Frontier Fun

The next day, we said goodbye to Monument Valley and drove north on Hwy 163. Our destination for the evening was Cortez, CO. For us, though, it’s really not about getting from here to there.  It’s what you find along the way that makes the trip memorable. One of the towns we went through was […]

Highway to Bryce Canyon

I was posting about our fall motorcycle trip out west when the holidays took over.  We had a busy, frantic, yet fun holiday season and, as always, when it’s over I’m glad to get back in the regular routine of things.

Small Town USA–Part Two

Now with a population of less than 800, Hardy boasts many antique stores along with many talented artists that display metal work, pottery, […]
