That was sad, but Joy does come:
Sherry and I have traveled a lot. That is not bragging, it is just what we want to do. We are fortunate to have set-foot-in, and visited every state in the USA and many countries. Most of the time it has been done as my grandsons’ would say, ‘on the cheap’. I am definitely not ashamed of being frugal or traveling reasonable.
We have visited famous ‘tourist destinations’ and camped in state and national parks. We saw and enjoyed the same entertainment and sights that folks in hotels were paying 100-200$ a night to see. But all that aside.
We are asked many times, “What is the most interesting place you have ever visited?” Traveling it seemed that so many things gave me joy.
I learned there is nothing like laying back in a mountain stream clothes and all when you are just exhausted from climbing over a mountain.
The most exhilarating feeling I can ever remember was looking down from a mountain peak and seeing eagles and hawks soaring BELOW us.
Hiking through the Smokys I got a kick out of a family hiking. They were ‘home’ schooling. The day I saw them the mother was ‘mountain’ schooling them on the flora of the region.
It is impossible to miss the fearlessness and dedication of young girls 16-18yrs old and Grandmas hiking alone, with enthusiasm in the wilderness.
It is truly impossible to pick one place. The inspiration of Rushmore with its massive ‘ART’. Then to see the ongoing carving of Crazy Horse. The massiveness of the Grand Canyon is spectacular.
San Antonio’s River Walk should be seen when you visit the Alamo. The Walk is just across the street.
You shouldn’t miss the other missions in San Antonio.
