From Yellowstone we headed North through Big Sky Country to Glacier National Park – the state was aptly named the latter because of its wide-open terrain with seemingly never-ending views of blue skies and fluffy clouds – this slogan can be found imprinted on anything from bumper stickers to magnets to even lighters, and is […]

Yellowstone, Yellowstone…oh how I have mixed feelings about you… Before I get too into this blog post, I should explain a few things that helped shape my above statement. First, the weather – we pretty much hit a miss with this one. Cloudy all day with scattered thunderstorms and rain showers.  Doesn’t sound too pleasant […]

On Friday evening we arrived at Grand Teton National Park, the 300,000+ acre park showcasing the imperial Teton Mountain Range. Our late arrival into the park meant availability at campgrounds was minimal and filling quickly. Our first stop at Colter Bay proved unsuccessful, so we headed north to Flagg Ranch campground where we lucked out […]

On Sunday we decided to do a scenic hike of Crosier Mountain. Crosier is not part of Rocky Mountain National Park but does provide great panoramic views of the park.  The trailhead is located just up the hill of the Ranch and is about a 9-mile round trip hike.  I would rate the park as […]

Our travels took us next to the city of Austin, Texas.  After a long drive, we were looking forward to some quality time experiencing one of the many things the locals partake in on a nightly basis.  This brought us to beneath the Congress Ave. Bridge, sprawled out in a grass park amongst hundreds of […]

After seeing the Gulf Coast of Alabama and Mississippi, we arrived in New Orleans late Thursday night and stayed at Bayou Segnette State Park, only a few miles from downtown.  Neither of us have ever been to the area, but were excited to learn about the culture, history and unique anecdotes that make this city […]
