“To know me is to know I love to travel, eat and take photos, although not always in that order. I love sharing my experiences”

Fall Foliage and the Colorado’s Fabulous Flat Tops Wilderness

Trappers Lake, Flat Tops Wilderness Area, Meeker, Colorado

“As Joni Mitchell observed in her classic Big Yellow Taxi, “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.” The vast wilderness encountered in the United States west even through the early 20th century has been eroded by development. Fortunately, the National Parks and National Forests along with many state and local agencies have preserved enough open spaces for visitors to enjoy.”

Rocky Mountain Road Trip | Jackson, Wyoming to Meeker, Colorado

Tetons, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

“We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog post to share our most recent adventure: a road trip from to Trappers Lake and the Flat Top Wilderness Area in Colorado. We left Jackson Hole first thing last Friday after three solid days of rain; the early morning departure rewarded us with stunning views of the Tetons and its mantle of fresh snow. Intermittent fog blanketed the valley as we headed south, but soon dissipated and we were bombarded with breathtaking scenery and endless photo opportunities, which wreaked havoc with our schedule.”
