Adventures in Upstate New York

My husband Ross and I were eager to begin our RVing adventure with a few days exploring parts of New York we hadn’t seen before. What began as a dreary day turned sunny and warm while we drove.

Background on City of Rocks State Park

The City of Rocks State Park IS a page right out of history.  This natural wonder was created millions of years ago, a product of a volcanic monstrosity. The searing fragments piled high forming giant masses, a sort of welding process.  Eventual erosion created the pillars and other various rock formations we see today.

There are still signs of early inhabitants throughout the area, most notably grinding tools. Wildlife and vegetation specific to the Southwest bring life and variety to this bedrock. Read more about Background on City of Rocks State Park

3 Things You need to know about Workamping!

MAKING THE MOST OF MIDLAND, TX

We were delighted this January to get a phone call inviting us to spend a week or two at a campground in Midland, TX. We had passed through Midland as we headed to Arizona (staying at a local Walmart) and while it was clear that it’s a large city, it’s in the middle of the oil fields and we weren’t too motivated to explore it as we couldn’t picture ourselves staying for the long-term. That being said, it has plenty to do, and nearby San Angelo is full of super-nice people and a thriving arts scene too. Read more about MAKING THE MOST OF MIDLAND, TX

Strataca: Underground Salt Museum in Hutchinson, Kansas

 To Climb or Not to Climb…There’s No Question!
