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.

It is a long post but well worth it. Geology is right there in front of you in that country.

Great pics. I'm intrigued by a State Park named Kodachrome.

I'm a rock fan also, but not as knowledgeable as you. I'm always fascinated by the shapes and colors of the geologic formations. Thanks for taking us on this lovely ride!

Carolyn said...

What a great adventure Gaelyn. I love geology and how Mother Nature is such a fine artist. Thank you for sharing this wonderful trip. I'll be back to read more, have been a litte preoccupied lately.
Smiles and safe journeys

Sorry about your truck....but these photos are among your best. I see lots of shapes...and nostrils in one photo.

That's a neat road. I got lucky the day I committed myself to follow it. I had started in Holbrook AZ, traveled thru the Hopi reservation, stopped at Antelope Canyon, then did Cottonwood, and ended a 750 mile day in Tonopah NV. Cottonwood was in great shape and I zoomed thru at 40-45 mph. But I took 100 photos anyway. You have some great photos here!
