Entertaining myself at the Wyoming Tourism Office near the junction of Interstates 25 and 80. They have a bit of a museum there and a modern large building powered by solar energy. If you want free maps and brochures this is a quick stop.

Ames Monument

You’ve probably never seen this 60-foot tall monument in Wyoming off of Interstate 80. It was built by two brothers who were Union Pacific Railroad financiers during the building of the First Transcontinental Railroad (completed in 1869). The monument was originally built next to where the railroad tracks were to be located. The monument was built and the planned tracks were moved south. So today it’s located between Interstate 80 and the railroad tracks…out of site from both. I read about it “Nothing Like it in the World” by Stephen Ambrose. Had to see the monument built where few go out of their way to see it.

Dragonfly

Lots of photographs of nothing were taken by me while I tried to get one frame of a dragonfly in flight. Just wanted one and that was all I had. I’ll share it with you. This dragon fly was living high in the Colorado Rockies in Rocky Mountain National Park. Aug. 5, 2013

On the road again, finally.

I am going to full-time it on the road mostly in my RV named “Soul-La” so my blog is “Soul-La and Me.” I’ve sold my townhouse in Denver and now have plans to have some new adventures. I’m traveling with my imaginary boyfriend named “Buck” who is the best companion ever and my sidekick “Teddy” who is always willing to pose for a photo. More on them later. Here’s the sunset from Cherry Creek State Park where I spent several nights as I was packing to leave town.Image

Besh-Ba-Gowah Pueblo, Globe, AZ

The Besh-Ba-Gowah Archeological Park and the Salado Ruins is in Globe, Arizona. I’ve visited many ancient ruins in the Southwest and have found it interesting to learn that archaeologists have been able to trace the movements of ancient people by studying the pottery that they have left behind. Different materials and different designs distinguish different cultures and found pottery can help identify trading routes.
