Circling the Vortex in Sedona

December 3, 2019 – January 21, 2020 Oh Sedona, you’re a complex place.  One the one hand our stay in Sedona/Cottonwood, AZ was a relaxing and and refreshing retreat, in a beautiful location.  On the other hand, there’s a strange vibe in Sedona and the Verde Valley area that could put a person in a…

Into The Wash

November 12 – December 3, 2019 Every once in awhile we leapfrog to our next destination instead of doing the whole drive in one shot.  That’s what we did between Moab and Glen Canyon NRA (about 10 miles outside of Page, AZ on the Utah / Arizona border).  We stayed for a night at 7…

Trailing Along In Moab

October 24 – November 12, 2019 The next stop on our journey was Moab, UT.  The place we decided to settle into was on BLM land off road 143 about 20 miles north of Moab.  The site was within walking distance of many, many miles of mountain biking / hiking trails and we made good…

Life On The Wedge

October 17 – 24, 2019 Heading straight south from Antelope Island State Park we stopped to check out The Little Grand Canyon near Emery, UT.  We pulled into Wedge Overlook, dispersed camping on the top edge of the canyon.  A busy but courteous (and somewhat confusing) campground with stunning views.  The campground is a maze…

Temporary Home Where The Buffalo Roam

September 27 – October 17, 2019 When the falling temps in Ketchum, ID pushed us south we decided to spend a couple of days around Salt Lake City by way of Curlew National Grasslands outside of Holbrook, ID.  The grasslands campground didn’t really have anything to offer other than a pretty view and a quiet…

Idaho: Part 2

September 11 – 27, 2019 After a quick stopover in Carey, ID, Ketchum is where we mostly found ourselves on this stretch of our travels.  We’d been told that the Sawtooth Mountains should be in our plans, and we were happy for the tip.  We ended up boondocking along Lake Creek in a dispersed camping…

Idaho: Who knew? (part 1)

July 29 – September 10, 2019 We picked a place in Idaho that was close to Yellowstone National Park, but far enough away to avoid the crowds.  And we liked it.  So much so, that we stayed 6 weeks!  It was really nice to have some downtime and settle into one place for a stretch. …

Pining for the Tetons

July 16 – 28,  2019 Been awhile since our last post, so we’ll catch y’all up right quick.  After leaving the Flat Tops Wilderness in Yampa, we spent a couple nights on the cliffs above Green River, WY in a free campsite.  It’s dispersed camping with wild mustangs roaming the area.  Absolutely beautiful, with the…

Rocky Mountain High

July 9 – 16, 2019 After returning from out east, we spent the better part of a week in Sedalia, CO getting our rooftop deck put together and just winding down before heading up to the Flat Top Wilderness Area outside of Yampa, CO.  Elevation 10,200 ft.  Hiking and fishing opportunities abound in this area…

Replenishing our Reservoir

June 10 – 24, 2019 There were 2 weeks between The Badlands and flying out for our son’s wedding so we decided to spend them at Grayrocks Reservoir just outside of Wheatland, Wy.  Grayrocks is very busy on the weekends but it’s quiet during the week.  At $0.00 per night, it’s a bargain at twice…
