It has been quiet in our home, we have been out of town. Moving our trailer from the summer mountains to the winter desert. It is a trek we make twice a year and usually occurs in the fall around Halloween. We travel with our trailer a distance of approx. 400 miles and do it over a 3 day period. It is not to difficult but we go over many mountain passes and travel through stretches of highway that can be very windy and gusty. Half way through the trip we stay in an area called the Alabama Hills, I love it there. It is at the base of Mt. Whitney, full of rocks and boulders and wonderful little roads that lead to no where. We spent 2 days there this year and I was very happy so was Penny and that is something! During the time there I spent many a moment walking and wandering just getting lost in the largeness of the place. I was allowing problems at home to become very large and it was important for me to spend some quality time with nature to realize the size and importance of myself in the grand scheme of things. The peace and quiet was good medicine for me.
