Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

Albuquerque to Boulder in one (cold!) shot

Posted by on Mar 12, 2012 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Roswell NM, USA | Comments Off on Albuquerque to Boulder in one (cold!) shot

My stint ranch-sitting in New Mexico over, last week I rode the 500 (ish) miles from Albuquerque, NM to Boulder, CO in one day. Man! was it cold. I didn’t even stop to take any pictures I was so frozen, but believe me the views were s-p-e-c-t-a-c-u-l-a-r! Snow capped peaks, snow on the side of the road, snow everywhere! As much as I love the mountains, I began to dream anything over 8,000 feet because I knew I would be super-cold and it would take me at least another hour riding  to thaw out. I hope to continue riding on to Idaho this coming week. ~MAG Please follow and like...

Christmas Day

Posted by on Dec 25, 2011 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Roswell NM | Comments Off on Christmas Day

Well, I came to Roswell so I could ride my motorcycle year-round. Turns out they are having a record-breaking winter (this is our second snow storm) and this time we got over 12″ of snow. Probably not too remarkable to my friends in New England, but for this gal that’s trying to avoid winter, well, it didn;t quite work out that way. Nonetheless, it is gorgeous here and I wouldn’t trade my spot on this ranch for any other adventure (I might, however, if this snow keeps up…) Here are some wintry pics…At least it feels like Christmas! Have a Merry Holiday everyone!       Please follow and like...

Visiting Carlsbad Caverns (NM)

Posted by on Nov 25, 2011 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Roswell NM, USA | 1 comment

Yesterday I went with my New Mexico hosts to Carlsbad, NM. First, we took a walk along the Pecos River     Ah, Thanksgiving. Yes, I ate too much food.   but then I got to walk it off visiting Carlsbad Caverns. If you have never been there,  let me tell you it is awe-inspiring. Called the Eighth wonder of the World, the subterranean beauty will take your breath way (even if the 750′ elevator ride  or 1.2 mile hike into its depths does not). Enjoy the pictures!     By the way, there is no colored light in the Caverns: all the colors you see are the natural colors of the rocks.     Please follow and like...
