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  I started this website to showcase my writing — travel articles and books both published and unpublished.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