The road trip portion of my sabbatical has come to an end. Here are some random thoughts about being on the road since late November 2017.
Heading back to the American West across the High Plains of Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico.
Further exploration of some areas both new to me and some old favorites.
Some hiking and backpacking in the Moab area. My friend Joan will soon be leaving the Moab area, so one last trip (for now!) had to be done.
Just a few days of enjoying basecamp in Bears Ears. I hiked, I read, I scrambled up the cliffs and just took in the views for hours at a time. Why? Because I can. 🙂
Almost a week spent camping, hiking, exploring, and enjoying both the well-known and the obscure in Hovenweep and Canyons of The Ancients National Momuments.
Part Three of the Spring Break spent with the extended Boulder clan.
Three days in The Valley of The Gods. An ideal location for exploring the area.
Some exploring of the ancient places as I make my way to meet up with friends for their children’s Spring Break.
Some hiking and camping at a previously obscure High Plains canyon that is a little more on the radar.
