Six Month Western “Vacation”

How can we be taking a “vacation”?  We’re retired!

Well, we are taking off six months from volunteering to travel across the northern plains, visit Mt. Rushmore area, Grand Teton & Yellowstone.  We then plan to make our way to the Four Corners of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona to visit Arches, Canyonlands, Hovenweep, Mesa Verde and the sites around that area.  We will head toward Sedona, then on to southern Arizona, planning to arrive at Quartzsite in January 2018 to join other Escapees for the “gathering” held there annually.

Then we will be volunteering at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in March – May 2018
