Resolution Check-in

How are your resolutions coming along for the new year? They say it takes 21 days to make a habit. We’re past that date in January! I’ll review how mine are going with you here... I have been blogging daily. It is not easy. I hope to be able to continue and keep you interested and engaged. The first time I see that I have no readers on a particular day I’ll be cutting back. It’s not easy!Living more honestly and freely has been my favorite resolution so far in this new year. It’s not easy, either. People disagree and challenge your decisions, thoughts and opinions daily. I do the same.   Pescatarianism is a great, healthy idea and I’ve been doing well except for an In and Out Burger excursion out west. I mean, it’s In and Out Burger!  I’m not going to lie...I love and miss roast beef the most and may have to tweak this resolution.  Not swearing is hard, too!  I can honestly say the only swearing I’ve done this year I have caught myself. I haven’t used swear words much. Less than a dozen …

On the Road...5

Another week of adventures to come but last “On the Road” blog. Going back to normal blogging tomorrow.It’s too hard to blog about adventures when they’re happening. I’ve already thought of some great funny stories and lessons on the road to write about in the future however so stay tuned! Back in Phoenix today for some trail hiking and adventures. Also, laundry, workout and a movie!
The national parks have been lovely so far. Let’s hope the government doesn’t end up shutting them down. What a crazy world we live in right now. 😢

On the Road...4

Yesterday hiking in Joshua Tree was very great with temperatures of 70 degrees. Hiked 3 different trails and were able to take a tour of the Keyes Ranch. Only 25 people four days a week can go on this tour during this off season. Very interesting and I want to know more about this family now. No cell service in this area. Woke up to snow falling!  I’m talking can’t see in front of you kind of snow!  So funny to go from a hiking skirt to being completely bundled in a 10 hour period!
Making our way back to Arizona now...

On the Road...3

Last night we arrived in Vegas. Such a crazy place. I’ve only been here once before and I’m as amazed this time as I was the first at how crazy this city that never sleeps is...for the record I slept great in the conversion van! Today was 5 Miles of hiking at Red Rock Canyon National Park in Nevada. Although beautiful in it’s own way, I wasn’t as impressed as I was with Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. 
We’re on our way towards Joshua Tree but first Hoover Dam!
Stay tuned...

On the Road...2

We tried the lottery for the Wave a second time, but didn’t get it...again!   Hiked Bryce Canyon and several trails at Zion National Park.  What beautiful land and great hiking trails! Made our way to Vegas to hike Red Rock Canyon. Then on to Joshua Tree. 
Stay tuned...
