Under the Arches

Posted in Family, Outdoor Adventures, and Photography

Project 365 – #071 My blog has been on auto-pilot all week long.  Today is the first day where I am actually posting live since last Friday.  Why?  Well, D had a work conference in San Diego this past week.  Munchkin and I decided that we would tag along with D.  We packed up the 5th-wheel trailer and headed over to the CA coast for a week of camping on the beach. The weather was beautiful even though it rained a little while we were there.  The evenings were on the cool side.  The breeze coming off the water made…

Exploring Bulldog Canyon Day 2

Posted in Family, Outdoor Adventures, and Photography

Day 2 of exploring Bulldog Canyon was filled with fun, dust, and lots of rocks and boulders.  It’s sad to see our time of off-roading with Grandma and Grandpa coming to an end.  We were thrilled to have this time together.  We saw so much gorgeous scenery while we were out riding.  A couple of crazy spills later, D is a bit sore, but he doesn’t regret a minute of it as we had a blast.

Exploring Bulldog Canyon Day 1

Posted in Family, Outdoor Adventures, and Photography

Since my Dad and Stepmom are here visiting, we thought it would be fun to head out exploring with our RZR and D’s dirt bike. Our RZR only seats 2 people, so we found a place that rented RZRs. Grandpa and Munchkin were in one RZR (the rental) while I drove Grandma in my RZR. D took the lead which, as usual, lead to some crazy times on the trails, but we had a blast. Here are some of the sights from today’s trip to Bulldog Canyon. Project 365 – #026 This area is stunning. We’ll be heading out for…

Hiking Old Stamp Mill Trail

Posted in Family, Outdoor Adventures, and Photography

On Sunday, we decided to head out and enjoy the Lord’s creation by having a picnic by the water and then hiking the Old Stamp Mill Trail at Picacho State Park.  Little did we know that our idea of having a picnic by the water would be foiled by a windstorm. Project 365 – #025 As you can see with this picture of D walking towards us, the wind was really kicking.  We decided to find a more sheltered spot away from the crazy wind to enjoy our lunch.  After lunch, we began our hike.  The cool breeze felt nice…

Exploration and a Hike

Posted in Family, Outdoor Adventures, and Photography

We decided that it would be fun to take Grandma and Grandpa over to an area that we briefly explored before – the water in the desert area.  This time, we wanted to hike up to a mine area that we saw from our parking space near the water.  We had hiked a short way up the road, but this was a chance to really explore and hike up to the top of the hill. Yesterday, I posted a couple of pictures from the top of the hill.  When we started the hike, the top didn’t look that it was…
