Oh my goodness, I could have made twenty more posts at least…but really I have to go back to the order of the day.

You know, a trip like this, does more to me than just a good vacation.

Seeing Mother Nature in full glory and up close and personal…it takes my breath away.

It makes me pause, and think and value my believes in life. Does that make sense?

I feel blessed, very blessed to have made this trip and shared it my Mr. Walker and the Fabulous Friends.

RV Trip Part 5: Elks

DSC_9074

I wish, I could tell you what it really is like, to see the mighty Elk male in the prime of his life,  in the breathtaking scenery that Yellowstone Park is, especially when the cool wind ruffles through the dry grass.

The sunshine that makes his fur golden and  his shoulders seem even broader. His big body and sturdy trot expresses self assured power and dominance. When he moves his head from left to right with the impressive antlers, I can understand why the shamans from ancient times imitated him to mesmerize their people.

And all of a sudden, he bends his head backwards and his rutting call echoes through the mountains, a prehistoric sound that tells stories of heroics fights, of longing, of the King he is of his harem and his offspring.

And the only moose of the trip…whilst Mr. Walker and I were bravely hiking further uphill, our Fantastic Friends decided it was time for a break for them and don’t you know it…But fair enough, it was their first moose. We have seen plenty in Maine and Vermont…but still…

RV Trip Part 3: A Hike in the Desert

Our RV trip brought us to Utah and we went to Dinosaur National Monument. We saw indeed lots of interesting Dinosaurs but I want to tell you about our hike in the desert there.

DSC_8518

Can you believe it…only a few days earlier, we walked through the freezing winds in the Rocky Mountain and now we were in the hot desert.

DSC_8497

I had never been in a desert before. I found it hot and harsh but at the same time I was really amazed at and impressed with all the colors, the variety of plant and wildlife, adapted so well. It was of a stunning beauty of a kind I had never seen before.

Part two: Rocky Mountains at Denver, Colorado

DSC_8153

We started in Denver, Colorado and made a beautiful hike in the Rocky Mountains. It was breathtaking!

DSC_8207

Big Horn Sheep…it made me very happy to see them in the wild! They are so big and beautiful. Their coat seems so soft, their horns a work of art. And they can sit so perfectly still for such a very long time, I almost wondered if they were real. When one of them turned its head, it actually startled me!

P1010865

It was cold, windy and together with getting used to the altitude, it made the hike a nice challenge;0) And yes, the white stuff is snow. I was quite pleased after the hot Cincy summer. And the scenery made it worth while anyways!!!
