R. I. P.

If you don’t live for something,
you’ll die for nothing.
The love of my life, Mike, passed away yesterday afternoon. 
This travel blog will be on hiatus for a while.
Here in Glacier National Park with his son Adam.
You will be missed my sweetness!
I love you

to comfort your ignorance.

Amazing what research one does when there is a storm brewing outside.  We’ve had more than 7.5 inches of rain in the last 18 hours thanks to Tropical Storm Franklin.

In July 2009, Cozumel was declared The Island of Peace by the International Committee for the Banner of Peace, a non-governmental organization affiliated with the UN (and UNESCO) because it has no record of warlike or military conflict since the ancient Maya. A first such honor given to an island.  Through this award, Cozumel joins the ranks of recipients like famed Dalai Lama.

Icebergs to Caribbean Waters

When we try to pick out anything by itself,
we find it hitched to everything else
in the Universe.

Mike and Adam biked to the top of Going-to-the-Sun road.  Great fun on way back down.
While in the North West USA, we visited Glacier National Park before heading back to Mexico.
