Stay On The Ride...It's Gonna Take You Somewhere

This post's title paraphrases some Patty Griffin lyrics that have become very pertinent to us all of the sudden. Steve has recently accepted a job at Carlsbad Caverns National Park!!!

The "ride", of course, is life and our life together is a celebration of EVERYTHING. In other words, we enjoy working a compost pile as much as we enjoy working our way up a set of switchbacks to an alpine meadow. So we bop about a bit but our adventures are the intertwined threads of our life's braided stream!

So from our beloved Midwestern forests, fens and prairies we meander down to the Chihuahuan desert, sky islands and vastness of southern New Mexico/Far West Texas.

Here are a few of the places we will be exploring:

Carlsbad Caverns National Park

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Big Bend National Park

Lincoln National Forest

That outta get us started:)

We certainly will continue all the activities that inspire us to blog but with a southwest flare!

Stay tuned.....
