Well, I’m still in Texas. It’s a big state! This little town felt like the Christmas center of Texas as far as merry shoppers, wine tasting, lights, and even ice skating (in 70-degree weather) goes. I camped at a place called Lady Bird park, where there was a great trail with cactuses and turtles. I’ll… Continue reading Fredericksburg, Texas
I pulled into San Antonio last night – It snowed! I was freezing all night, brrrr. KOA campgrounds are crazy expensive, but it was nice to stay so near to downtown. And what a beautiful city it is! The Riverwalk and the Alamo were all they’re described to be. It was festive not only because… Continue reading San Antonio
I’m posting very quickly now because I’m trying to leave Paris, Texas for my next stop in Southern Texas. Since I last posted in Wyoming, I’ve been through Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma, ending up at a small farm outside Paris, TX at a friend’s place. I was able to get amazingly cheap tickets from Dallas… Continue reading Dog show! (and long time no post)
The pictures from Chugwater, with the soda fountain, are from two days ago when a windstorm kept me in a rest area for 24 hours (I wrote about this last post). From Chugwater, I drove quickly through Colorado, and then on to Goodland, Kansas, where the Van Gogh tribute painting is. From there, I drove… Continue reading Chugwater, WY -> Wichita, Kansas
I haven’t been able to post anything because I got caught in the scariest ever (for me) wind storm after I left Wheatland. I only drove a little more than 20 miles when the big, neon road signs warned of heavy wind gusts. After the trailer got a couple of side gusts, I decided it… Continue reading Wheatland, Wyoming and the trip to Goodland, Kansas
I found a free campground with free electricity in a sweet little town near the freeway. The highlight of my day today was meeting two local women at the nearby pool where I thought I could shower, but the pool is unfortunately closed for the winter. I got lots of tips from them about future… Continue reading Wheatland, Wyoming
There are many more photos from Yellowstone that I want to post, but have to get out of Thermopolis – running past checkout time!
I left Banff to snow and freezing temperatures. I was really afraid I was going to run out of propane and not have heat, so as much as I would’ve liked to stay and explore, it was clearly time to move on. I was so tired of being cold that I stopped in Fort McLeod to… Continue reading Banff / Fort McLeod / Northern Montana
So I had a couple of adventures yesterday and today. I had planned my campground on the highway between Jasper and Banff and it was getting late when I pulled in. Turns out it closed for the season 2 days ago! Luckily, another campground let me park in an overflow area. When I woke up… Continue reading Jasper / Banff / Lake Louise
I’m so proud of myself for driving over this 4000 ft. pass, up and down! My trailer made it and the truck didn’t overheat – no disasters whatsoever. I pulled over every time cars piled up behind me. At one of the pullovers, I saw this guy who had ridden his bike all over the… Continue reading Rogers Pass
I’m uploading these from my laptop, so not sure how they really look to other people. I can’t use my fancy big computer to adjust colors and such until I’m somewhere else. I’m sitting in a Tim Horton’s using their free wifi. There’s rain now. Hopefully, it will dampen the haze so I can see… Continue reading Smoky British Columbia and a Washington Waterfall
I’m off traveling around the western US and Canada and will finally try to post some images of my trip. To start off, here are some random photos from Western Oregon.
