Talimena Scenic Drive

This was a beautiful trip. I did not make this video. But we did drive this road two weeks ago. It was beautiful.  I can't wait to go back again.  This is Rich Mountain in Arkansas and Winding Stair Mountain in Oklahoma.  The tops of these mountains are about 2500 feet.  The pine trees are fantastic and the leaves changing color of the other trees are too.  This road is 54 miles through the tops of these mountains.  Highway 1 in Oklahoma and Highway 88 in Arkansas.  From Mena, Arkansas to Talihena, Oklahoma.  Well worth the trip.

Trips Down Memory Lane

They threw a party for us before we went
on our cruise to Alaska in 2005.  I haz my
cake and I eat it too!  Alaska is much colder
than Hawaii so this attire did not make it
on the ship!  No, I did not see Russia and 
not even Governor Palin.  

Here we are in all our formal attire.  They did 
feed us like kings.  Oh my, the lobster tail was 
delicious!  If you ever get the chance, go on a cruise.
The Princess cruise to Alaska was the best trip ever.

This is my family on the most exciting trip we ever took.
This is the Arkansas River in Colorado.  It was similar to
riding a roller coaster, only better.  I laughed and laughed.

Here the family is in a fantastic cave, also in Colorado.
Colorado is the best place to visit.  I am thankful that my
grown kids are still happy to go on trips with us.  We are
planning a trip to Yellowstone next year with them.
