Utah, the Scenery and the Inside Scoop

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

So we are now in Salt Lake City, nearing the 49th parallel again. The past two days of driving showed us some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable. Two days ago we made the drive through Monument Valley near sunset. It was hard to figure out what not to photograph. The variety of colours and […]

SXSW Austin – part deux

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

What can I say that Miranda didn’t mention… one thing is the parties. We have got to thank the fine folks at Six Shooter Records for the info on the parties and inviting us to their party. That party was wicked… wooo hooo, the brood boys and Luke Doucet were awesome. Wendy and Shauna were […]

SXSW in Austin

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

Wow, what a great time! I don’t know where to begin: the city, the weather, the energy… but I guess since we came here for the music, I should start with the music. We have managed to see alot of bands, even though the first two nights we cut out early after tiring ourselves out […]

Arrival In Austin

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

Ahh, off the road again.  We arrived in Austin last night, half a day earlier than anticipated.  Now we are moved in to the hotel room that will be our home for the next 6 nights.  Austin is great so far, though I’ve had a bit of trouble navigating some of the freeway ramps that […]

Downtown Denver Day

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

Ahh, the cool mountain air of Colorado.  It really is a beautiful State, from what we’ve seen so far.  And we have been lucky enough to be able to spend the past two nights relaxing in Larkspur at Darryn’s place, just south of Denver.  Unfortunately, our gracious host was absent, working somewhere in the middle […]

Beers along the trip… part one of many

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

Howdy all  One of the things I love doing in a new land is to try some of the local brews.  Since I did all of the drinking, I will let Miranda write about the fantastic day we had and I will catch up on the list of brews I had.  On Wednesday night, when […]

A Winter Wonderland Wyoming

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

Yes, as Harry wrote, we did see two ve-e-ery large bald eagles on our drive through Montana. One of them was right beside the road, munching on roadkill, ahh, what beauty nature is to behold! Montana was beautiful, in it’s barren simplicity. At first it resembled the badlands of southern Alberta, then further south it […]

Montana, been there, done that…

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

I’m not sure what the motto of Montana is, but it should be “we got really big eagles, and Moose Drool is yummy”. Yesterday we darted through Alberta, talked our way across the border, and drove down to Great Falls. Our hotel, Sky’s Western Inn, looked like it needed a reno, though it had just […]
