This side of paradise

Photograph by Mont Clare

This week has left us with fond memories of Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico (for about one mile) and Colorado. Tomorrow we will be heading to Denver and camping out for a few days before making our way to South Dakota. I'm pretty excited to visit the real Deadwood... anyone else a fan? Not to mention Mount Rushmore and Badlands where I will possibly attempt Sissy Spacek makeup.

The days have started warming up recently, I can really feel Summer nipping at my sandaled toes. Two days past we were driving through the semi-arid desert of Arizona, it was stinking hot and just as I thought I could take it no more we stumbled upon a giant lake where we were able to camp on the waterfront for the night,  it was a dream come true. There were about 100 other campers drinking and swimming, it was like one big beach party. Although I left with a nasty sunburn and a few new freckles it was the perfect escape from the desert heat.

In recent years i've grown accustomed to the life of an indoor cat, I stayed inside sewing day after day and when I dared venture out the sunlight hurt my eyes. Over the past few months my love for the great outdoors and nature has flourished, something about the balmy evenings and starry skies have won me over.
