Meow Wolf-Santa Fe

Once in Santa Fe, Caroline was eager to take me to Meow Wolf- an interactive art experience. She had visited this exhibit earlier with a friend who lived here for a while. I am honored that she wanted to share this experience with me. This particular exhibit is entitled ” House of Eternal Return.” This […]


Cortez to Santa Fe

Caroline and I left Salt Lake City on Sunday, December 16, at around 11:30 in the morning. Our goal was to see as many sites as possible and make it home by Thursday, December 20. We traveled through ten states in five days and had a wonderful cross country tour. There are many places to […]


2,000 Miles in Five Days

It is approximately 2,000 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah to Bold Springs, Georgia. I know because I recently made this trip. In five days! Our daughter, Caroline is moving to Ireland sometime in 2019. Before going to that fair green country, she needed to come home to store some of the things she will […]


Out on a Limb…

Traveling on Meandering Joy has allowed us to see much  beautiful scenery along the water ways and  delightful marine life.  It is magical to see the dolphin swim alongside our boat or an osprey nest filled with little chicks.  Meeting people from all over the world who share a love of the water is another […]

Let’s See Rock City

If you grew up in the South and are of a certain age, then it is likely that you have seen a barn or two (like the one in the photo below) with the words See Rock City painted on top.  Garnet Carter, owner of Rock City, realized that not many people would pass by […]


Cloudland Canyon

On a recent trip to Cloudland Canyon on the Western Edge of Lookout Mountain in Georgia we had the opportunity to explore sandstone cliffs, caves, waterfalls, and creeks.  The last time we visited this park was in 1989.  My brain told me that I could easily hike the two trails down to Cherokee and Hemlock […]

Graffiti-A work of art or vandalism?

A recent trip to Bell Mountain in Hiawassee, Georgia sparked the question about graffiti.  Mr. Adventure and I first hiked up Bell Mountain back in the 90’s for the wonderful view of Lake Chatuge and Hiawassee.  At that time the road wasn’t paved and required a four-wheel drive to get halfway up the mountain and […]

The vacation is over!

I didn’t plan on a vacation from blogging.  Sometimes the inspiration for writing eludes me and a short vacation ensues.  After a month-long break, I am ready to write again.  July was spent visiting friends and family and getting caught up on life here in Bold Springs. (And playing just a little tennis!) And of […]
