I recently received the Adventurous Blogger Award from http://reenareigns.wordpress.com/2012/09/02/adventurous-blogger-award/ a traveler, and an adventurous one.  It’s exciting.  I want to thank her for the award!  I love to travel whether it is a day hike or a long trip.

The award is given by bloggers to bloggers and passed on to continue.   I appreciate reenareigns.wordpress.com nominating me for the award.

Part of the award process is to tell you some things about myself and to nominate twelve other bloggers.  It’s hard for me to nominate just twelve, because there are so many intriguing travel blogs.

I understand if a nominated blogger doesn’t want to participate.  It’s okay.  I still enjoy your blog and please keep adding lots of the pictures.

Questions & Answers:

In which country or region would you like your next adventure to be?

Midwest:  Apostle Islands (Wisconsin) or the Ozarks (Missouri) or Tettegouche (Minnesota)

New England: Smuggler’s Notch (Vermont)

Rockies: Jewel Basin Hiking Area (Montana)

West: Valley of Fire (Nevada)

If I’m dreaming big: Scottish Highlands for hiking and salmon fishing; New Zealand to Australia to Singapore; or photo safari in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Where would you recommend for an adventurous time?  

Portaging in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota, backpacking in Shawnee National Forest, renting a lighthouse on Lake Michigan, boating or canoeing the Mississippi River–it’s a long river, whitewater rafting in Wisconsin or staying on a ranch in the Great Plains.

Most interesting culture: 

The next culture I’m fortunate to learn about.  Every culture I learn about is interesting.  American culture is very diverse and offers me the opportunity to learn about so many within just one country.

Favourite activity:  Traveling and mixing arts with outdoors while meeting locals and fellow travelers.
Most dangerous risk taken:   I’ve climbed in non-designated areas or accidentally hiked into bear country.  I try to travel safely and check first now.

Favourite quotation: Live in the moments that matter.  

“I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”

Happiness is: Is found in small and large ways everyday.  A great cup of coffee.
