Just an hour out of Las Vegas is a State Park packed with climbing opportunities, Flintstone character and historical gold mines! I strongly suggest visiting Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada if you have an afternoon to kill while visiting or passing through Las Vegas! This small park had a ton of character and the more I research about it after our visit, the … Continue reading Valley of Fire State Park: Day 7
Three days in Zion National Park aren’t enough.. I loved every minute we spent in the park and will be counting down the days till I return. I got an amazing first time Zion experience and I am excited return in the near future – to give a few more of the sights and sounds more love and attention! On our third day in Zion … Continue reading Emerald Pools, Zion National Park: Day 6
Looking back at our trip – my only regret is that we didn’t spend an entire day in the Narrows! In Zion National Park, farthest tip of the canyon from the parks main entrance and it is also the most narrow (hence the name). The Virgin River runs through this narrow canyon which means you’re going to trek through water – which served as a … Continue reading The Narrows, Zion National Park: Day 5
Day 4 of our Road Trip kicked off our first day in Zion National Park! We were very lucky to know someone whose family had a BEAUTIFUL vacation home in St. George, Utah who offered us a place to stay for a our visit in Utah – an invitation we graciously accepted and continue to be grateful for! I strategically planned this day to be … Continue reading Angels Landing, Zion National Park: Day 4
Day three on our road trip was very very dry… But the landscape was amazing and the entire day felt like we were walking on a different planet! Hard to explain in words aside from “pretty awesome” so I’ll let the pictures and video do the talking! If you haven’t been to Death Valley or Furnace Creek – its totally worth a trip! And late … Continue reading Death Valley: Day 3
Another early morning in Mariposa, greeted a star-lit sky and the sound of cattle in the distance! My morning coffee was replaced by the chilling bite of the 40 degree weather as I took our dog for a walk around the cabin. I have zero shame in being a hotel snob – but I really love the warm feeling of staying in AirBnB’s. The cabin … Continue reading Yosemite: Day 2
Yosemite National Park is one of the great American treasures everyone needs to experience! Geographically, Yosemite Valley was made sense to kick-start our road trip and adventuring – and it set the bar very high for the rest of the week! Knowing that there is so much to do in the (freaking huge) park I wanted to make sure we got the most of our … Continue reading Yosemite: Day 1
I love to travel (shocker). This love came from my grandfather, who would would take me and my brother on road trips growing up. We would pack up our backpacks for overnights at his house or venture up to Prescott, work his food truck in East Phoenix or even trek cross country to meet family members we had never met before. He was a modern … Continue reading Hit the Road: Adventure Awaits!
