The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Not Quite Yet

I've been busy trying to get ready for a trip down to the desert for the spring bloom.  The Little House on the Highway needed a good cleaning after the long winter and I found a few issues that needed attending to and repaired. Sinbad is doing well and its been way too long since our last road trip but we cannot leave quite yet.  I am just waiting for some parts to arrive.  Meanwhile I show pictures from previous road trips to the desert as I haven't been out hiking all this past week.


  1. Something to look forward to, hope you can leave soon. (with Sinbad?)

  2. Rock formation and cactus formation looks the same. The ultimate nature disguise.Hope like Bieb that you can indeed soon travel again with Sinbad.

  3. Wonderful cactus with the rock formation behind it.

  4. Love the angle on this. May the beavertails be in bloom for you and Sinbad.

  5. glad you've got a trip ahead for you!

  6. I am not sure how I would feel traveling in the desert. I know that sounds crazy, but do you carry extra stuff with you just in case you break down? I guess now we have cell phones and not quite as much to worry about.
