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.

Moved

Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

And just maybe, when I have to leave on Friday, Mike will follow me back to the North Rim for the holiday weekend.

It does look a lot like EWA only lots flatter. So you will be working at the NOrth Rim again?
How neat. Lovely country. Have a fun weekend. MB

That is such a beautiful drive. Enjoy your time off, and hopefully by the time you get back to the Canyon it will have warmed up.

Hi! I saw your comment on a post (about the Icelandic volcano) on the Geotripper blog, and decided to swing by on a hunch. Turns out I was correct - you know my mum, Hester! It's good to see that you're enjoying your time at the Grand Canyon, and getting great pictures!

Ashley said...
