From Fort Adams to Newport Beach, Rhode Island

Video 27 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

We spent the night at Point Judith State Park (Fishermans Memorial) only to find it rained all night, so no biking the next day. No problemo, we continued on to Newport Beach and checked out the mansions including the Breakers, Marble Mansion, Great Gatsby home and more. Finally, we enjoyed the scenic and impressive Fort Adams. Rhode Island gets its share of rain yet no wonder it truly has verdant views.

We’re BACK (laptop crash while on our trip) and our next episode comes from Hartford, Connecticut where we visit the home of Mark Twain. Starting is life with so little, Samuel Clemens was ever a creative, adventurous man who studied life, people and what made them tick. Better yet, despite no more than a 6th grade education, Mark had a zeal to learn and share his adventures through stories well told throughout the world.

What Really Happened at Little Big Horn Custers Last Stand ?

Video 11 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

The year was 1876, following years of broken treaties by the white man culminating with General Custer trying to establish a military fort upon the discovery of GOLD. Great news thought pioneer settlers 3 years after the PANIC DEPRESSION of 1873. Ditto for Custer, looking to regain his reputation after showing distinguished heroism during the Confederate War, only to have later been busted during a Court Marshall for taking his troop AWOL for an unauthorized trip so he could see his beloved wife. Ambitious to quickly regain his stature as a war hero leader, General Custer jumps in to battle with the Native Americans (aka Indians) before reinforcements arrived. But he didn’t figure the natives 2,000 fierce warriors were not about to forfeit their land granted by the two treaties signed by the United States government . And now we better understand the term “Indian Giver”

Video 10 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

As we left Yellowstone Park heading North-East, we spent the night at the Crazy Creek Campground. Continuing North to Billings, we climbed, climbed and climbed some more in our RV before reaching Beartooth Mountain Pass at a whopping 10,947 feet high! Best of all, our Siberian Husky Kaliki loved the opportunity to frolic in the snow – overlooking mountain sheep and an abundance of pristine lakes.

Grand Tetons, Yellowstone Falls, Old Faithful, Buffalo’s Up Close

Video 10 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

After wrapping up our tour of the Grand Tetons (North of Jackson Lake), we entered Southern Yellowstone for an awesome “spin around the Park.” Yellowstone Falls had dramatic views and of course Old Faithful Geyser is not to be missed, complete with an insightful Park Ranger talk. Best of all, in the Lamar Valley we spotted herds of thousands of Buffalo’s, and even had one walk up to us in our RV!

Around the Beautiful Greenbelt of Twin Falls

Video 6 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

Idaho Falls may not have the stunning 200+ waterfalls we found at Shoshone Falls, but they makes up for it with a very long waterfall where you can get up very close (and personal). Also, the Idaho Falls and Snake River are so close you can easily touch it. And if that isn’t enough, don’t miss out on the beautiful greenbelt where you can walk or bike adjacent to the river and falls for a 5+ mile loop! Ironically we learned that the original project was spearheaded by their local Rotary Club!

Video 2 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

As we head out of the Reno/Sparks area of Nevada, we soon come across Mustang … but we came in hopes to see wild horses (not the legendary Mustang Ranch). Of course, life happens while you’re making other plans and our trip is interrupted by a RV mishap when we pull off the road. But as the saying goes, bad decisions often make good stories… cTvFun,com
