Lately

21st September 2015

Wow, so a lot has happened since I last posted. The last time I posted I talked about Robbie and I’s time with All Hands Volunteers in Nepal. After we concluded our time with them, we were able to travel to a couple of other places in Nepal before we left. We visited Pokhara, in the western area of Nepal, and Bhaktapur, which is just outside of Kathmandu. We were able to get some well-deserved rest as well as enjoy the outdoors and historical sights of Nepal. We enjoyed the rest of our time in Nepal (for the most part) and headed back to the states ready to see our family and friends.

Since we’ve been back in the U.S., we bought an RV (officially named Ruby Sue), took a road trip down to Oklahoma to visit family and friends, and just recently headed west to see more of the U.S. That’s right, we are on our U.S. road trip and our first stop is Wyoming.

Oklahoma!

Oklahoma!

We are slowly making our way up to Yellowstone National Park, located in the northwest corner of Wyoming. But first we stopped in Laramie, Wyoming, home of the University of Wyoming Cowboys and some decent street art. After sightseeing and a steak dinner, we headed to Medicine Bow National Forest. We pulled in after dark so we couldn’t see much. However, the next morning we work up to a beautiful backdrop! We would have liked to stay longer but we needed to make it to Yellowstone before the end of the day so we moved on. If anyone in Denver is looking for some decent camping nearby, Medicine Bow NF would be the place!

We finally made it to Yellowstone where we plan to spend a few days soaking up the sights. I will post again soon about our trip through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

    Looks like it’s a bit colder up there than here in Thornton! Was 88 today and the high was 65 last Saturday. I’m missin my roomies! Its awfully quiet around here, was hard to get used to again for the first few days. Hope you two are enjoying your drive around the countryside, sounds like a lot of fun! Love you! Mom
    P.S. Got my new lawn mower today, works like a charm and very quiet plus light weight. Woo hoo! Exciting times at GiGi’s!!
