On Mule Teams and Dutch Oven Biscuits

Posted by admin on July 25, 2014 in Musings, Remembrances, Travel |

Mule teams and Dutch oven biscuits, doubletrees and a renegade Apache called the Apache Kid. These are some of the images that fire family history, family myth. Betty and I spent some time in Arizona and New Mexico this year and as we wandered around between the deserts and the mountains, my mind journeyed to […]

Hola!

Posted by admin on February 5, 2014 in Birds, Travel |

Hola from sunny Arizona! We started out from Boise Monday morning in mist and snow, and roamed near Hagerman, Idaho, looking for cottonwood trees chock full of Bald Eagles.

Wayne County, Utah, at 6:00 AM, and the morning breezes crowded around the willow leaves and brought the mosquitoes. First light spread over the red land.

Posted by admin on August 2, 2012 in Travel |

Back then, there was no Interstate 15 severing the heart of Utah from north to south; just US Highway 89 which snaked from […]
