Willow Bay in The Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania provided a beautiful and relaxing setting for our 2007 Forest River Georgetown. Access to the waterfront provided unending entertainment for 5 Labrador Retrievers.

I took this photo of our Monaco Windsor and Pontiac Trans Am toad when we stopped to take a break at the top of the Red Mountain Pass (elevation 11,801) in the San Juan National Forest. We were en route from Blue Mesa, Colorado to Mancos, Colorado. The picture was taken in September of 2008.

We are full-timers, and we usually visit Colorado at least once a year, as our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson live near Denver. Driving through the mountains is always breathtaking (and I mean that in a good way!) and beautiful!

Looking at this beauty and solitude, it's hard to believe that our Monaco Windsor is parked approximately a half mile off of the Interstate in Longmont, Colorado! This is our favorite site at St. Vrain State Park (formerly called Barbour Ponds). We stay here when we are visiting our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson. This was taken in April of this year, when I went for a walk with my Grandson, Zach.

This was taken the year before in Elk Meadows RV park. It's on forest road 88 about 5 miles North of Trout Lake Washington. The view out the windshield is Mt. Adams, which is only about 8 miles away. This is one of our favorite places to camp. Each campsite is a private alcove with thick forest between your site and the next. Here is a link to the park's website: Elk Meadows

The coach is a 1997 40' Safari Continental.

Jasper, Alberta, Canada campsite. We are at a neighbor's camp fire when the Bull Elk came defending his territory. Doe Elk were bedded down all around our motorhome. The coach is a 1994 Marathon H3-40.

Our National RV Tropi-Cal is pictured at our campsite in Goblin Valley State Park, near Hanksville, Utah. The park contains thousands of mushroom-shaped pinnacles or hoodoos a few feet high that someone obviously thought resembled goblins. Several Hollywood movies were filmed here, i.e. City Slickers, City Slickers ll and Galaxy Quest. From our campsite we could see several buttes and mesas in the far distance.

This picture was taken in the spring of 2007 in the Palo Duro Canyon in Texas. We spent a week there in our 2005 National Tropical Lx.

The scenery is beautiful with spectacular vistas and wild turkey along the roadside and in the camp.

September 2008; Autumn Leaves in Algonquin Provincial Park Ontario Canada. Our '03 Coachman is parked on the side of Highway 60 beside Brewer Lake about 50 kilometers east of the town of Hunstville in the district of Muskoka. The autumn colors in Algonquin Park are awesome and well worth the three hour drive from our home near Toronto. The trees are a symphony of red, orange and tellow..there are scores of beautiful, serene lakes; a slight chill is in the air and if you're really fortunate a curious moose or white tailed deer may present itself in a clearing. A good idea to keep a camera close at hand. Perfect weather for a little picnic in the very coach-friendly park setting.

July 2009: Our 03 Coachmen and our dog Angel (Who always travels with us and has her own special bed right up front between the driver's seat and the passenger's chair) at a very pretty country property and family cottage for lease site in Prince Edward Island, our smallest province in Atlantic Canada. PEI is small but picturesque and beautiful. One is never far from the ocean and getting there is a blast as you either arrive by ferry or do as we did..cross the "Confederation Bridge" a 10 kilometer over the sea highway similar to the Florida keys. It runs from New Brunswick to the seaside town of Borden-Carleton PEI. Second photo taken days later from the front window of the coach southbound on I-495 in Maine of dual rainbows which emerged after a rainstorm just as the sun was peeking through again.

Dear FMCA Friends,

I found a spot at Tallulah Falls State Park in northeastern Georgia, along US Route 23, from which to photograph "Baby Newell II," my 1997 Airstream 190 coach. The hiking trails are great there, too!

"Happy Cybercamping!"

Monument Valley in Utah was the site of many Hollywood westerns. John Wayne starred in many of these movies. We tucked our 2000 National Tropi-Cal into its assigned site at Gouldings Campground and settled in for the night and a spectacular starry sky before touring the valley the next day.

Stopped for lunch at a roadside rest area as we traveled through the Rocky Mountains on our way to Denver, CO from Hemet, CA to visit our daughter & son-in-law. Took this shot of our 2005 National TropiCal 37 ft motor home while I was exercising our dogs who went along with us. Absolutely breathtaking scenery through Utah and Colorado !
