Angel’s Landing – Unequivocally Angelic

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 [...]

Devil’s Garden – The Devil Would Be So Lucky

By |2019-08-20T11:20:03-07:00July 4th, 2019|Attractions, Experiences, Hikes, National Monument, Utah|

Devil’s Garden seems inaccurately named if you ask me.  When I think of the devil I think of fire, a dark, and ugly hell.  A place no one in their right mind wants to visit.  Devil’s Garden is the opposite of that concept.  In fact, it is so far from that concept that there [...]

Lower Calf Creek Falls – Truly Magical

By |2019-07-19T13:37:29-07:00June 27th, 2019|Attractions, Experiences, Feature, Hikes, National Monument, Utah|

Lower Calf Creek Falls is nothing short of magical. Imagine yourself driving through a national monument over 1 million acres large and seeing nothing but rolling slick rock as far as the eye can see and noticing down at the bottom of the canyon a line of greenery. What could that possibly be here in [...]

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 [...]
