Photo of operator using the remote grippy things
Mark gets to try the remote grippy things - not as easy as it looks
An unscheduled visitor to EBR-1
Another visitor - a fox trying to race with us beside the RV - it was surprisingly fast
Grant Teton National Park
Lovely to spend a couple of days hiking and having fun with old cruising friends
River boating with same friends on the Snake River
Antelope Island near Salt Lake City, Utah
The island sits in the Great Salt Lake and is accessible via a 14 mile causeway. Home to one of the largest herds of free range bison in the US. Also lots of pronghorn and bighorn sheep, mule deer and many varieties of birds.
Great trails on Antelope Island but unfortunately in the July heat we only took advantage of a couple of short ones in the early morning
Bristle cones at Price Canyon Recreation Area, Utah
1,000 + year old bristle cone pine tree
Arches National Park
Careful! Don't push too hard!
A double rainbow
This trail led up a precipitous path to a spectacular arch. Luckily is wasn't too busy so we got to hug the high side and walk really slowly!
Visiting friends in Cortez, Colorado and doing RV repairs. Can't have fun ALL the time
Cathleen & Derek - look familiar?
We came across this herd of sheep on a back road to Tulluride, Colorado
...about the ride up to the ski slopes in a gondola. Julie said she's much prefer the Venice variety.
Last day in Cortez with our ex-boater RV friends whom we met in Baja
Mesa Verde National Park
We never realized there were so many cliff dwellings here
They are littered all over the place and very spectacular
Great Sand Dune National Park. We had no idea this was here. There are two rivers that carry sand down from the mountains. In the spring, they erode the dunes, carrying sand downstream.
The rivers dry out in summer, and the prevailing wind carries the sand back to the dunes. An amazing cycle of erosion and renewal.
Tallgrass Prairie Preserve. Cow and nursing calf
That's some tall grass!
Oh, now we get it

Nearly home now
