Have you ever been on a good time roll where you looked forward to the gauzy light of dawn to appear?
Or a string of days yielding to weeks and eventually months where you sported a 24/7 grin?
A run of fun where your legs and lungs were taking you to places of such beauty, you'd almost weep with joy? Or just sit down to take it all in?
That's the sort of summer I had. It was so great the Coleman Stove Cuisine I was creating tasted gourmet. Of course the Starbucks was hot and the IPAs were cold. Perfect.
A few months ago, I promised to show you "America the Beautiful." If you were following along, you got a taste on what's out west of Interstate 25.
Mr Trump, I have news for you, America is still great. Any country that affords its citizens the right to roam around free as a migrating Arctic Tern is great. A country who invented National Parks, Monuments, Historical Sites and Wilderness Areas can't be all bad. We might need a few tune ups but not a major overhaul from a "Reality TV" game show host.
So after that political rant: What would have made my Almost Perfect Summer Perfect?
The companionship of a Wandering, Wondering Woman, that's what.
I'm on the move again.
See where this roll takes me. It might surprise you.
Get a load of what's out west through these photos. There's so much to see...
