Anza Borrego wants me dead

The desert wants me dead. The wind blows in , and my synapses go crazy. Last year had me fainting and falling into walls til I was sure I was having a stroke. Doctor took one look in my ears and told me I had water in there. “Spring super bloom causes this!” he said. […]

Cochiti, NM – Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument

The day before, wandering around Old Santa Fe, we had come across an artist selling her photographs. We particularly admired her images of what she told us were Tent Rocks from a park down by Cochiti. She told us this was the only place outside Turkey to see these kinds of rocks. When we got back […]

Onwards into New Mexico

When I think of New Mexico, it’s all about Breaking Bad. I’m sure New Mexicans roll their eyes at people like me, just like the Lodi people do about Sons of Anarchy fans. I’ve been here before and I definitely know it’s more than one tv show – no matter how amazing that show was […]

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 […]

Moab, UT – Arches National Park

As soon as our wheels were back on the trailer, we screeched out of the lot in Wendover, and were racing across the salt flats for the very, very last time of our lives. It was raining and dark by the time we were half way to Salt Lake City, the highway was poorly lit, […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Glacier National Park, Montana

There is a Glacier National Park in Canada, and there is another one in the US. The US one is attached to a different Canadian National Park, Waterton Lakes National Park. Wouldn’t it have made more sense for the two Glacier National Parks, only separated by a silly little border to be the ones attached […]
