Machu Picchu Monday Eclipse Version

And it’s not even Monday.

It’s been a crazy week since we returned from Wyoming & the lovely Shoshone National Forest to see the Great Solar Eclipse 2017. We’re trying to keep up with a variety of work related projects, family issues, and just the normal day to day stuff. Watching the news seems mesmerizing as we watch the destruction and displacement of Hurricane Harvey in Texas. Daily temperatures have been climbing to 105F, and our brains have turned to mush, hence the tardy post.

We’d like to share our recent adventure here…

Before The Eclipse

We made our way to Wyoming with a side detour to Bryce Canyon National Park. It had been a while, so we had forgotten the grand beauty of the area.

After a night there, we meandered to Green River, Wyoming for a rest before “heading into the wild.” Read more

Tbt: Old Lima

Thursday already? Sheez, I have too much to do…enjoy & have an amazing weekend.

Here’s an old shot of the Plaza de Armas in Lima. It’s a historic and delightful place.
