Back Home

8 Days out West
4 National Parks
30 Hours Driving

Whole Wheat and I biking in Moab. This 9 mile trip took us to the border of Arches NP and gave us a taste of biking on the sandstone surface that makes this region famous.
Whole Wheat and Dairy Queen with me at Delicate Arch near Sundown. It was awesome, until the little mice come out to see what all the hikers have left behind at the end of the day.

My house in Casper where I spent 5 years between 4th and 9th grades. Our neighbors across the street still lived there...after 27 years she smiled when she saw me at her front door. My little buddy Gary grew up to be an electrical engineer and has a little boy that looks just like the one I remember playing hours of catch with!

Dad and Teen at the Tetons. She had never seen this park or Yellowstone! They even got to see a Grizzly on the way out. That is still on my bucket list, as I departed using the West Enterance and they went East. Fun time together!

My Mom's little brother...My Uncle Fred dancing with his daughter at her wedding. She looks a lot like our grandmother. She wasn't even born yet when we left she is a nurse and married!

This week its now back to the job search and catching up on chores. Go Postal and I are also putting up insullation in the walls of the car barn this week.

Wow. One of these days I've got to get out there. It really is beautiful.

Speaking of beauty, Teen is one.

What a wonderful and beautiful trip! Looks like a lot of fun.

(and what do you mean, "car barn"? I thought it was a "quilt barn"!)
