Tim and I will be lacing up our hiking boots, grabbing all our gear and bracing ourselves for a six week expedition to the Southwest in the Airstream. I'm guessing we will be logging close to 6,000 miles round trip, exploring the unknown and discovering some of America's most amazing scenery. Our focus will be the Four Corners . . . Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. We may even throw in a treasure hunt along the way! I've included a few pictures in this blog post that will hopefully represent what lies ahead for us on this trip. The travels of our past have pretty much kept us in the eastern United States. So this trip is a major step out of the box. I have a t-shirt that says FORGET THE BOX ... JUST THINK OUTSIDE. One major stop along our journey will be the Albuquerque Balloon Fest. This balloon fest has over 600 balloons, is one of the largest hot air balloon events in the world and the most photographed event on earth.
Just prior to our big trip in September I will be leaving Tim behind and flying out for a short trip to Montana. My sister, JoAnn, is turning ... uhhh ... will have a milestone birthday celebration this year. She moved out to Montana over three years ago and this will be my first trip to Montana & to visit her there. She does not live far from Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park. I think she is going to take me there for her birthday! The remainder of this year has so much to look forward to and I can't wait!!!
