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

Harold looks into his rear view mirror and says, very casually, “We may have a problem back there.” “What kinda problem? What’s going on?” I question him. He’s so […]
