On-The-Road Day 10 Canyonlands National Park

When we left Mesa Verde yesterday we headed northwest into Utah to visit Canyonlands National Park. ¬†Canyonland is a very different place but also much like the Grand Canyon in its majesty. Here are some pictures: Have to have one last picture of Mesa Verde that I took just the evening before we left. It is a sun drenched view of the Cliff Palace. I … Continue reading On-The-Road Day 10 Canyonlands National Park

But given that there was little walking it was good for my aching knees. Tomorrow we will visit the picture puzzle super-store and then likely make a dash for home. Since not much happened today I thought I would give … Continue reading On The Road – Omaha (Day 6) More on Boy’s Town…

On The Road – Omaha (Day 5)

It was a very interesting day today. We spent the first part of it at Father Flannigan’s Boys Home and then went to the Spirit of Nebraska Wilderness Project in the downtown area. It is nice to see that the Boys Town is still a thriving mission and that they have been welcoming girls for over thirty years. The story of the place was quite inspiring and … Continue reading On The Road – Omaha (Day 5)
