The town of Cortez rests among the mesas and open expanses of land in the Four Corners region. It has been a trading center for more than 2,000 years although ranching, tourism and light manufacturing support today's economy.

|Colorado Springs and North Platte, NE||2012-06-28|| Colorado Springs and North Platte, NE
Many of the places we wanted to visit in Colorado Springs were closed because of the fires. As a result, we cut our time there short and headed on to North Platte, NE.
|Winnebago Pre-Rally Week||2012-07-06||Winnebago Pre-Rally Week
Forest City, Iowa is a small town that comes alive for two weeks in July every year when Winnebagos from all parts of the country arrive for the Grand National Rally. We got here a week early to enjoy some of the local color and food.
|Winnebago Grand National Rally||2012-07-15||Winnebago Grand National Rally
There were about 935 motorhomes on the rally grounds for GNR this year. It was a bit humid but we all had lots of fun and kept busy with classes, tours, seminars and socializing.
|Traveling East||2012-07-22||Traveling East
The next leg of our journey had us traveling through Iowa, Illinois and Indiana on our way to Indianapolis. It's really sad to see the corn and soybean crops doing so poorly due to the drought.
A chance to visit family and friends
|Lake Erie Area||2012-07-30|| Lake Erie Area
This is one of the Great Lakes that we've never visited before. It's fun to explore a new area.
|Upstate New York and Massachusetts||2012-08-05||Upstate New York and Massachusetts
It's been fun discovering upstate New York and Massachusetts. The only time I've ever been in upstate New York was when I was about 8-years old and my mother wanted to find her old house in Catskill. And then in 4th grade we had a field trip to Sturbridge Village.
|Cape Cod||2012-08-12||Cape Cod
Cape Cod to artists is changing moods and patterns of light, color and space. To me, a visitor, it is beaches, sand dunes, lighthouses and beauty.

We are back in our old stomping grounds to check in with old friends and to attend Tryna's 50th high school reunion.
|Pennsylvania Dutch Country||2012-08-23||Pennsylvania Dutch Country
The rich farmland of this area was settled by the "plain people" (Amish and Mennonite) in Colonial times. They have retained the convictions and customs of their ancestors which are reflected in their dress, their work and the way they spend their leisure time.
|Washington D.C.||2012-08-30|| Washington D.C.
Washington D.C. pulses the heartbeat of our nation. It is the people it represents, the freedom it stands for, the history it preserves and the future it promises. The task of forging a visionary capitol of monuments, broad avenues and spacious circles fell upon French-born architect Pierre-Charles L'Enfant. Thanks to him, today we have a gorgeous capitol city.
|Eastern Virginia||2012-09-04||Eastern Virginia
Exploring this part of Virginia is like traveling back and forth between the past and the present. Not sure where we fit, but we've had a great week here.

John Lynch built the first tobacco warehouse in this region in 1757. During the Civil War, the Lynchburg area was a supply base for the Confederate Army. It was also the area where the Civil War ended.
|Frankfort/Lexington, Kentucky||2012-09-17|| Frankfort/Lexington, Kentucky
Frankfort, the state capitol, is surrounded by wooded hillsides and divided by the S-curve of the Kentucky River as it meanders through the Bluegrass Region. Lexington is the commercial center of Bluegrass Country. It has a rich historical heritage centered on Thoroughbred horses and tobacco.
|Western Kentucky||2012-09-21||Western Kentucky
The area called Land Between the Lakes is definitely Kentucky's outdoor playground. It is strip of National Recreation land that is between Kentucky and Barkley Lakes and runs into Tennessee.
|Branson, Missouri||2012-09-24||Branson, Missouri
Branson is a small southwestern Missouri bug tucked deep into the hills and hollows of the Ozarks. It is relatively isolated from big cities and major interstates but yet has lots to see and do.
Back to Iowa to get work done on the coach but this is a much better time to come here. Beautiful fall weather.
|Houston Area||2012-10-06||Houston Area
We first stopped north of Houston on Lake Conroe for some relaxation and to visit family of long-time friends and then went south so we could explore that area and Galveston.
