Hotel Meade at Bannack Ghost Town in Montana.

News for the Week

Hotel Meade at Bannack Ghost Town in Montana.

From Donna: Alan and I have always enjoyed the times our cruises have called on Barcelona. It’s such a lovely city. The terrorism attack that targeted tourists in La Rambla this week  is tragic. How many of us have walked that promenade while exploring Barcelona? We’re so sorry for the loss of life and those who […]

Pilot Mountain, North Carolina

From Donna: I’m declaring August, “The month everyone looked up.” First off, this weekend is the peak viewing time for the Perseides meteor shower. Planning on hosting friends for a party? Space.com shows you where and when to look. And then there’s the hoopla over the solar eclipse, which is August 21, 2017. Don’t expect […]

Akaka Falls in Hawaii.

From Donna: The Bitterroot Valley is currently smoked in from area forest fires, which means that Alan and I are searching for an escape. The U.S. economy is obviously doing well because there are no rooms to be found on the Oregon Coast—a two-day drive from our house. Of course the upcoming solar eclipse is […]

Wildlife on Top of the World Highway

From Donna: I have the travel itch. Maybe it’s due to the smoke in the Bitterroot Valley (sorry, no hiking report to give you this week). Or it could be the summer doldrums. Or perhaps it’s because I’ve been busy writing travel articles from previous trips. You can guess where this is going. Our motto: […]

Miles Canyon in White Horse

From Donna: Wildfire season is in full swing in the western U.S, which is one of the reasons that I’m not posting a hiking report this week. There are lots of fires in our corner of Montana. And if you’re visiting national parks like Yosemite, Glacier or Yellowstone, there’s a good chance you’ll experience some […]

From Donna: What is it about summer that makes us want to get out and go? It’s only a matter of time before Alan and I take a spur-of-the-moment boomer road trip. When we do, we’ll be using Along the Way, one of our favorite road trip apps for discovering scenic attractions, gas stations, even […]

From Donna: Do you have plans for the 4th of July weekend? Alan and I usually stay close to home on this busy holiday. But we’re hoping to hike one day (missed our hike this week because of potential rainy weather. Yes, we’re wimps). And we’re also planning to take the ATV to the Big […]

Alaska's Frederick Sound

From Donna: Oh man, the weather has been gorgeous in Montana. And it’s predicted to continue like this for a week or so. What would you do—sit behind a computer most of the day or get out and explore? Hey, we’re not getting any younger so I vote for exploring! Alan and I are taking […]

From Donna: Our region of Montana has experienced above normal rainfall. If you’re traveling to Glacier National Park soon, pack a raincoat! Curious about the status of Going to the Sun Road? Check snow plowing progress here. It’s still going to be awhile before the road opens to vehicular traffic. In the meantime, marvel at […]

Grizzly bear at Fish Creek in Hyder, Alaska.

From Donna:  Do you travel in the summer? Alan and I tend to use the season to explore in our own backyard, leaving traffic-congested interstate highways and busy airports to family travelers or those still working who don’t have the luxury of traveling when they choose. Summer is also a great time for catching up […]
