The excitement of discovery is what draws us to wander. Our travels have taken us to the far corners of our home state of Texas as well as the diversity of the fascinating states of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Florida and Massachusetts.
Join us here as we share some of the special moments we have encountered through our photos and essays.
Davis Mountains State Park
At a mile above sea level Davis Mountains State Park is the coolest place to be in the hot Texas summer. The Davis Mountains, the most extensive mountain range in Texas were formed by volcanic activity 65 million years ago. Located in Jeff Davis County, 1 mile north of the town of Fort Davis on Texas 17 then 3 miles west on Texas 118 the 2,700 acres of the Davis Mountains State Park offers great family fun.
Grand Canyon North Rim
Four plateaus actually make up the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Kaibab Plateau is the Easternmost plateau at the North Rim.
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
Your trip to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area will likely begin with a visit to the Carl Hayden Visitor Center located on the west side of the Glen Canyon Dam.
Fort Richardson and Fort Griffin
After the Civil War, as settlers began arriving in North Texas, clashes broke out with the Native Americans living on and hunting these lands.
The Military turned its attention to the Texas Frontier as settlers pleaded for help against the raiding Indians.
The military responded by building a line of federal defensive frontier forts in West Central Texas.
Ruidoso, New Mexico
Surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest, Ruidoso has become a playground for thousands of people. Here you can enjoy cool temperatures and fresh air.
