Travels 2018

Far Eastern Oregon; May – June 2018

After spending the first part of May in far eastern Nevada we moved on to far eastern Oregon. We made our way directly to one of our favorite places; Steens Mountain and Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. This remote southeastern corner of Oregon butts up against southwest corner of Idaho and northern Nevada where all three states come together in a vast open land of wild horses, wild rivers, high desert plateaus, and deep canyons of black volcanic rock. This is Owyhee Canyon country and it’s a long way to anywhere from here. Continue reading

Far Eastern Nevada; May 2018

We spent April in St George Utah and loved it (see our post, St George Utah, under CURRENT TRAVELS, Travels 2018). But we had plans to travel north, so we reluctantly left our beautiful campsite outside of St George and entered the remote basin and range country of eastern Nevada. This is the great wide-open, the epitome of the old west, a lonely land of vast empty plains punctuated by isolated high peaks still tipped with snow. Continue reading

St George, Utah; April 2018

After spending winter traveling between Arizona and Mexico we started northward in our 28’ fifth wheel trailer, following spring weather (see trip reports in CURRENT TRAVELS 2017 & 2018).  Our first stop; St George, Utah.  We had business in St George.  We were considering it, or Cedar City sixty miles to the north, as possible places to re-establish a home base from which to continue our travels.  We wanted to buy undeveloped land and build our home base there, the way we want it. Continue reading

Arizona into Utah; March – April 2018

After two months in Mexico and a quick visit with family in New Jersey we flew back to Tucson where we had our truck and fifth wheel trailer stored. We stowed away our backpacks, recovered our rig from storage, and drove to Gilbert Ray campground in the saguaro cactus desert of Pima County Mountain Park outside of Tucson. Our migration northward had begun. Continue reading

Baja California Sur; Feb – March, 2018

In mid-February we flew from Chihuahua Mexico to the southernmost tip of Baja California on our favorite Mexican airline, Interjet. We picked up our rental car at the San Jose del Cabo airport and immediately drove two hours north to La Paz, the small capital city of Baja California Sur along the shores of a gigantic bay on the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California). There we moved into an air bnb condominium that we’d reserved for the next ten days. Continue reading
