Roy Chatters Newspaper and Printing Museum

August 25th ~ Palouse, Washington

Roy M. Chatters Newspaper & Printing Museum

*When we walked the small town the day before, we had noticed the small newspaper printing museum. Posted hours were only open on Saturday from 10-2. Since we had a short drive to our next stopover, we were not in any hurry to break camp.

We decided to get all packed and hooked up, ready to pull out and then walked the two short blocks from our site. The museum was open as we approached.  Continue reading

Mesa Verde National Park

I can’t believe that an entire month has transpired since we returned home from our RV road trip through Colorado on June 10th, and somehow I lost my writing mojo along the way.

For someone who LOVES to travel, takes a ton of photographs, writes for a hobby and then truly enjoys sharing our adventures, this was so out of character for me. But, sometimes life gets in the way, other things become a priority, and before you know it, thirty days have come and gone.
