  • Peekaboo

    Escalante, Utah May 23-25, 2018 We drove a jaw-dropping section of Hwy 12 through a landscape with surprises around every curve, to our next site near the tiny town of Escalante.

    Moab, Utah May 15-22, 2018 After Clay went back to Chicago, we had another week in the Moab area.  Without the pressure to show off our favorite places to a guest, our pace slowed down drastically.  But we did continue to make the most of this amazing place, where no amount of time ever seems […]

  • #RoadLessons

    We recently celebrated 700 days on the road. By “celebrated”, I mean I wrote “Happy Day 700” on the white board the night before, but we left the house early the next morning and returned late, so no one else saw it until the day after.  “Oh, it’s day 700?” Coral asks.  “Um, yeah…it was […]

  • Raton

    Raton, New Mexico April 11-14, 2018 We drove north of Santa Fe to spend a couple of quiet days in the small town of Raton. It’s amazing how locations within the same state, only a couple of hours away from each other, can feel like worlds apart. Raton was home to a coal mine that […]
