One of my favorite fall trips ever happened last year, when we took off and landed in Glasgow, Scotland, and drove northwest to the wild Isle of Skye, in search of sea glass. You can read about it here. After that breath of fresh air, we traveled south to Worcestershire in England, at Droitwich, specifically […]
In a world where you can be anything, being a mother shouldn’t change that. As mothers, we tend to focus on our children’s needs and often forget our own.

I shared a pack trip experience with 9 women in Wyoming one summer, and I knew I would be back. It’s a love affair I have with the horses, guides, camp and the most of all, the landscape. The lure of the Washakie Wilderness has bitten me. I can close my eyes and return to […]
