texas through new mexico to arizona to utah and finally colorado

my gosh. finally the end of all the road trip pictures. i’m headed to colorado this weekend again to see this guy one more time before he comes back to houston, and then i’m headed to ITAY with my mama !!! i am seriously so so lucky, i have just the life i’ve always wanted. the pictures above are from a 10 day road trip. we drove through 5 states. explored 2 nation parks and 1 national “landmark”. stayed in one roach motel, a few chain hotels, some KOA’s / campsites in our tent. we hiked so so much. seriously all the hiking. floated in SLC salt lake. we made a point to see the stars every night. ate more than a few del taco burritos. oh duh, almost forgot, totaled our car in a tire blow out on I-10. (the crash seemed to happen in slow motion and i really thought i was about to die – but thanks to the rental car and insurance pay out it was almost a good thing) anyway. point is. super fun trip, and can’t wait for more camping this fall !!!

texas road trip : second half // hill country

2016 September 2
by dena

i was hoping to finish posting this solo-texas-road-trip before sharing pictures of the NOLA//MISSISSIPPI one and the ARIOZONA//UTAH//COLORAO one after that but what the heck – i’m going to okalhoma this weekend so. guess you’ll have to wait a few more days. basically all the trips.



carthage, tx : visited the texas country music hall of fame in north-east tx before heading to the hill country.


bastrop, tx: stopped for a latte and a photo-op





san antonio, tx : such a cool cool city. visited the old pearl + lone star brewery buildings and went to a country dance in the old pearl “stables” – i was the youngest by 45+ years HA.


middle of no where central texas river . i swam in more lakes in rivers during this trip than like EVER . 




snake farm (basically just so i could sing the song in my head) // luckenbach (also another excuse to sing the song) // fredericksburg (so i could eat the peaches) 

not pictures : more lakes and more rivers // went to a show at gruene hall // visited friends in austin // a boy i really liked waiting at home for me.

probably no events calendar until next monday night or tuesday . wish me luck camping in oklahoma this labor day !!!

texas road trip : lakes and camping and east texas

2016 August 13
by dena





camp creek, tx: middle school bff’s lake house north east of college station. spent the first few days journaling in the shade and floating in the lake.





bremond, tx : family farm house. had an alone day/ night. highlight was going to the walmart in marlin for my “outing” and then a $3 breakfast taco that you know i made stretch for 2 meals.

waco, tx: had an alone day exploring. the checker-outer at CVS recommended it and what the heck – i don’t know what tv is so obviously had no clue what to expect. ate lunch at taco bell. did internet things at a cool coffee shop // bar called dichotomy. but, not like THAT cool, don’t worry double trouble.

west, tx: relived a childhood memory of going to this stop n’ go kolache store AND went to one other weird place, but i’ll share on a separate post.




kennard, tx // davy crockett nation forest : met up with a boy i like and his cousins for some camping in davy crockett national forest (north east texas). did camping things like drink cheap beers and read while the boys mess with fire, swim in a lake, and go on night hikes. also explored the caddo mounds and cute little downtown nacogdoches. IMG_0384


broaddus, tx : visited aunt sandy on lake sam rayburn (a little more north east). fed the chickens, did crafts, make pizza dough.

this was basically the first half of my trip. i’ll do another one about my time in the hill country. BUT, i’m leaving tomorrow morning before sunrise for a arizona // colorado road trip so don’t make me do a calendar. (sorry all y’all who read and care about those …) but i will be back in 10 days and will do one then. okay. BYE.
