Joseph Stewart State Park, Set 1: Lost Creek Lake Pano and...Our First Outing with our New RV was a SMASHING SUCCESS!! (+10 insets!)

(+10 insets!) Please view large, you'll love it!! (for photo info, please scroll down to "Today's Pictures") Steve and I arrived home yesterday afternoon from our 4-night stay at Joseph Stewart State Park and it went PERFECTLY!! Everything went as we'd hoped! We got everything packed, the trailer attached to the truck hitch, and away we went! The roads were clear, the weather was perfect and we encountered no problems whatsoever on the 45-minute drive to the park. The exhaust brakes are AWESOME! There i…

Joseph Stewart State Park, Set 2: Beauty Near and Far! (+10 insets!)

(+10 insets!) For photo info, please scroll down to "Today's Pictures". Trip Talk: State Parks RULE! Until Steve and I got our first trailer, neither of us had ever stayed at a state park before. Honestly, we didn't think they would be anything special. Knowing that state parks often don't get proper funding, I imagined that the campgrounds would be plain, simple and boring--just a place to stay which was close to park trails but otherwise forgettable. How much more wrong could I be? Joseph Stewart State…

Joseph Stewart State Park, Set 3: The Beauty Never Ends! (+10 insets!)

Trip Talk: History is the missing puzzle piece to "KNOWING" a place! I must admit that I haven't made much time in my life for history since I graduated high school. I enjoy the subject but it's so…yesterday! Present day and future events have always grabbed my attention and left me saying to myself, "I'll look into the history of this later." Except that I never get around to it…and now I'm 55 years old and most of the history I learned as a student has drifted away over the years. Lately I've come to r…

Joseph Stewart State Park, Set 5: Resin Droplets! (+6 insets!)

(+6 insets!) (please view large!) For info about the pictures today, please scroll down, down, down to "Today's Pictures". Trip Talk: Taking Time to Relax on a Trip Steve and I know all about the problems of trying to pack too much into a trip. Even when we specifically built in extra time for a destination or made sure to do less, we still felt stressed out over the desire to see more. It's made us realize that when we travel, we need to spend a lot more time at each place so we can relax and enjoy ourse…

Joseph Stewart State Park, Set 5: Morning Light and Fall Magic (+11 insets!)

(+11 insets!) (Please scroll down to "Today's Pictures for inset information) Trip Talk: Little Upgrades and the First Two Projects: Our Bedrooms! Our new trailer is going to be a perfect way to travel around the country! That being said, we need to upgrade some things before we are satisfied with its current state. Steve's done lots of little additions around the place, such as adding felt dots and rubber bumpers to doors so they close quietly and don't bang into walls. We noticed they neglected to put c…

Joseph Stewart State Park, Set 6: Brave Mushroom and Visions of Fall (+10 insets!)

(+10 insets!) (Please scroll down to Today's Insets and Final Thoughts about Photography at Joseph Stewart for added picture information) This will be my last set of nature pictures from our trip to Joseph Stewart State Park (I have another set of metal detector finds to finish off my trip pictures). My main image is one of my very favorite macro subjects! For the Love of Mushrooms Have you ever gone out with the specific intention to find mushrooms? They aren't always easy to locate! On my first outing…
