Travel with Me: Lisbon and the Azores

Hello, blogging buddies. Do you like to hike and explore? Have you wanted to travel to a beautiful destination but the years roll on and it hasn’t happened yet? Maybe it’s been years since you took an international trip. Share with your spouse, your brother, your daughter or grandchild how traveling makes you feel alive when you experience another culture.

The only way destination traveling happens is by planning for it. I’m hosting a 9-day trip, July 2021, to Lisbon and San Miguel Island (with a possible ferry to the island of Terceira). Take a look at Motion Landscapes, a Rui Martins video of San Miguel island in the Azores archipelago to see where our small group will explore. Our departure city is Phoenix. If you live closer, your departure city and price will be altered.

Five Shots: Fossil Creek

Taking advantage of a supreme Arizona fall morning, Jim, Bear, and I drove out to Tonto Wilderness Area and hiked the waterfall trail at Fossil Creek, an artesian spring that bubbles out of the high ground with a concentrated amount of calcium carbonate on travertine creating terraces, steep waterfalls, and large pools. Emerald green water is the result and brings many to the area. This time of year, we beat any crowd and had the path to ourselves. Here are several shots from the area.  Which one do you like the best?

Five Shots: Bear and Our Adventures

I’ve been away from WP hard at work and apologize for missing your posts. It will be another month before I can get back to blogging regularly. Here are some shots featuring Bear, our beloved dog. He’s over nine now and a German Shepard has a tendency to get hip dysplasia. We have been on so many hikes and camping adventures — to see him struggle to stand up or jump up in the back of the truck reminds me that time flies and all things change. Which one do you like best?
