It's Quirky, It's Artsy, It's Funky, It's Our Favorite Small Town ~ Bisbee, Arizona

{Date of Visit: Dec 15, 2014 - Jan 15, 2015}

For those of you who follow our Facebook page and/or Instagram it will come as no surprise when I tell you I LOVE Bisbee, Arizona. I didn't intend for it to happen but when we first visited this little, artsy town back in the winter of 2013 it was love at first sight. So, when Clark suggested we spend the holidays there I didn't hesitate to make reservations at the one and only RV park in town, Queen Mine RV Park. This little park is a no frills (unreliable wifi, no playground, no clubhouse, no pool, no hot tub), somewhat crowded, 25 space gravel lot which sits atop a hill above the Queen Mine. But, at $350 per month it's a great deal because it's only a 5 minute walk to the historic area, which I went to almost every single day of our month long stay.

IF, by some weird chance you decide to make Bisbee "just" a day trip then the best way to get to know, and really appreciate this town, is to climb its' stairs.…

Facing Our Fears at Picacho Peak State Park, Arizona

{Dates of Visit Dec 12-15, 2014}

After completing yoga school, we pretty much hightailed it from Northern California to Glendale, Arizona for our solar install. One stop we made was at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in Chowchilla to spend a few days with Robin and Jeremy of Live, Breathe, Move. While it was wonderful to catch up with them and play a round of golf, there wasn't anything about the area that would bring me back. And...I really want to get this blog moving so you'll just have to read their blog post if you're curious about the park. You can read all about the solar install here.

Once we were ready to roll again we asked Ron, our installer at D&R's Family RV,where we should head to test out our new system. He recommended Picacho Peak State Park, about 85 miles south of his shop. We felt it would be an ideal spot since we'd still be close enough should something in the system go wrong yet was in the right direction since we already had reservations i…

Hiking (a few miles of) the Pacific Crest Trail...Lassen Volcanic National Park

{Dates of Visit: Sep 15-30, 2014}

The wheels on the Mutiny kept turning. I (Lynn) had to be in Grass Valley, California on October 10th for a 30 day immersion for Yoga Teacher Training. The course was paid for and pretty much all of our travels the past 4 months revolved around getting me there on time. With just a few more weeks to go before I'd be living at an ashram, disconnected (for the most part) from the rest of the world, we wanted to take advantage of new places and get a chance to hike part of the Pacific Crest Trail in two different states (a dream come true even though I'd love to hike the entire trail).

Having lived in Northern California for 20+ years it may come as a surprise that I hadn't been to Lassen Volcanic National Park, until now. California is home to so many wonderful State and National Parks, and the state is pretty big, that it's easy to put off seeing everything. And truthfully, my 60+ hour work week left me pretty exhausted. Vacation time w…
