Hello World!

Simple campsite at Crawford State Park, Colorado

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  I started this website to showcase my writing — travel articles and books both published and unpublished.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.

    Ahhh- travels with Kathleen! Been missing you lately- good to see you!I seem to think about Alaska more during the holidays…Just this morning, I was thinking about playing “Fictionary” with you and Brian. ;-)Riley came home for a month- to avoid the high travel times closer to the holidays, and since she works online from home, she can do that here, too.  so we haven’t been goofing off yet, but it’s so good to have her here for a while- it’s been a long time!I also thought about our retreats in Hope, and you hiking up that mountain with the titanium pins in your arm!Isn’t that crazy?!?Hope you have a good Christmas and a more hopeful 2021…Lisa
