My husband and I are an almost-retired couple from Marin. Since August, 2012, we have had the opportunity to travel (via car) in the western US. We tend to stay somewhere several months, more or less so that we can get to know it and the natural beauty in and around it. I am an avid nature photographer, with a particular passion for taking close-up photographs of flowers. We're hikers and love taking the paths less traveled.
