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
For my 40th birthday in May, Rueben got me some awesome hiking boots, and a weekend in Colorado Springs! That's all I wanted - some good waterproof boots (the ones I wore for this weekend in Colorado Springs were...not good) and to see more of Colorado. First stop - gorgeous Pikes Peak! First, I have… Continue reading Pikes Peak and Our Drive to Colorado Springs
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!
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
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
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!
“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.” - Bill Watterson "I think that's the galaxy..." Rueben and I were standing outside our first stop in New Mexico, looking at an amazing night sky. Yup, it was the galaxy! Neither one of us had ever seen it… Continue reading New Mexico, Stars, and This Thing Called Boondocking
2019 was an interesting year! We lived in San Antonio, hung out with friends and family, but didn't really take advantage of all that the city has to offer. While it was nice being in a beautiful apartment and getting settled in our jobs in San Antonio, we really missed traveling. We did take a… Continue reading What I’ve Been Up to Lately – It’s Exciting!
