Tomorrow, April 3rd, Abby and I are heading out of Quartzsite, Arizona, in search of cooler weather and beautiful country. First, a short visit with my sister, Nancy and her husband, Robert, on their own journey from Arkansas to California. We decided to meet in Flagstaff— definitely cooler than Quartzsite! After visiting a couple days, we’ll head on farther north and across the state line.

We’re leaving in the nick of time; this week’s weather will really begin cooking!

That’s all the convincing to
head north that I need!

If that weren’t enough, this little critter visited our camp yesterday. He said, “chilly weather we’re having (84° today!), but not to worry next week will really be nice!” And beside that I’ve been told if you see one of these lizards, you can be assured that the snakes are out as well!

Is he from Geico?

So Abby and I are heading north. First into Utah to check out their Mighty Five National Parks, then we’ll slide a bit east into Colorado (whose mountainous area is six times the size of Switzerland—amazing!).

By the way, do you like omens? This beauty appeared a few days ago.

It may appear so, but no gold was found
inside Glenna’s Ford Aerostar.
We could see both ends…gorgeous!

I’m not expecting to find a pot o’ gold on this trip, but I am looking forward to enjoying some of the most beautiful vistas our nation has to offer. Our adventure begins tomorrow.

Why not go along for the ride? We’d love to have you join us! Just select that blue Follow button to be notified of each entry. Also, I really welcome and appreciate your comments!
