Four wheel drive off-road exploring in Nevada’s Great Basin Desert I came across this big timbered log cabin.

In February 2019 I toured miles and miles of Texas including Big Bend National Park where the Chisos Blue Bonnets were in spectacular bloom. This photo was taken at sunrise on the way to Santa Elena Canyon.

Just a spare of the moment trip. Trona is only a couple hours away from our house. This was our second trip with this truck. What a joy to drive. We are 2000 pounds under weight. No airbags, no trussed hitch, no Rancho 9000s. Plenty of torque, but more important, lots of stopping power.

We were camping at Port Aransas RV Park on New Years for our anniversary with our camping friends. We decided to go camp on the beach our last night there. I woke up early to take pictures.

Camera Used – Phone

We were camping in the one of our favorite locations in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with a great view into the White Mountains on the border of California and Nevada.  Suddenly, a thunderstorm rolled in with violent winds.  We hustled to get the camper popped down, which is not an easy task when it’s windy!

Then we huddled inside to ride out the storm.  Suddenly, the winds, rain and thunder stopped.  We looked out the camper’s window to discover the most beautiful sight – a double full rainbow panorama in front of the White Mountains.  We realized the lesson here: you have to ride out the storm if you want the rainbow!
