Greetings From Moab!

Yesterday we headed out for a week on the road.  After a six hour drive we rolled into Moab, Utah last night.  Here for just two short days while en route to the Grand Canyon, our only regret is that we don’t have more time to explore the area. The ride here was a nice one, but for some unseasonable rain in Colorado mountains.  It basically poured all day long, making driving a little tough in... [Read more]

Our Camping Season Begins at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

We just returned our first trip of the season.  I’m happy to report that a good time was had by all and everyone is home safe and sound. This yearly Memorial Day trek has become somewhat of a tradition.  And over the years, we’ve learned a thing or two to help us make our maiden voyage a more enjoyable one. First, we try not to stray too far from home.  After a whole winter off, we never know... [Read more]

You Want Me To Go Where? Camping With Teens

You Want Me To Go Where?  Camping With Teens

We have been blessed with four beautiful children – a teenager, two preteens and a toddler.  And while they all have their moments at times, I have to admit, camping with older kids is by far the most challenging. As a whole, they’re a pretty tough bunch to please.  Friends, sports and trips to the mall are all hard to compete with.  And all those hormones can make for some serious attitude... [Read more]

Grand Canyon, Here We Come!

Sorry I have not been posting over the last couple of months.   Our lives have been extremely busy, and it seems winter finds us keeping to ourselves more.

Every year, we try... [Read more]

Weekend Escapes in Colorado — Mueller State Park

There’s snow on the ground, a chill in the air and it seems like months before we’ll see warmer weather again.  And, believe it or not, it’s the perfect time to start mapping out your spring and summer camping plans. Our family tries to take at least one “big” trip a year.  But between work, kids’ activities and other events, our calendar fills up way too quickly.  As a result,... [Read more]

The Best of Both Worlds

My husband and I have always loved the great outdoors.  Camping by an open fire, breathing in crisp, fresh air and gazing at the night sky are among our favorite experiences. We started out in a tent, then moved to a pop-up camper.  As our family grew, and our bodies aged, we found ourselves craving more and more creature comforts. We’d look longingly at those big rigs that always happened to parked... [Read more]

Go, Dog, Go

Go, Dog, Go

We’re a family of animal lovers.  With two dogs, one cat, a guinea pig and a salamander, we’ve got our own mini zoo around here. So how do we balance our many pets with our love of camping?  It’s not always easy, but here’s what we do. The smaller animals most definitely stay at home.  We usually hire a neighborhood kid to come in and take care of them while we’re gone.  As for the dogs? ... [Read more]

Head for the Hills

Head for the Hills

Mount Rushmore National Memorial, courtesy of the National Park Service We’ve been to a lot of places, but one of our all-time favorites has to be the Black Hills of South Dakota.  We went  to visit the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and ended up doing so much more.  Indians, presidents, buffalo and badlands – the Black Hills have it all. Less than a day’s journey from our home, our... [Read more]

Find Your Own National Treasure

Find Your Own National Treasure

Grand Teton National Park, National Park Service photo I come from a long line of campers.  When I was a kid, we’d hit the road for a month every summer.  This almost always included at least one national park visit along the way. The memories made on these trips are still some of the fondest for me. That’s why — years later — I’m carrying on the tradition with my... [Read more]
