Call us naïve. Call us optimistic. Definitely call us unprepared. While in Granby, I read and heard about this amazing hike, the Monarch Lake Trail. Rueben and I had a picnic at the entrance of the area, but hadn't thought about doing the hike since it's a little over 4 miles long at an elevation (8400') way… Continue reading Monarch Lake Trail – an Unexpected but Unbelievable Hike
A case for visiting small towns! I grew up in Del Rio, a city of about 40,000 people, with one hospital and one high school. After I graduated from high school, I moved to Austin to attend The University of Texas at Austin, where the student population exceeded that of my hometown! It was a… Continue reading Granby, CO and Why You Should Visit Small Towns
Colorado scenery truly doesn't disappoint. After Rueben and I spent a fun two weeks in Cripple Creek, CO, we decided to stay closer to Rocky Mountain National Park and booked an RV resort in Granby, CO. The drive there was about three hours long and breathtaking! We drove by an llama farm! We took CO-9,… Continue reading The Most Gorgeous Colorado Drive
After going to Pikes Peak, Rueben and I got some amazing Thai food, went shopping, and went to our first pub in over a year! It was super nice treat for both of us, and a really great birthday. The next day we went to Garden of the Gods, which if you haven't been, is an… Continue reading Garden of the Gods and Bighorn Sheep in Colorado
When Rueben and I started RVing in June 2020, we talked about where we wanted to go, and Colorado was my first choice. When I turned thirty 10(!) years ago, I took a solo road trip to Colorado and as cheesy as it sounds, it changed my life in so many positive ways. I fell… Continue reading We Made it to Colorado!
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
