Teddy Roosevelt National Park

Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt became the 26th President of the United States of America at the age of 42. He became known as the Conservationist President by preserving and protecting 230 million acres of land of ecological and scenic value including 18 national...

Voyageurs National Park

We knew that this was a water park and intended to canoe into it and spend at least one overnight on an island. But alas, our island lust lessened over the course of the prior week on Isle Royale so we decided to just take on the visitor centers and some short hikes....

Isle Royale National Park

  Let’s start with what the plan is – We left Texas headed to Chicago to visit with a whole lotta relatives who were gathered there for the Fourth of July. We spent a week with them and then jumped a plane to Boston to visit with Bryan and Katelyn on our way to tackle...

Acadia National Park

We toured the east coast parks in the winter and left off Acadia due to its location. We knew we would get up to Boston to check in on Bryan, Katelyn and the grand pigs at which time we would head up to Acadia. Well with Tex tucked in nicely in Chicago we headed to...

Back in the United States!

We enjoyed little R&R in Austin before hooking Tex up and heading up to Chicago to spend the Fourth of July with relatives. We were able to park Tex next to our brother’s house and spend some time with our son Chris who brought along his amazing girl, Ellie.   Our...

Lake Como, Italy

So, to complete our European tour we left Switzerland by train and headed to Lake Como, Italy. Lake Como has been a favorite retreat for many of the elite class dating back to the Roman times. Today George Clooney, Richard Branson, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone all have...

Grindelwald, Switzerland

We left Innsbruck early because we knew we were going to have to catch four different trains to make it to Grindelwald before nightfall. Our trip entailed a seven-hour journey culminating with a meeting with the people renting us a chalet in the Swiss Alps. Travel by...

Innsbruck, Austria

Reluctantly we decided that a visit to Vienna would take up more time than we realistically had to do the city justice. Instead we found Innsbruck just a short train ride from Salzburg and on the way to Switzerland! Arriving with no set plans we inquired at the train...

Salzburg, Austria

Our three-month stint in Europe quickly morphed into a sole month remaining on the calendar. Much as we liked to fly by the seat of our pants, we came to the realization that planning would be key to fitting in some not to miss sights on our wish list. At the...

Munich, Germany

Leaving the rental car at the Madrid airport, and working out our itinerary on the fly, we hopped a plane to Germany! Traveling with an open plan is a daunting yet freeing experience and we are so glad to have had the time and energy to go down this path. We arrived...

  • The lake is a caldera which is the depression that is left after a volcano erupts. The island on the left is a caldera inside the caldera. We took a boat to the island and hiked to the bottom. We highly recommend the #hike .
