Will We See You This Month?

So far on this trip, we have been fairly spontaneous with our schedule. In the past two months, we only had three appointments to keep with family and friends putting us up at their place or flying in to see us so we just kind of floated where we wanted to when we wanted to. This spontaneity gave us flexibility to stay longer in areas that we really enjoyed (i.e. San Francisco and Astoria, OR) but resulted in less time for other places (i.e. southern Oregon). It also made us miss seeing some people because we didn't know we were near them until after we were gone.

This month will be different. Not only are we making sure that we have time for everything and everyone we want to see, we are letting you know where we are going to be in advance. If we are going to be near you this month, please let us know! And if you have any recommendations for the areas we will be heading, let us know that as well!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!


Yesterday, the Curious Souls decided to take the dog for a walk. We were looking for somewhere that we had not yet been before, so we chose the  Pawnee National Grassland.  There were two very short trails in the western part of the grassland near Crow Valley Recreation Area. We hiked them both in under an hour (I said very short, right?) and were left wanting more. So, eastward we went on our way to  Pawnee Buttes . Along the way, we discovered the  Cedar Creek Wind Farm  and plenty of wide open space. After the Buttes, we looked at the map and discovered that we were only about 20 miles south of Nebraska. And, to seal the deal, we noticed that just over the border was also the highest point in the state. Here we are at the aptly named Panorama Point.  While only 5,424 feet in elevation it did have some lovely, long, expansive views into the seemingly infinite plains around us. As far as either of us could remember, this is the first time we actually visited the highest
