The Blonde Coyote’s Greatest Hits

Home Sweet Home at the Spiral Jetty and Great Salt Lake

Home Sweet Home at the Spiral Jetty and Great Salt Lake

Over the past ten years my dogs and I have crossed the country fourteen times, taken dozens of regional road trips, hiked thousands of miles in all 50 states and lived in ten states on both coasts. I’ve even fled the country a few times and logged some miles on foreign lands. Along the way I’ve written over 500 (!) blog posts and my Archives are getting pretty unruly.  If you’re new to the Blonde Coyote or just looking for a great read check out these Greatest Hits!

    Hey Mary,

    I just stumbled into your blog quite by accident. I was looking for information on Bisti, Angel Peak and also Ojito. I love Ojito and have spent many a winter day there… My favorite time to visit. Too damn hot in summer.

    I am a traveler too but I am leashed to the corporate world. I do get to see amazing places. I am an adult educator for a software company. I teach my clients how to get the most out of their very expensive purchases. This has led me to work in Moscow, Berlin, London, Paris and Hong Kong in the last 2 years in addition to many locations in the US. All great cities in their own respects.

    I live in Albuquerque and have a passion for the landscapes and vast terrain of our state. I love hiking with my little pack, two Labradors, Jakk and Jill. I enjoyed your writing and will spent many hours lost in your words and photos.

    Is there a chronological view so I can see your progression?

  8. Sabdy says:

    Mary…why are the pictures in the archives not available anymore? I love looking at your photos!

    • Yes, I know! It’s very frustrating. Some of the pix in some of my posts were erased by a glitch. I’ve been working on restoring them but it’s very time consuming. Gah technology! I’d so much rather be outside, taking new photos!😉

    I was bouncing around trying to find info on this Forrest fenn charactor and you pop up,and I’m like I know her…and I start remembering a story I read some time ago about lookin for a treasure somewhere, anyhow thought it was pretty neat so thought I’d say hi and you have an amazing job as I’m sure you know….

    Super fun blog. Thank you!

  11. Nicole Pyle says:

    I have an idea but I am a single mom in Texas and can’t get to search.

    • Yes traveling is great. I use to move every 6 months or more. I have traveled to different countries as well. I am an animal rescuer and my 6 year old is wonderful with animals as well. He has school and so that has stopped my traveling

    Hi Mary,

    I recently read (and really enjoyed) your article about the 10 best national and state parks in NM. You have a great choice in there. I’m a native New Mexican, so I know! I just have one critique, and it is the National Park Service employee in me that couldn’t just let it pass. The words National Park, National Monument, State Park, etc., should always be capitalized. They are part of the proper name of the parks and monuments.
    I do really enjoy your blog though and will continue to read it!

    I am so envious of you lol have a great time this summer. I will try to remember your blog Love he teardrop. I am curious, is the interior photo side to side or front to back. Can you set up comfortably inside while working on the computer? Just seemed to me there is more room than I can picture. Thanks and safe happy travels.

  14. cmptime says:

    Very inspiring travel log. Growing up in NM I have several great memories of camping from Carlsbad to Fenton lake and everywhere in between. We converted from tent to teardrop two years ago and have never looked back. We are busy wearing out Arizona these days. Love your positive attitude.

    Hey, blonde coyote!
    When are you going to write a book? Love your blog and am eager to hear longer stories.

  16. Ambery Wolf says:

    I also travelled all over the USA/Canada for about 7 years. Sold jewelery and minerals, etc enroute. Loved it and miss it still. Rescued some dogs enroute, then settled down in NM in a place called Bent, NM(by Mescalero/Ruidoso area) for awhile to rescue more animals primarily, (was the reason I stopped the travels full time.) Now in Washington, which I love exploring with my 2 dogs. Really enjoy your blog and pictures, we are kindred spirits. I am also a blonde adventuress! Would be cool if I ever ran into you out exploring, You are a cool brave adventurous lady also, as people have described me too. I used to think there were not many l;adies travelling alone, but discovered there were some here and there that I met. Namaste ,Ambery Wolf

    Hi BlondeCoyote, can’t wait to read thru your blog and enjoy your pictures. I wanted to ask who built your teardrop trailer, does he still make them? I love the design. Got the name of your blog from tinyhouse email & doityourselfRV sites.

    What website do you recommend to follow seismic activity along the western coast of the united states? It’s been eerily quiet on the national site and I’m concerned they are not sharing their data – for whatever reason.

  20. Axel says:

    i think i know where to start the quest for forrest fenn’s treasure hunt. I’m trying to solve the other parts of the puzzle but i’m not really aware of the geography of the region. All comments i heard start the quest in the wrong place. My english is not to good to understand the tricky parts of the poem. But i’m working on it!:)

    Hi Great Adventurers:
    Am I crazy to head to Yellowstone this year during the last week in June with my self-contained Roadtrek and not-so-contained 9-year-old Jack Russell terrier, Edie? 100-year celebration may be just lines and crowds. Where would you camp for short day hikes and great off-leash dog-break campsites with clear night skies? I like Old Faithful but hate crowds! Any ideas how to do this…from Alaska and don’t know the surrounding areas.

    I agree the T Rex track at Tuba City is out of the time sequence, but it is big. What conclusion did you reach about what it is?
