That's a beautiful part of the country that I haven't spent much time in, but would like to at some point.
This is the first summer here that there is no snow showing in the back country mountains. Very scary for us, knowing there's no snow. The Going to the Sun road (in Glacier) was closed for over a week because of rain and landslides...not avalanches.

Shrek and I would be happy to show you the best places in Glacier.

I much prefer hiking in wooded areas. It gets so quiet, then if you listen, it gets quite active with all kinds of animal and bird sounds and sights. The best woods though, for me, are located as close as possible to a lake, then you can have the best of two worlds.

We both like to winter vacation on the ocean either in Florida or Mexico. It breaks up our ( usually cold) winters.

That's gorgeous, but aren't there a bunch of 'skeeters?

Seascapes for me. We go to Aruba every year the ocean and surrounding are beautiful and relaxing. We love to travel the New England seacoast and visit the seacoast towns that started life as fishing villages and now have grown.

The sunset and the fofoti tree are in Aruba. The others in Gloucester and Rockport.

Love'em, Andy!

When I was a LOT younger, I use to go up to Rhode Island to stay with my uncle, in Little Compton, Rhode Island. There is a certain charm to New England coastal towns that set the Atlantic apart from the more tourist laden BS Towns the range from Atlantic City, all the way down to the Keys. I LOVE New England!

Because of our backgrounds, my husband and I whizzed by much of the USA in our lives. When he retired, we bought a trailer, and he said, now I'm going to stop any time we see something. And we did. Spent three years looking at all the places that you see that are in the U.S. We settled down again, but had a great time. I personally, would be a city person if I had the chance. I married a guy who wants to live in the country, and we settled on a small midwestern town and love it here. Yes, it was one of the many places we stopped when we were in the trailer.
