By |2019-08-30T16:06:20-07:00August 30th, 2019|Attractions, Experiences, Hikes, Mountains, National Park, Utah|

Angel’s Landing is just that.  The beauty of this summit is so angelic it is actually fit for an Angel to land.  The hike is beyond rewarding and the views are endless.  The name actually came from some people passing through who commented “Only an angel could land on top of that.”  That was [...]

Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument is truly a hidden gem that isn’t really hidden at all. In fact, this entire area takes up a whopping 1,003,863 acres. Before Trump reduced it in late 2017 the national monument encompassed 1,880,461 acres. This entire area is immensely large and beyond beautiful. It is filled with [...]

By |2019-03-05T12:25:15-07:00March 5th, 2019|Arizona, Attractions, Experiences, Feature, Hikes, Mountains, Spring, Summer|

You can’t help but to fall in love with Havasupai.  You see all the pictures of the crystal clear, turquoise waters and drift off in to la la land wishing you were there.  You see beautiful women standing under the water falls and people in the water with a look on their faces of [...]

Race You To The Top – Cathedral Rock Trail

By |2019-01-25T15:50:38-07:00November 22nd, 2018|Arizona, Attractions, Hikes, Mountains|

Cathedral rock is undoubtedly a gorgeous hike that is highly trafficked.  As I was waiting to climb up the rocky area that is a one way I found myself wondering “Don’t these people have jobs?”.  Not everyone can be like me, just traveling the country and having the luxury to go try a new [...]

Johns Lake Trail – One of the Firsts

By |2019-02-08T19:40:37-07:00May 23rd, 2018|Attractions, Hikes, Montana, Mountains, National Park|

Johns Lake trail is one of the most exciting hikes in Glacier National Park.  I say this in retrospect.  Glacier National Park gets plummeted with snow every winter.  So much so that the park slowly opens up as the plows can remove the snow and make the Going to the Sun Road safe.  The [...]

Zion….Nothing Short of Amazing

By |2019-01-21T15:27:49-07:00May 6th, 2018|Attractions, Experiences, Hikes, Mountains, National Park, Utah|

Nothing short of amazing sprinkled with annoying, confusing and somehow ending with pure joy. We wake up late, but hey, we are on our own schedule.  Getting ready, packing, charging everything while the generator is running and of course breakfast. Once these life necessities have unraveled we are ready to hit [...]

Bryce Canyon…HooDoo…You Do….Or, You Must

By |2019-01-21T15:29:59-07:00April 24th, 2018|Attractions, Feature, Hikes, Mountains, National Park, Utah|

Like nothing you have ever seen before, Bryce Canyon will leave you in awe while your jaw involuntarily just drops without notice.  The colors and structures (which we later learned are called HooDoo's, pronounced "WhooooDooooo" in a spooky, ghostlike voice) are breathtaking.  It is beyond amazing what Mother Nature has created for our viewing [...]

To Get Stuck In Kolob Reservoir… Or To Not Get Stuck?!?

By |2018-06-09T16:10:18-07:00April 21st, 2018|Boondocking, Experiences, Mountains, Utah|

Go to Kolob Reservoir they said.  It will be fun they said.  If driving straight up a mountain and almost overheating several times is fun, then OK.  If getting stuck in the middle of nowhere with no service is fun, then yes, it is fun. The side story to this was right before leaving [...]

Death Valley National Park – It’s Worth It

By |2019-03-27T15:19:30-07:00April 18th, 2018|Attractions, California, Experiences, Hikes, Mountains, National Park|

Death Valley National Park sure could live up to its name if you don’t visit it the right time of the year, but let me tell you, it would be worth it anyways.  This time of the year, basically winter or early spring is the perfect time to visit this wonder.  Yes, it sounds [...]
