Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

I love that mushroom photo. And was that cabin really made from a kit? sounds like a great way to spend the winter.

Carver said...

I love to photograph wild mushrooms and to eat ones someone else has provided (be it a store or someone who knows what they are doing). I wish I knew how to pick the edible ones. All of these shots are great but my favorite is the mushroom and the last shot of the mountain in that beautiful lights. Great post.

Wonderful post. That's a big mushroom.

I've had some strange animals eat the bird food in the garden but never a deer. That mushroom too the biggest funghi I've seen for a while. Always so diverse here.

That's an awesome looking mushroom - it looks huge! What fun you always seem to have! Sometimes I wish we could trade lives for a day! Love your last photo of the beautiful Arizona sunrise too... (sigh)

The mushroom photo is fascinating with those vertical plants in the background. Your jewelery sales look so organized and fun. And, I like the picture of the mule deer trying to sample the bird seeds.

Gaelyn: Thanks for the great show of flora and fauna of the southwest. I loved your quail photo.

George said...

It looks as if you had a wonderful winter. I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

Lantaw said...

it looked like you had a great outdoor experience there. Thanks for sharing

Swarna said...

I liked the mule deer and sunrise pics best, and the quail parade, and the mushroom-in-detail. And I am always fascinated by GG RVer. 'sold a little, bought more' - I am bemused!

thanks for this wonderful tour of a combined desert and park.

My contribution this week is the beautiful island-paradise of Camiguin posted here

Louise said...

I love this installment. Especially the deer eating from the feeder, the quail and the Arizona sunset.

Karen said...

As always, you have me on the edge of my seat wondering where you are going next!

Those oyster mushrooms do look good. And that cabin is very cute. When we lived in winthrop we had a few white tailed deer that would eat out of the feeder too on their tippy toes.

Gaelyn, I think I know of the guy you mentioned with my name. He is this cool biologist that is a specialist in recording animals and nature. He does great work. He can record an ecosystem and from the harmonics he can tell if certain animals have disappeared or gone extince because certain frequencies are not being utilized. However, we are not related. That would be cool if we were though.

I love that mushroom Gaelyn and the last picture of the sunset. It looks like there is a great variety of things to sell there in the house.

Terrific photos! I won't even ask what 'mexican train dominoes' is!

J said...

I loved the photos of the cheeky deer and the mushroom - it has amazing texture. I'm looking forward to seeing where you go next week!

As always, it sounds like quite the adventure! I love the quail, when we were in Winthrop, we had California Quail that lived in our area, and I could watch them for hours dart from here to there, and eat under the feeders.
How do you store all your collections? You must be very good at organizing and packing, to get everything to fit in your trailer. Looks like fun doing your different sales.
I know, its hard once you get addicted to the internet.... Oh well. =)

Arija said...

Love the gypsy life! Wonderful lifestyle and wildlife and meeting s many people along the way. Your garage sale is beautifully set up.
What next?

nadia said...

Nice to learn about your part of the world. You have such a huge collection, were you able to sell most of them?

Thank you so much for sharing this interesting post :)

Ruth said...

I would have recognized that mushroom, but would be very uncertain about cooking wild mushrooms. Your gypsy life is very interesting... I could do it too if if I had internet ;-)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Your gypsy life sounds lovely. You see so much of the world as you travel. ;-)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Thanks for the photos and the commentary. I loved the pictures of the quail and the deer. Do you carry all your collection around in your RV? Seems like you had a lot for sale.

Maria said...

Great post! So interesting!

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Great post as usual Gaelyn, love the mushroom and quail.

W. Latane Barton said...

very interesting pictures. I liked the quail and the mule deer the best. Great sunset.

Catherine said...

that nomadic lifestyle will sure take some beating...

dAwN said...

Oh another mushroom picker...I love picking shrooms in Eastern Oregon...sept and october..

Tranquility said...

That giant oyster mushroom is amazing - I've never seen anything like it!

It sounds like you live a bit of a gypsy life - I think that's wonderful. My husband and I started our marriage in a fifth wheel, traveling from state to state while he built up flight hours. Although we've been in houses for the past 9 years, we keep moving and with each move, we dream of the day we will call it quits with the houses and start traveling in the fifth-wheel again!
