  • Big Bend National Park | Texas

  •   Before this trip, Josh and I had never heard of Big Bend National Park. Actually, there were a lot of beautiful places we had never heard of, but this place is worth coming back to. Big Bend is located right along the border of Mexico and Texas. Its full of low mountain ranges and open [...]
  • Marfa Town + Lights | Texas

  •   When Josh suggested we go to Marfa, he was surprised to find out that I had already heard of this tiny town. I remembered it from the Prada ad I saw a few years ago. Prada built a tiny one room store in the middle of nowhere here. At first, I thought the Prada store in the ad was just a ph [...]
  • Tourists in Roswell | New Mexico

  • Like most of our trip, our drive through New Mexico was a planned spur of the moment and day-by-day. We knew we were driving through Albuquerque, so just out of curiousity, we looked up the distance to Roswell. It really wasn’t far, so we said “What the heck, why not?”. Roswell isn't the sort of place t [...]
  • Bisti Wilderness Part 2 | New Mexico

So many unusual shapes molded into the rocks, with so many interesting colors. In one area, the rock could go from white, to black, then red, green, and or [...]
  • Bisti Wilderness Part 1| New Mexico

  •   If you are anything like us, I’m sure you’ve never heard of the Bisti Badlands. Actually, before this trip, we probably couldn’t have named any hiking areas in New Mexico. New Mexico is full of wide open spaces and Native American Lands. Driving through, we made sure to top our tank off e [...]
  • Hiking in Sedona | Arizona

  • Sedona was on my “must visit” list for some time now. We planned this trip very loosely, and honestly, I hadn’t even planned to be able to visit this town originally. But various weather events had us driving way farther south than we anticipated, and that turned out be a real [...]
  • Driving to Sedona | Arizona

  • Josh and I had a really great time in California. But with El Nino in full force this winter, heavy rains forced us to end our visit early. The day before we left, it rained the whole day. Josh and I were working in our camper when I stepped outside to get something from the car and saw that the whole [...]
