Yreka, CA

The Valley Center Mall in Eugene, OR is a great place to stop and boondock. They allow RVs to stay up to 48 hours in the very back lot, which is right beside the walking/bike paths alongside the river and delta. We took the dogs for a hike and saw all sorts of wildlife. Nutrias, otters, […]

Maricopa, AZ

On Monday, we drove up from Tucson to Maricopa, AZ, an outlying town in the Phoenix metropolitan area. We pulled into a very full parking lot at the Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and found a spot in the overflow lot. After getting the trailer and dogs taken care of, we wandered into the casino where we both […]

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument

We awoke today to a beautiful sunny clear sky. I got up and took the dogs for a walk into the desert. The only sounds I could hear were the different calls of the birds and the shuffling of our feet. There was a slight breeze and the warmth of the sun was just perfect. […]

Superbowl Sunday in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico

We’ve been to Mexico many times by air and cruise ship and day trips into border towns, but never driving through the countryside. You hear all sorts of stories about the danger down there from gangs and other criminals and it’s hard to distinguish between hype and healthy fears. A lot of RVers who decide […]

South Dakota Badlands National Park

Bismarck was mostly just an overnight spot at a Walmart, that turned into a wonderful find. We went looking for a pet food store and chanced into trying Pancheros Mexican Grill. I figured I might be able to find something to eat there that was meat-free. Imagine my excitement when I found they have a […]

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 […]

Beach, ND – It’s freaking cold at the beach here!

We took two days to drive across Montana. The west side was more to our liking, with trees and streams and mountains. Once we got to the centre and east side, it was one golden rolling hill after another, without many humans in sight. Even the gas station we stopped at no longer had humans […]

Golden, BC – Kicking Horse Country

I’ve never stopped in Golden before, but I should have. It’s a cute little town between the Rocky Mountains and Columbia Mountain ranges with access to six national parks: Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke and Yoho. Two rivers meet at the town, Kicking Horse River, famous for whitewater rafting, and the Columbia River, which meanders through […]
