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.


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.

I was just commenting to Nigel how pretty the wild flowers are here. We are also late this year. Your photos are lovely. Diane

Loran said...

Gorgeous, of course! Flowers in our neck of the woods have become jungle-like. All the snow and rain created profusions of blooms!

Martha Z said...

It looks like your world is in bloom. Few flowers were blooming in Lassen though I saw many in bud. Much of the park was only recently snow free and many areas still have several feet.

Jenny Woolf said...

Beautiful. I've only ever seen Grand Canyon in the snow!

Fer them that don't understands what, bloom where yer planted means, all they gots to do is look at yer pictures, and then think of they themownself.

Barb said...

Yes, yes! I have all these, too. Your Mariposa Lily is beautiful - I saw many yesterday in a field drenched by an overnight rain.

You certainly don't need a garden with so much beauty in your yard.

Gaelyn, I saw a comment from you in my inbox just now and by moving the cursor inadvertently deleted it even before I could read it. I was devastated! Please, can you leave me another one??? Pretty pleeeze???

Gaelyn, I loved all of these flowers. The primrose and the Paintbrush are some of my favorites. Lovely photos.

Lots of colourful little flowers. At the moment, because its winter, our most striking flower in bloom is the aloe. And they are beautiful.

I think that it is so cool that you know the name of everything.

I like wildflowers and was happy to find Indian Paintbrush for the first time on our recent trip. Nice pictures.

Larry said...

I especially like the skyrockets and the Sego lily.

Elaine said...

Beautiful wildflowers--there are even a few that grow here!

Janie said...

All beautiful! I'm glad the flowers are finally blooming there.
