Soldier Pass – hike to the caves

May 11th, 2023 I’ll be doing some catchup posts over the next couple of days. Making a 10 day run to Europe to celebrate Katie’s wedding to Caleb Remnant got me off my writing track. I’m so lucky to have found a couple of hiking buddies while we were near Sedona. Jessica and I tookContinue reading “Soldier Pass – hike to the caves”

Devil’s Bridge Hiking – Sedona, AZ

Friday May 5th, 2023 Jessica and I took on Devil’s Bridge yesterday and it was a blast! We met Jessica and Dale at Distant Drums RV Resort. They are work camping here and run the Sunday service and bible study. When I mentioned that Tim won’t hike with me on more challenging routes, Jessica offeredContinue reading “Devil’s Bridge Hiking – Sedona, AZ”

Petrified Forest National Park – Arizona

Tuesday May 2, 2023 Tim has wanted to visit the Petrified Forest National Park since he was a little kid. We took a day trip from our RV resort in Camp Verde to fulfill this wish. The ride there was beautiful and very, very remote. We went the scenic way on highway 87 through WinslowContinue reading “Petrified Forest National Park – Arizona”

Verde Canyon Railroad – Clarkdale, AZ

Tuesday April, 25th, 2023 There are lots of “touristy” things to spend your money on in the Sedona area and many are not worth it. The Verde Canyon Railroad is 100% worth the time and money you will spend on the experience. Tim and I started the four hour journey by boarding the Flagstaff car.Continue reading “Verde Canyon Railroad – Clarkdale, AZ”

White Sands National Park – New Mexico

Sunday March, 26, 2023 During our four night stay at Hacienda RV Resort in Las Cruses, we made a day trip to the White Sands National Park. It was our last full day in the area, so though the weather looked a bit iffy, we packed Reba in the truck and made the hour driveContinue reading “White Sands National Park – New Mexico”

Saguaro National Park – Tucson, AZ

Friday March 31, 2023 It took me awhile to get the pronunciation down. You say the word like this: sa-WAH-ro. These beautiful cacti have become the icon of the desert southwest and they are everywhere in the Saguaro National Park in Tucson. We used our America the Beautiful pass for entrance into the park. IfContinue reading “Saguaro National Park – Tucson, AZ”

Shakespeare Ghost Town – Lordsburg, NM

March 26th, 2023 There is not much in Lordsburg, NM. It was simply the halfway point between one longer stop on our journey and the next. They had a decent KOA Journey and a couple of dollar-type stores, but that’s pretty much it. So Lordsburg is not on my “must return” list. However, if youContinue reading “Shakespeare Ghost Town – Lordsburg, NM”

Mesilla, NM Tequila, Ghosts and a Haircut!

Thursday March 23rd, 2023 While we were in Las Cruses, we visited the adorable nearby town, Mesilla, New Mexico. We spent some time in the area they call Old Mesilla. It has history back to the early 1800s and is filled with gorgeous old adobe buildings that feature shops and our favorite, local restaurants. Don’tContinue reading “Mesilla, NM Tequila, Ghosts and a Haircut!”
