I grew up in Del Rio, a town of about 40,000 people on the border to Mexico. My family and I would go to Mexico to eat at restaurants (Los Tacos Grill!) and shop, and in high school I would go with friends to the bars. It's not the most exciting town, but we do… Continue reading Del Rio, TX Appreciation Post
In the middle of February of this year (while we were in Canyon Lake), a huge winter storm hit central Texas, where snow that actually sticks to the ground isn't a very common occurrence. It caused people to lose power and water for days, including my parents and close friends. "The winter storm plunged large… Continue reading Finding Beauty in the Snow Storm
We spent a month at the beach and while fun, we were ready to go back to the Texas Hill Country, and then head further north. We picked an amazing RV park - Rio Guadalupe Resort. It's right on the Guadalupe River, so you can fish, kayak, canoe, and tube right next to your campsite!… Continue reading Canyon Lake and a New RV!
I love photography, it's obvious. I love looking at photos, taking photos, and editing them. There are times, however, when I feel no inspiration to take photos. It's usually when I'm in a city, not surrounded by nature. I felt that way for a long time, especially once we came back from Mexico. When we… Continue reading Birds of Galveston – A Photo Story
In January of this year, we decided to be fancy and stay on the beach for the month! We headed to Bolivar Peninsula, which is a ferry ride away from Galveston. We stayed at Lazy Pelican RV Park which is just two blocks from the water, and has free laundry service - amazing! The beach… Continue reading Life’s a Beach! Kind Of…
After spending a week in San Angelo, we decided to be closer to friends and family, especially since the holidays were coming up. We were still being safe wearing masks, keeping our distance, but we at least wanted to be able to see everyone in person! Plus, we had just boondocked for almost two weeks… Continue reading Back in Texas and Enjoying Nature
We've been in Colorado for about 5 weeks now, and it's absolutely gorgeous here. I'd be remiss if I didn't catch up on the rest of our travels, though, so here goes back to October in New Mexico! After we left Albuquerque, we met up with friends who were also RVing. They had gone all… Continue reading Lots of Boondocking, and Back to Texas!
Once we left Water Canyon and Very Large Array, we decided to spend time in a bigger city where we could find a truck, or at least leave our RV in a safe location while we went elsewhere to buy one. So, Albuquerque was our next stop! The drive there was pretty beautiful. We stayed… Continue reading Albuquerque, Amarillo, and a New Truck!
After staying in Alamogordo, New Mexico, we decided to go north and planned to stay at Water Canyon, a beautiful spot in the Cibola National Forest. The drive there wasn't bad, either. On our way, we stopped to see Valley of Fires, an area made up of lava flow from 5,000 years ago. The… Continue reading Forest Parking and When We Realized We Needed a Truck
After our beautiful hike in Lincoln National Forest, Rueben and I were driving back to Alamogordo and I realized the sunset was turning out to be gorgeous. Luckily were able to park at the perfect overlook to witness this amazing view. I wish I could find this overlook on the map, because it was perfect! I… Continue reading Another Incredible Sunset
