THEY’RE STILL RIDIN’ AND ROPIN’ IN MONTANA, especially at Deer Lodge.  We just happened upon a calf branding at the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site, a short walk from our campground.  The Ranch was owned by Conrad ... Read more >

Idaho: More Than Potatoes

USA | Wednesday, 5 Jul 2017 | Views [274]

DESPITE THE “FAMOUS POTATOES” SLOGAN on the license plates, Idaho is known as the Gem State.  There are plenty of potatoes, to be sure, plus wheat, alfalfa, soybeans and more.  But you don’t have to be one of Van Gogh’... Read more >

AS THE SECOND PART OF THE TRIP (Rainforest and Rockfowl) started, things unraveled even more.  Both Heinz and I had some sort of virus.  I could — and did — remain behind and rest up but Heinz had to soldier on.  Roger, from ... Read more >

Cameroon: Benoue and Waza National Parks

CAMEROON | Monday, 10 Apr 2017 | Views [201]
