In my last post (see 9/15/13) I was describing the first part of a delightful hike we took in Manzanita Canyon in the Southern Rocky Mountains one hot summer Saturday. After we have been hiking for just over two hours, we reach a ridge line that feels as if it should be our connecting point […]

Last year on July 4th, Terry and I were living half a country apart. I had made the move to New Mexico in May; he had moved me out, then returned to Wisconsin to finish up a few weeks of work and time up loose ends before jointing me in Taos on July 7th.  Neither […]

We actually did it—ran up a mountain and back down. Well, to be quite honest, we hiked up, not ran, but we did run most of the way down. A few weeks back I wrote a post about Taos Ski Valley’s annual Up and Over 10K Run, in which participants run up a mountain for […]

Every year since 2008, the Taos Ski Valley has scheduled an event that nearly defies logic. Held last year in association with their Oktoberfest Celebration on September 15th, the Taos Ski Valley Up and Over 10K Trail Run is just as it sounds. Participants run up and over one of the ski hills for 10 […]

WARNING!! An Extremely Contagious Camper’s Disease is on the Increase.

After many years of RV camping experience, one thing that I have learned is that many fellow campers and I share a common psychological disorder.  In fact, it is so severe many Psychologists  consider it a disease.
