Trip to Oregon

Last week I went on a trip with my special friend, Dannie to Salem, Oregon to see his family.

It was my first Stone visiting that part of the United States and I had a wonderful time there.

Dannie’s family was nice and we enjoyed spending time with them.

We had a rental car and we put over 975 miles on it in the five days we were there.

We went to Salem, Newport, Bend, Portland and Vancouver, Washington.

Here are some of the pictures I took. I can’t wait to visit Oregon again. And I can’t wait for the next adventure with Dannie.

Bucket List — Route 66

I’m on a road trip to see cousin as vs ger family for the holidays in Amarillo, Texas.

This is my first time to visit them and my first time in Amarillo.

So far I have had a GREAT time.

I didn’t have any plans to do anything besides spending time with them. They started listing things that we could do. Then they said we could go to 6th Street. I asked them what that was and they said it was Route 66.

My jaw hit the ground! I told them that was something on my Bucket List to do… drive on Route 66.

So we went there. I was so excited. I started taking pictures like a tourist. Here are some of the pictures I took.


never expected that this roadtrip would not only give me time to spend with my family during the holidays. But give me unexpected adventures.

I’m learning the overall theme of this roadtrip is… God works in mysterious ways and there was a reason that I took this roadtrip.

I am truly blessed that I am here right now. It was the place that I needed to be to get some things in order and get back on track.

Now you go through Saint Looey

Won’t you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route sixty six

Atlanta Roadtrip

I took a 4-day trip to Atlanta, Georgia and had a great time.

I went to Stone Mountain and climbed the 1-mile hike to the top

I walked around Downtown Atlanta.

Went to the Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks basketball game.

Got to see the Fall colors. I was surprised how much I missed them.

I saw two old friends, Rob and Gilda.

It was so nice to do things that I wanted to do. But next time, I would like to go with sl ekne special and share the adventures.

Bucket List — Walk Up Stone Mountain

Today was a great day. I checked off something from my Bucket List… the 1 mile walk up Stone Mountain in Georgia.

I knew when I decided to visit Atlanta that going to Stone Mountain what is one of the things I wanted to do. Since I started walking I thought it would be a great idea to walk up to the top of Stone Mountain when I was here. So this morning I made my way to Stone Mountain found the right trail to go up and I walked up the 1 miles up to the very top of Stone Mountain.

It wasn’t a hard climb there were a few steep areas and there were some wet patches on the granite but overall I made the claim without any effort.

Once I was on top of Stone Mountain the view was spectacular it was a brisk 50° up there but the wind made it feel like it was 35°. The first picture is of me on top of Stone Mountain and if you look in the very back you can see the skyline of Atlanta.

I spent a few minutes up there thinking that I would have never been able to make that hike two years ago. It is amazing how far I’ve come to try to get healthy and to try to do more things.

The trek down from the top was a lot easier than going up. I am so glad that I made it up to the top of Stone Mountain and was able to check something off my bucket list. After I was done and that walk I went to the main entrance of Stone Mountain and I walked around the park for a mile. I felt great it must’ve been the fresh Georgia air the bright sunny that day in the accomplishment that I did earlier that day.

So now I need to find what’s next on my bucket list so I can check it off.

Today was a great day.

Side note: the next time I take this adventure I want to do it with someone special so we can share the adventure together.

Viva Mexico

Today I wore the jersey I brought in Mexico. Not a huge soccer fan, but Mexico is still in the World Cup and i thought I would root for them to win.

León — Last Day

Friday was my last day in León visiting my sister. I really had a great time visiting her and the city.

We did much more than I expected. I can’t wait to make another trip to visit her.

Our mom and brother’s pictures are on the top shelve watching over us.

Cristo Del Rey on the mountain.

I really need to only be allowed one iced coffee a day. I had 2!

Hello San Antonio.

Well, today was my last full day visiting my sister in León, Guanajuato Mexico.

I have had a wonderful time visiting her and doing so many things together.

Here is what we did today:

Lunch at a food vendor along the road — Green Place

Driving and walked around León — and saw León’s version of Love Locks Bridge

They stopped at a gelato place for a light dessert.
