Time Traveling: Taylor Park Central, Texas Lakes and Union Park from ... Cat Patches

Good morning again, my friends. This is the third and final post in a series to catch up from our week without internet access. Let's just get to it, shall we? 

When I left off in my previous post, I mentioned that we'd taken a day off from riding when the weather turned windy and wet. The next morning, was bright and sunny again. I took the opportunity to photograph the hill we could see from the RV, off in the distance. Those sections you see in the image below where there appear to be groomed ski slopes ...

Time Traveling: Taylor River Road, Tin Cup, Cumberland Pass from ... Cat Patches

This is the second time-traveling post to catch up on the days missed last week. Let's back up to last Sunday...a week ago from today, and then we'll move forward from there. We had some breakfast and then got out early for our first ATV ride of the trip. Mike rides around our property at home quite often. I hadn't done much riding since our trip to Moab some four years ago, and so we took an easy trail this first day. As I mentioned, we were riding through open range most of the time.

Adventures in Yellowstone from From My Carolina Home

I imagine you can guess where we’ve been from this photo.  We are back from a wonderful vacation trip to Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park.  This was my first time to see either park, even to be in that part of the country.  I took almost 500 pictures and I’ll show you just a few today.  Old Faithful was fun, and we only had to wait a few minutes that day to see it go off.  I took about a dozen pictures while it was going.  It went on for enough time for me to enjoy ...

Back in Civilization! from ... Cat Patches

Hey! How are you? I've missed you guys! We find ourselves a week down the road since our last chat, now located in Alamosa, Colorado, just outside Great Sand Dunes National Park. It's been quite a week of adventure, and I'm going to catch you up on what we've been doing via a series of time-traveling posts. There's so much to tell you, and I wish I could have been keeping up all along. We had no wi-fi in Taylor Park (our previous destination), and we had a very weak cell signal. Anything I could ...

Royal Gorge Bridge from ... Cat Patches

We had a marvelous day of sight-seeing, rest, and relaxation yesterday. It was good to take a break from driving. We're staying at a very nice KOA. You know I'm often complaining about KOA's. One positive about the KOA's is that they are nearly always available at any place, no matter how remote. These folks were very accommodating when we needed to reroute, and we ended up spending an extra night here. It was a good thing we spent the extra night because the bridge took up half a day's time. Had we spent just ...

A Dinosaur Day from ... Cat Patches

The kitties have done so well on this trip. There have been no escape attempts, and they have been very relaxed despite everything that has happened. When we left Vernal yesterday, they were snug in their cubby. Smitty was in the middle, and they're now sharing this space with no squabbling.


We needed to take care of some business in town since the next week will see us in some remote areas. When we got back in the truck to head on down the road, I found a lucky penny. Right then and there, I knew our troubles were ...

Vernal, Utah from ... Cat Patches

It seems the expression, "If we didn't have bad luck, we'd have no luck at all," is a fitting way to begin today's post. Before I get to that part though, let me just show you how beautiful our drives have been. The roads are lined with blooming Desert Sunflowers. The image below was the road leading up to the dump station at Massacre Rocks State Park.


The flowers are so bright and sunny!


They've been painting the hillsides yellow. They are every bit as impressive as the California poppies we saw last spring.

Massacre Rocks State Park, Idaho from ... Cat Patches

It was a long and somewhat trying day yesterday. Let's hope it's the most trying day of the trip. We're wiping the slate clean and driving on this morning, having had a good night's sleep, several cups of coffee, and improved attitudes.

As you already know, we had to have a flat tire fixed first thing yesterday morning. What you don't know is that the night before, we'd noticed this.


Yes, that's water leaking from a screw at the front step. What the...? As it turns out there's a plumbing access panel ...

A Flat Day from ... Cat Patches

We got out early from La Grande yesterday morning, headed toward Heyburn, Idaho, and a park we've stayed at before. It's a nice park for just passing through on a journey to anywhere else. We stopped to fill up our fuel tank on the way out of La Grande. Mike noticed the tire pressure on one of the rear truck tires had gone down overnight, which seemed unusual. He noticed it back home too, and so he said to me, "I think one of our back tires has a slow leak." Famous last words, right? But on we ...

A Day Between Sunsets from ... Cat Patches

We were treated to a pretty sunset on our last evening at home.


Yesterday morning, I stitched enough on the Sweet Land of Liberty piece that I decided to move my hoop to encompass the last of it.


When I packed it for final take-off yesterday morning, it looked like this:


As I'm writing this, I've had some more time to stitch on it, and it's nearly finished. I'll have a finished picture for you very soon, I believe.

Just before taking off, I snapped a picture of our maple tree in the far corner of ...
