Security!

Since our last post, John and I visited the “World Heritage Site Pinacate Biosphere Reserve, Mexico”, returned to Organ Pipe National Monument, where we camped in the “no generator” area, attended every Park talk and tour available, and are now back in the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs area) waiting for the PNB PARIBAS OPEN Tennis tournament…

Seriously, What’s Wrong with these People?

John: Am loving these “no stress” pull through sites. Shelley: No kidding. John: And the breathing room between us and our neighbours. Shelley: You bet. John: Sigh. It’s not that I don’t like fully…

Snowboarding? At Your age? Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah Shelley: (Flip. Flop….. Flip…… Flop. Flip……… Flop. Flip. Flop. Flip. Flop…Flip. Flop…Flip. Flip. Flip. Flip………… Flop. ) John: Jesus Christ Shelley! It’s two o’clock in the morning. Go to sleep. Shelley: Trust me, the last thing I want to do is lie in bed flip flopping all night long. Oh my God, I’m so tired. Why can’t…

What’s the Difference Between a Buffalo and a Bison?

Shelley: Yellowstone is something else, isn’t it? How about Old Faithful? The other geysers and hot springs aren’t too shabby either. I love the Painted Pot Mud Geyser. Imagine having a mud bath in that sucker? I can’believe that not one of those geysers has been converted into a swimming pool or a hot tub like Banff Hot Springs.…
