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.

This looks like a very magical place Gaelyn. It's nice that the new owners are so open and want to share this little rock kingdom of theirs.

And Tovrea Castle is quite the amazing site. The builder certainly did manifest his dreams into the physical world around him.

What an amazing place to have lived. I enjoyed the photo of the living room where you could see the windows. I could feel myself there along with others from long ago. Very nice!

Very interesting. Such are the dreams of men, to build something unique and lasting. But like many castles, they are abandoned or sold.

Looks like a fun place to explore. I like those quirky rock animals and the pretty stones in the miracle grotto. Your photos and narrative are fascinating!

Sometimes the "accidental" tours turn out to be the best because the tour guide is so passionate about his or her place.

thanks again for the great hospitality and the good company.

What a wonderful idea and place Gaelyn. It is wonderful that people leave behind these places for us which we can build on.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I like your blog too. Yarnell reminds me of outback Australia, same scenery. It must be great living on the road seeing new places all the time.

What a fun and interesting place to visit. I am glad that you all got a personal tour of this unique dream, and got to hear the dreams of the new owners. It sounds like this site draws in artistic dreamers. Lovely photos of your visit.
