Scotts Bluff National Monument, Nebraska





"Scotts Bluff National Monument, Nebraska". We got to this monument late in the day & had only a few minutes until they would close. We were only in the area for a short time so we quickly grabbed a bottle of water and rushed to check out these views. If you will notice in the last shot, those are Oregon Trail Ruts, still looking like they just happened just yesterday. The larger one is a road. Hope you can read the signage they had. I tried to zoom in for your viewing pleasure. ( :


Check out this vlog from the day. Such a gorgeous area. Beth ( :

One place I've never been to, but I'd love to see it for myself. Beautiful shots, Beth!

Wow, I would love to see those ruts...wonder how many people are buried along that trail and no one even knows.

That's beautiful countryside. Too bad you got there so late and couldn't explore more. I did enjoy the video and the views. - It's amazing those wagon train ruts are still there after all these years.
Amazing country! Lovely views!

Oh Beth...I am so far behind with everyone! Trying to catch up a little bit this morning. I loved this post! Wow! To see the wagon wheel ruts is amazing. The scenery is wonderful. It takes you back to those historic days, doesn't it? Great shots and video!

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend ...so I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
VERY SAD FACE. : (
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

Cove Point Lighthouse
I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
