Have you ever wanted to sell everything you own and just "take off?" Travel the country's back roads, paddle down a meandering stream, experience breath-taking mountain views, walk among 100-year old trees, and just marvel at America's beauty? That is the dream that my partner, Betsy, and I decided to make a reality. This blog describes our adventure. The food we eat, people we meet, sights we see, and the enjoyment we find in traveling.

Texas Wildflowers

Today, we will finally make it to Colorado.  (Oops, I haven't bought my John Denver CD yet!) After nearly four weeks at Crestview RV (just south of Austin), the motorhome is fixed and we are heading west with a vengeance.  Too many weeks of high 80's and 90's is the driving force behind our quick exit from the Lone Star State.  We had a one night stop over in San Angelo and then moved on to Amarillo.  Since the weather was comfortable mid-70's for a high and 40's for a low, we stopped for three days.  More on Amarillo soon.

Of the many miles of pounding the highway pavement in Texas, one thing has left a lasting impression - the stunning, rainbow of wildflowers that line the roads, fill the fields, and dot the prairies.  We arrived just in time to see the end of the famed  bluebonnets, yet catch the splendor of the Indian blanket, Indian paintbrush, coreopsis, thistle, daisy, poppy's and much more.
