We spent about a month in this area. It was fun as we lived at J Diamond RV behind Schat’s Bakery which was amazing. And fattening. We also lived on BLM near town and in Alabama Hills area too.
Outside of town I went on a few off-road drives and to play with the dogs off leash. This spot was near where we camped for a few days before heading into town for the RV park. We crossed a bunch of spring snowmelt streams to get here… Notice the electrical poles?
The views from here like so many places out west were stunning in pretty much any direction.
We are enjoying our lives… just didn’t feel like posting for a while. Honesty, I was tired of the politics, and the fired up people we met that felt the need to share their views. Some uncomfortable learning experiences for us along the way. Nonetheless, we love the places we traveled and enjoyed most of the people we meet!
We ended 2016 and spent the first five months of 2017 traveling around.
After leaving my parent’s house in VA we went to the Florida Keys… warm and beautiful in the early winter.
Then through the panhandle and on to New Orleans.
A short stop on the Gulf of Mexico, Texas before a long “office work stay” in the Dallas area.
From there we enjoyed Big Bend and western Texas which I’ll write more about in another post.
Through Quartzsite, Arizona and into southern Cali to spend time at BLM outside Joshua Tree. While in San Diego I visited a friend, and we stopped at a few Harvest Host locations and enjoy wines…
…to LA for another long “office-work stay” and then to San Francisco for a Google conference and onto many stunning places all over central and northern California.
Another free campsite at Rhyolite, NV. This is an old abandoned town that even had electricity. Funny story; Andrew thought we could find a spot easily so he didn’t unhook the Jeep to check out the road. So, we were stuck on a ridge, on a dirt one way road with our RV. We unhooked, completed about a ten point turn, and survived! Later we drove that road and many others with the Jeep… there was no way we would have been able to go much further in the RV.
Onto Reno which is an “office working stay” I really enjoy.
Then we were in Utah where Andrew stayed a week without me when I went back to the east coast to visit my parents and attend a conference in Garrison, NY.
When I returned, we immediately drove to Glacier National Park, MT before our month long journey through Canada to Alaska! More on that in another post.
