In 2014, I retired from a 33 year career in public lands and wildfire management. That same year, cancer made me a widow after 29 years of marriage to a fellow adventurer. I started this website to showcase my writing — travel articles and books both published and unpublished. I will continue to post these topics. But additionally, I’ve recently decided to go in a different direction: posting stories about the challenges of continuing to follow my passions of world travel, camping, and motorcycling as a widow, navigating alone in a beautiful and fascinating world. Please travel with me to new places and new experiences in the landscapes of Planet Earth.
