Lake City, MN ~ In the summer this park would be busy with campers, fishermen, and people enjoying a swim. The lake was completely frozen on this visit. You still have some fishermen in the winter, but ice fishing is rare in these parts. Still a beautiful sight to behold, much more impressive in person.

Sedona, AZ ~ Beautiful hiking trail, roughly 4 miles. I visited in summer, and really underestimated the heat – the dry heat sneaks up on you! It was still an amazing hike. I highly recommend it for beginners like me.

Mackinac Island, MI ~ I truly regret not getting more photos of the homes and buildings on this island. We were having too much fun I guess. This is one of the most beautiful getaways I’ve ever been on. Most travel is done by bike, buggy, or foot, which means a lot of exercise and outdoor time. The historic element is amazing. It is as if the town is preserved in time, a pristine reflection of the Victorian era. One […]

Cascade, ID ~ Cascade isn’t too far from Boise. This was a wonderful getaway. We stayed at the Bears Knight Inn, a really cute place with a huge gift shop. The town was neat, but the drive up was the most interesting part. Winding up the mountains on a two lane road with ice and snow was teeth clenching. We had to stop a couple of times to regain our bearings. At the time I feared for our lives, thinking we […]
Carlsbad, NM ~ Carlsbad is a neat place, but somewhat out of the way. If planning to visit, it would be best to anticipate spending the entire day, or more, here. The cavern tours can take hours depending on how far you’d like to walk. You certainly wouldn’t want to rush that, not that you could – them caves are slippery! I also enjoyed walking around outside. There are many interesting exhibits about the history of the land, the local plant/animal […]
Boise, ID ~ The Boise Train Depot has a long history (established in 1881). In 1924 it was remodeled to reflect a Spanish style architecture. It was operational, off and on, until 1997. It is presently listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places, and is a popular tourist attraction.
Boise, ID ~ This is a popular place to exercise. Located behind the penitentiary are large bluffs and walking trails. Many people park their cars at the base of the hills and walk/jog the trails. You could spend all day here depending on how far you’d like to go. Many of these pictures were taken at the top of these bluffs. As a side note, the penitentiary is said to be haunted. For those of you who are fans, the Ghost […]
