Pony Express, Wyoming




Right after leaving "Register Cliff" we saw this plague & had to read it "Pony Express". I did a bit of zooming in but you can not quite get all the wording so let me tell you want it does say: "Pony Express Station 1860 - 1861", "XP Centre Star Trail 1860 - 1861". I have always wonder what it would be like to run for the "Pony Express"? I guess at times very dangerous but think of all the excitement & curious moments too!!! Beth ( :

The pony express was probably a very dangerous business. Very rough and tumble! Have a good day ,Beth

That is so interesting. I can't imagine what it would have been like to be a pony express rider. I imagine most of those guys were born with the dare-devil gene.

I cannot imagine being a rider for the pony express. I am sure I would have fallen off the horse.
You're so right. Such a different time of life!

Interesting and a lil scary I think!!! A cool background sky!!!

You visit some cool places!?!
It sure was a time of ponies that was romantic, wasn't it?
We're stopping delivery in Canada, with Community Postal Units being the norm. It's so sad...

Sometimes I think that the Pony Express would be faster then the Postal Service. - I agree it would have been interesting to have been a part of that time in history. What a great place to visit.

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Such a well cared for, gorgeous locations for camping and have a ton of fun... this is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed in ...Beth how can you say this you might ask? ...the bathrooms were well cared for, gorgeous views, pretty easy access to water for water exercise, kayaking, areas for group togetherness and locations to walk and just time to relax. Even close to many locations of MUST SEE SIGHTS, waterfalls, hiking and suchness. We were there for "Eggs on the Hiawassee" one of our Casita rallies. SO FUN!!



Please enjoy the vlog from that day. You can hear lots of bugs and birds. We just hopped into the waters behind our campsite and just rowed away. We have 2 other couples who did borrow our kayaks to enjoy these waters as well. So fun. I love going out on waters to enjoy the day and take some pics. There are duck families every where, but they didn't like it when you got close ...s…
