Journey Continues – UT, WY, SD
Last summer I journeyed west. This continues the trip. At the corner of Colorado and Utah is Dinosaur National Monument. Having seen the bones in New York City (American Museum of Natural History) and Pittsburgh (Carnegie Museum) it was interesting to see where they came from. The landscape pricks the imagination of life long ago.…
New Mexico 2022
In the fall of 2019 I entered New Mexico. I planned to winter in a warmer climate and return in April 2020. The pandemic had other plans for me. I was determined to return and finally came back in April of 2022.

I live in a van and have no air conditioning so I headed north for the summer. The the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont and the coast of Maine were just the ticket.

I was out of my comfort zone driving down forest service roads looking for places to pull off, but that can also be called “adventure”!…
Lake Mead and Death Valley
I went into Death Valley when the virus had just been making news. When I returned to “civilization” the world had turned upside down. For someone who lives in a van full time, closing the campgrounds made the “stay at home” order difficult. Nevertheless, I managed to get some photos of some hikes around Lake…
