Playful St Elmo Colorado Chipmunks! #shorts

During my visit to ghost town, St. Elmo, Colorado back in 2013, I happened upon a lumber/woodpile. There were so many chipmunks running around, over under and through it that I felt compelled to film them. So glad I did. How adorable are these little critters?!? Am I right??? It is well-documented that the chipmunksContinue reading “Playful St Elmo Colorado Chipmunks! #shorts”

Sounds of a Colorado Creek

I visited friends who lived in Nathrop, Colorado, back in August 2013. This was, of course, MANY years before my YouTube channel. Ferg had driven us up to St. Elmo, a ghost town. That drive was harrowing! Imagine a spiral mountain dirt road, and yes, that road was a 2-way roadway! No guardrails, even thoughContinue reading “Sounds of a Colorado Creek”

Last Look: 2006 Dodge Magnum with Interior Pics!

This is one last look at my 2006 Dodge Magnum Sport Wagon. I also show parts of the interior. After I filmed it, I closed its doors for the last time, climbed into my 2011 Toyota Highlander and drove away. Although I still miss my car, it was no longer affordable. And it would haveContinue reading “Last Look: 2006 Dodge Magnum with Interior Pics!”
