The practised arm chair traveler, I’ve been vicariously following daughter Connie, husband Bill, and two of their girls Amelia and Rita via photos as they’ve hiked in the Rockies for several days with daughter Sarah (a Denver resident). They are visiting Yellowstone today and tomorrow and promise many more photos. It’s a big park, says Connie.
Following the route son Richard and his wife took a few years ago, they will visit the Grand Teutons, Bryce Canyon and Mount Zion later this week, en route to the Grand Canyon and San Diego.
En route to Wyoming.
Everything out west is bigger.
Virginia is not a small state compared with those in the northeast, being about 300 miles wide at its base, or roughly the distance from London to Edinburgh. However, one can travel through four states in one day, making a large loop from our home in northern Virginia through Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, PA and Maryland. I’ve done the same thing driving through the six New England states from Boston on several occasions. You won’t whip through six western states in one day.
Sunday, two monks from the Benedictine Abby, Brother D and a new fellow ‘on probation’ for a year, visited. Its okay, says the probationer, but I miss my dog and parakeet who says ‘Jesus, Mary and Joesph’ all day.
Brother D says two of the brothers are walking the Camino in Spain. This leads to a discussion about the Charlie Sheen film. We will hear more about the Camino in a week or so.
