America the Beautiful

As many of you know, my husband and I purchased a new Airstream Mercedes-Benz RV about three months ago. So many people asked about our adventures, so I decided to fill you in! We are having a ball and it’s the best way to see our beautiful exquisite country. This is an entertaining column, so today I’ll represent four of the many places we’ve visited.

One of our first trips was to Yellowstone National Park and along the way, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Tetons, Mount Rushmore and more.

Close to home we went to Memphis, Tennessee, the home of Elvis and Beale Street and more! Nashville was on the list with the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, the Blake Shelton’s Ole Red bar and many more. We listened to an Elvis recording at Studio B on Music Row and stood where all of the country music greats recorded.

Santa Fe, Taos, Red River and Angel Fire, all in New Mexico, featured a part of our country that you have to drive through to appreciate.

Our last trip was to Key West and along the way Tampa, St. Petersburg, Miami and Naples, Florida. We loved the sunsets, beaches, Hemingway’s home, the Truman Little White House and of course dive bars and gardens!

“America the Beautiful” is my favorite song, and I urge you to see this country, its National Parks, rolling hills, mountains, farm land, forests, rivers and oceans. We have a lot to be thankful for in this country!
