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 am there in Spirit.

The Great Spirit would be awesome to ride upon along the currents and winds of change.

I would love to be able to experience such a celebration. It must really be something. If I had to visit your part of the world I would definitively come back home with a couple of native American articles.

Gaelyn, your comment made me do further reasearch on Texas Canyon. Come back and see the update at the bottom of my post!

That sounds like a great program. We once did a jeep tour on the south rim with a young native man, I don't recall what tribe, and he stoped at the rim and took out his flute, magic.
