One year ago today I moved into my van and out of Omaha, Nebraska. I thought traveling around the USA for a year would change me and my life, I thought I would find my “place” in the world. Instead, I found I'm still me, just a little more interesting and the journey is my “place.” I never want to be stationary again.
To celebrate my anniversary, I bought all new LED lights to replace my old regular light bulbs. This way, maybe the next year of van dwelling will be even brighter.
Here are a few pictures of the places I have been. Come back one year from today, I'm sure I will have plenty more to show you...

|The Very Large Array, New Mexico|
|Point Wilson Lighthouse in Port Townsend, Washington|
|Red Rock, NV|

The Lyre River and it's surrounding forest is magical. When there, I feel as if I've fallen down the rabbit hole or perhaps a hobbit hole is more like it.
So this last trip I wanted to photograph the Lyre River in all it's enchanted glory to share with you. In doing so, I captured--dare I say it--a fairy!
Don't believe me? Take a look. I'm sure you will agree it's as magical as I say and, if not, I'm bewitched. What do you expect? ;D
|Amazing! But no fairies up there.|
|My favorite spot. But where the heck are the fairies?|
|No, no, that's not a fairy. That's my van, Glorie B, parked at our FREE campsite.|
|A beautiful path. Lets hope it leads us to fairies.|
|Seems like a fairy should be sitting on it.|
|The most magical tree I've ever seen. It should contain fairies.|
|Not only do the berries look like fairy food, look how clear the water is!|
|Oh, there she is!|
|Ok, so maybe she is not exactly what you expected.|
|But you have to admit, she is quite *charm*ing|

Okay, it’s been a while since I last posted. Actually, I have not posted since my travels began four months ago. So, I’ve been contemplating just how to jump back into the blog-o-sphere. I could detail my journey from the start, but this is a blog, not a book. So, I’ve decided to introduce my van home, Glorie B, by showing her off at a few of the places we have visited along the way...
|The Painted Desert National Park in Arizona has exactly what Glorie B loves--open road with artistic flair. The stratified waves of burnt orange, brown and red against a forget-me-not sky really gets her motor going.|
Glorie B likes long rolls along the beach (or in this case, The Colorado River in Page, Arizona). She had heard the Colorado River is green or brown. But was happy to see for herself it's as blue as her beloved ocean.
