Wisconsin Dells: Turns Out RVs and Waterparks Do Mix

Wisconsin Dells: Turns Out RVs and Waterparks Do Mix

On the surface, they seem like odd bedfellows—RVs and water parks. Most people associate the former with laid-back, look-at-the-scenery, slow-down-for-a-while style of recreation, while the latter is the very essence of manmade, adrenaline-inducing, slide ’til you drop kind of fun. Hold up though, because there’s one spot in the U.S. where it’s not an oil-and-water scenario. We’re talking Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, aka, the world’s water park capital. The beauty of this resort community is that it’s equal parts natural grandeur and manufactured entertainment, carefully balanced so you don’t have to choose one over the other. If you’ve never visited, the defining scenery in Wisconsin Dells is the Wisconsin River, which literally bisects the community. And, oh, those sandstone bluffs that rise above the river are National GeographicTraveler-worthy. Lots of woods, state-designated rustic roads, and three state parks round out the picture. On the manmade front, the community... [Read more...]

Revisiting Williams Lake…

Revisiting Williams Lake…

Last summer when we visited the Taos, NM area as part of our annual road trip, we hiked the two mile trail in the Taos Ski Valley, NM up to Williams Lake, a small glacial lake nestled in the valley between mountain peaks. Unfortunately and in spite of careful planning to choose the best day for our hike, as we were visiting during summer monsoon season, we encountered rain for the entire four mile round trip hike. Meghan, Me and Kate I have been writing recently about our cross country move to New Mexico and, as a treat to ourselves after spending months packing boxes, a week loading the truck, two days driving cross country and several days unloading and unpacking boxes, we decided to revisit Williams Lake in the dryer weather. We were also eager to show the hike and the Taos Ski Valley terrain to our oldest daughter, Kate, who was accompanying us on our big move from California. She had never been with us on a trip to Taos, so there was much to share with her about our new home state. It... [Read more...]

Bear Attack Reported at Arizona Campground

An Arizona woman was injured this morning (May 1) when a bear ripped a hole in the tent where she, her husband, and their dog had been sleeping at Ponderosa Campground in Tonto National Forest, just off Highway 260 about 10 miles east of Payson. Grizzly bear attacks tent. (Source: Thomas J/travelooce.com) The attack occurred around 4:30 a.m. After tearing open the tent, the bear reportedly stuck its head in and clawed at the 74-year-old woman, leaving her with bruises and a laceration on her scalp. She was treated at Payson Regional Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries and released. The woman’s husband and dog were not hurt. A large adult bear had recently been seen hanging around the campsite dumpsters. A wildlife manager with Arizona Game and Fish Department visited Ponderosa Campground yesterday looking for the bear, but it was not found. A culvert-style trap was set. The wildlife manager talked to the campground host about precautions, and all campers were informed... [Read more...]
