Downtown Aquarium 🐠 – Denver, Colorado

My younger sister recently moved from the Bay Area, California to Colorado and we were excited to meet up with her at the Downtown Aquarium in Denver. This aquarium is much smaller than Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was a little pricey for the size, but the exhibits were interesting and we spent about an hour … Continue reading Downtown Aquarium 🐠 – Denver, Colorado

Colorado National Monument – Fruita, Colorado

We took advantage of cooler weather Thursday (8/01/19) afternoon to visit Colorado National Monument. I was excited to see a tunnel cut right through the mountain. It was awesome driving through the mountain. What a great tunnel! There were actually three tunnels but I only snagged photos of one of them. You get the idea. … Continue reading Colorado National Monument – Fruita, Colorado

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park – Colorado

We decided to do a day trip to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It was a bit of a drive but we were close enough that we just couldn't pass it up.

Arches National Park & Portal RV Resort – Moab, Utah

Continuing our trek along Highway 50 (The Loneliest Road in America), we stayed just 2 nights in Moab, UT. Two nights was certainly not long enough to do it much justice. As my friend F.M. warned me, mid-July is not the best time of the year to visit Moab, UT. It's hot! The high temperature … Continue reading Arches National Park & Portal RV Resort – Moab, Utah

Great Basin National Park 🌌 & Sacramento Pass Rec. Area – Nevada

After surviving a Night at the Gas Station a few nights ago in Fallon, NV we decided to start our next destination drive a day early, swing by Great Basin National Park, and dry camp for the night. Dry camping wasn't really that big of deal, and it was nice to knock off a bit … Continue reading Great Basin National Park 🌌 & Sacramento Pass Rec. Area – Nevada

Shamrock ☘️ RV Park & Downtown Library & The Discovery – Reno, Nevada

We arrived here on Sunday feeling tired from our vacation at Leoni Meadows Family Camp. Do you ever feel like you need a vacation to recuperate from your vacation?

Looks like … Continue reading Shamrock ☘️ RV Park & Downtown Library & The Discovery – Reno, Nevada
