SUMMER WANDERING …

Last year we took Missy K through Yellowstone (Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole) and were on the road for three weeks…..after ingesting 10 lbs of Twizzlers and enough Pringles to launch an Ark we decided this year would be closer to home. So, we decided on Arches, Canyon Lands in Moab and Capitol Reef…..might I…
