I've been everywhere.

Do you know that Johnny Cash song?
"I've been everywhere".  Well I sure haven't been everywhere, but I have been
enjoying the places that we have been.  Maybe one day I'll be able to see all the places
from that song.

Last time I posted we had left Zion and we were in Moab, UT.
We spent a whole week there in Moab and enjoyed it so much. 
So much to do there with so many National Parks near by.
We visited Arches and Canyonlands.  Both Breathtaking parks.

We pulled out of Moab yesterday and we are now parked in a little town called 
Cortez, CO.  It is the City right before you get to Mesa Verde National Park.
Our stay here won't be too long. Maybe another day or two.  Just flying by the seats of our
pants here.  



Here are some random shots from our week.



  The trees were in full bloom in Moab.


 Our early morning hike..  Coffee is a must.
It just kept getting in the way of my shots. LOL



 Here is my Fence shot for this week meme 
"Good Fences" It's a nice strong fence don't ya think. 



 Just one of the many Arches we saw on our hike.
So much prettier in real life.



As much as I have been enjoying the scenery, 
I am not a huge fan of the desert.  I think its because I lived there way too long.
So I had to throw in another shot that didn't looks so deserty.. Is that a word. LOL.


Linking up to GOOD FENCES


If you would like to see more of our travels you can hop on over to my
hubby's blog HERE.  He gives way more detail and more photos of where we have been.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I do appreciate all the Love you guys give me.

Any guesses on where our next stop might be?

Hugs~

You are on such an adventure. Enjoy your travels. Love the photos, the light is just beautiful.

Robyn Goddard said...

Linda,
Your spring shots from last week are pretty. What colorful beautiful blossoms.

Coffee, can't live without it!

Thank you for the lovely blog comment and virtual hug this morning; I needed that.

Valerie-Jael said...

Wonderful photos, you sure are getting around! Those arches look fantastic, and the coffee mug has to make a good photo! hugs, Valerie

Julie said...

I'm so pleased to be sharing your adventures, virtually taking me to places that I'm sure I will never visit for real.lucky you're such an amazing photographer, if it was me taking you virtually, you'd be missing out on lots and thinking you needed eyeglasses lol! Have fun, Julie x

I sure do know that song - and I love that you guys are flying by the seat of your pants - being & going everywhere. And I love your photos!
I feel the same - Utah was one of the most dramatic & beautiful places we've visited - but the deserty (I think it should be a word if it's not) parts of the world aren't my favorite. I love green & blooms & the softer life. :) But I love to see it all - and you capture it all superbly.
Happy trails!!

Gay Peplow said...

Great photos again Linda, lovely to share your travels :D Where next I wonder :D Have fun, hugs Gay x

Carol Blackburn said...

All of your pics are fabulous but I can do without any bees, thank you. I only like winter because there are no bees and things that go buzzzz. I am trying to be a brave girl now that Spring is here.

Linda Breedlove said...

All that gorgeousness and coffee, too! How perfect!!! What fabulous, fabulous shots!!! Keep 'em comin', girl... please!

Charlene said...

Well girl you are all over the country and I love these shots!!! Have fun and just enjoy the beautiful surroundings!!!

Jacqueline said...

Enjoying that beautiful blossom and the bees - hope you are well!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love your photos of these amazing part of our country. I almost moved there....years ago. Spent a little time there and it was so remote and different! Beautiful photos. The Arches don't show up as BIG as they really are! Have a good week! Sweet hugs, Diane

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Linda these are fantastic photos again. The arche is breathtaking.

eileeninmd said...

The arch is awesome, great capture. And the flowers are lovely. Beautiful photos and great fence shot. Have a happy day and weekend ahead!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Linda,
You are quite a photographer and those are excellent shots. Love the spring blossoms and also that sturdy and perfectly built fence.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Love love love the photos!!! Off to see hubby's!!!!

Gail Dixon said...

That strong fence reminds me of Smith Rock in Oregon. Are you going there next? Your photos are very beautiful. I'm going to check out your hubby's blog next! :)

Kamana said...

thank you for taking me along on your journeys. love seeing the world through your eyes.

Davi said...

I love Arches Nat park, such fun getting to journeying around with you! The flowers are so pretty and soft looking and that is a cool fence.

Sylvia said...

I am so happy to see all the photo's, Linda, the blooms are gorgeous! Have a wonderful time in Cortez, not my part of the state, but beautiful never the less. You may never want to leave Colorado! Happy camping!

Tracy said...

So the coffee like s selfies huh? LOL. WOWZA that arch looks amazing. I know what you mean about looking so much more in person. No matter how good the camera is it's just not the same as our eyes. Great pics and I'm looking forward to the next stop. Hugs!

Ida said...

I've visited Arches National park and loved it. So much beauty in those rock formations. It was hot but great for people with Asthma because the air was nice and dry there. Wonderful shot of the arch & such pretty flower/bees photos.

Sue Lelli said...

FAB photos, Linda! LOVE the flowers and bees and that Magnificent arch! I thought of you today. HGTV had the largest RV show in the country on and they were touring different styles of RVs. Just Amazing!

Virginia Lu said...

Your stunning photos had me going "wow, wow, wow"! Thanks for sharing the beautiful scenes that you had been to lately. I am sorry that I don't comment as much here. But that doesn't mean I think of you less! Wish you enjoy all the special moments in your travels! Cherish, Linda!

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

All your shots are delightful. Green surrounds and spring flowers are such serene scenes. The desert is striking but I know what you mean.

Claire said...

I'm not a desert-lover either - fantastic for a visit, then I need to see 'proper' trees and flowers!
Wonderful photos :)
Happy Friday xx

Lynn said...

loved all these delicious shots-your flower and bee photos are light and so delicate and I do enjoy your hubby's blog as well-can't wait for the MV shots, 'oh happy days' is the song that comes to mind when I visit both of you...happy weekend.

yyam said...

I'm so glad that you've been enjoying yourself. It does seem like your sky is way bluer than mine...magical shots as always. Hope you continue to enjoy your journey!

Ros Crawford said...

Beautiful shots ... I just love the blossom ... I love seeing where you are and what a happy 'hippy' life you are living ... Sending hugs

Sarah Huizenga said...

I agree about the desert. I visited Arizona too many times as a kid, while my Grandmother lived there. Living in Michigan I prefer green grass, trees and large bodies of water.

Buttons said...

Well I have to say I am loving the desert:) Those silly coffee cups always do that:) Beautiful beautiful pics. Enjoy everywhere man. Hug B

Audrey Pettit said...

I absolutely love that you guys are living life flying by the seat of your pants! And love that you share your adventures with us all, so that we can fly with you! What gorgeous places you have seen this week. I would love to visit Arches park one day. Moab is now on my list, too!

Kathy McB said...

Oh my...you are truly living the life! Totally envious. Someday I would love to do this

Snap said...

Love the blossoms and the bees. The arch is great and the fence is good and solid! The colors of the desert are what has always fascinated me. I'm enjoying your traveling and glad you are too! Happy Friday!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Have to say I'm a bit jealous of your adventures Linda -- how do you get your mail? :)

It's me said...

Lovely !!!...enjoy the weekend darling....love Ria...x !

Naquillity said...

so many beautiful images. i especially love the one of the blossoms & bee. your travels sound exciting. glad you're both having a good time. safe continued travels. have a great day~

Karen said...

Beautiful blooms! I love the desert, but maybe it's because I have never lived there!

Deb said...

beautiful photos!

Becca said...

Hi Linda! First off, yes I know that JC song thanks to working with Dr. P. in surgery. Lol Also, Yes, deserty is a word in my book…I use it all the time! Lovely shots here. I know what you mean though. There is some stunning scenery in Utah and you've captured it well, but it doesn't have to be your favorite climate! I'm loving all the springy flowers too. Have a wonderful day today, the weather is nice and we'll be heading out for the Mariner's game later. :-)

Brian King said...

Love that fence! And the arch is fantastic!

S. Etole said...

Such contrasts between the blossoms and the desert. All have their own beauty.

Sandra said...

nice strong and very handsome fence and gorgeous photos. especially the arch

Terry said...

Yes you do get around and that is awesome! More photos to love of your adventures! We are thinking about a motorhome near us for sale! Not sure if 32' might be a bit much for a first timer. Enjoy the weekend.

Barbara said...

So good, the arch is just so so cool Melinda. I have never seen anything like that in person and would love to. The fence post composition is spot on, gorgeous. wonderful photos.

Linda said...

Gorgeous bee and blossoms!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Those shots sure look non-desert (my kind of words, LOL) Thought about you both, we are in Seattle and wish you are somewhere close! : )

Lisa Gordon said...

My goodness, these are beautiful, Linda.
What an adventure you are having.

You have a wonderful weekend, my friend. xo.

Kim Stevens said...

These are fabulous, and I love the fact that your coffee got into your shot! lol

julieprice3 said...

Hugs julie P

Catherine said...

You are seeing some beautiful places Linda! Perhaps you will make it to Canada some day? Southwest Saskatchewan perhaps? :)
Enjoy your travels my friend.
xo Catherine

Emily Keaton said...

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos, Linda! We spent time in both Arches and Mesa Verde on our big trip in 2012. Loved seeing everything in both places! Boy, it was hot when we visited Arches, though. I bet that it's so much nicer at this time of year. Enjoy flying by the seat of your pants!!!

Mona Pendleton said...

Such pretty photos Linda! Moab is one of my most favorite places on Earth. It really is breath taking. Be safe and enjoy the ride :)

Barb said...

So glad to hear you're in CO and planning to stay awhile. Hope you don't get stuck in any snow in the next few days! I've taken many photos of that arch - beautiful in every light.
