About Kathleen Kemsley….

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  I started this website to showcase my writing — travel articles and books both published and unpublished.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

    My grandfather was Clyde Crain, Otto Crain’s brother. My mother Marguerite Crain Meyers told us the story about Otto Crain dying of blood poisoning etc. and that he lived in Leadville. I live in Colorado. Just wanted to reach out to you and ask if you have any other stories about the Crains.
