What’s your favorite vacation destination(s)?
Anywhere hot and sunny! So far, my favorite place is Navarre, FL a few miles east from Pensacola. The sand is white and soft, and it’s not crowded.
What is your favorite historical site, castle, museum, etc.?
I loved going to Garret Mountain Park in NJ when I was little. There was this old building there that looked like the witches’ castle from the Wizard of Oz.
I also always enjoy the Museum of the Rockies
What is your favorite Austin Adventures trip?
I haven’t been on an Austin Adventure trip yet, but if I were to decide, it would probably be any of the trips that have to do with Yellowstone Park. I’ve been several times on my own and have always been amazed every time I go. But I’d bet I’d say every trip would be my favorite after going on one.
What are your favorite outdoor activities/hobbies?
At home, I enjoy relaxing outside or walking my dog. I also enjoy gardening and planting flowers. I love going to the Beartooth’s and just exploring at any of the numerous pull outs.
Favorite Bike ride?
All the trails in River Front Park.
I have so many….Currently, Thor – Ragnarok. It was really good if you like those kinds of movies and it was hilarious.
When did you first catch the travel bug?
My parents were always taking my sister and I on “day” trips to areas we could get back home in a day. Beartooth’s, Pictograph caves, Yellowtail dam, etc. I always looked forward to when we would go on a Saturday adventure.
