Kerry and I were so blessed to be able to go on an Alaskan cruise in 2006 and then in 2008 we spent over a week in Yellowstone and the Tetons in Wyoming. When our boys were young and at home vacations usually consisted of Six Flags over Texas, Texas Ranger baseball games (we all love baseball!) and various other amusement parks, sports events, and zoos. We'd go camping on the Guadalupe River in Central Texas or Lake LBJ in the Hill Country region of Texas. (Texas is a big state with a lot of different regions). Living in West Texas always made trips to the mountains at Ruidoso, New Mexico convenient.
We were overwhelmed with God's handiwork in Alaska and Yellowstone. Both trips were incredibly special times for us to share together and just be a couple again. One of our great desires is that we not wait until we retire to travel. Too many people wait and then they never get to do these things.
So here's the pupose of this post:
Where have you been that you'd recommend our going in the next year or so? Is the area of the country you live in a place we might like to visit? Would you please give me some details about where to go and what to do so I can start planning another trip. We absolutely love nature. I can take a bazillon =) photographs of God's beauty on earth. (Thank God, literally, for digital photography. My film bill was outrageous.) Kerry loves history so we've really thought about a trip back East . Maybe Virginia or Pennsylvania. But you may suggest a place we've never even thought of.
So please, give me some input. I'd be most appreciative!
