Alright everyone I am exited to dive into another guide book. I have a shelf full books leading you this way and that down the trails of Utah. Whenever I get the chance to read another book and explore its trails I am overjoyed. The best part of this book is that it was written […]
My recent journey was yet another involving quite a permitting process. I’m sure many recognize the sandstone formation pictured above from its made famous appearance from many photographers. Heavy popularity was brought to this area after Windows 7 introduced a picture of this natural phenomenon as a desktop background in 2009. Hence my reference to […]
Every single year I completely surprise even myself with how many places I am lucky enough to visit. Seriously, some people are homebody’s and hardly leave the house except for work and errands. I am so glad that Thomas and I are not like that or else I wouldn’t have been to most of the places […]
I have poured over so much information surrounding cars over the past year. You may might think I’m in overload and sick of doing all this research, but it is quite the opposite. You see I grew up with my father working as a finance and insurance manager at a car dealership. Even though I’m […]
What I actually really love about Moab is all the short quick hikes you can do. Jewel Tibbets Arch is another great one and an awesome way for the dogs to stretch their legs. Jewel Tibbets, the arches namesake discovered this sandstone formation. Her son, Ray Tibbets, was a Moab businessman and Grand County Commissioner. He […]
You are literally about to become so impressed with New Hampshire. Autumn is the hardest part of the year for me living out west mainly because the foliage is just not as impressive as it is back east. With that being said these recommendations are applicable all year long to have an enjoyable time in the Mt. […]
Many of you have seen the beautiful turquoise waterfall pictures against the red sandstone like the picture below. I would happily write a guide to obtaining a permit, the hike down there, a packing list or hiking to the Colorado River confluence. The truth is that those guides have been done so many times and […]
We wanted to set our sights on Frary Peak, the highest point on Antelope Island. But we did not land where we hoped. Our start was a lot later than anticipated when we did this hike back in March. From having a crazy night at work the evening before sleep was far more necessary than […]
Overview Via Ferrata is Italian for “iron road.” The essence of a via ferrata climb is a steel cable running along the entire route and periodically fixed to the rock. Iron rungs fixated to the rock assist climbers who are harnessed to the cables. The cables, therefore, help limit any fall, should one occur. […]
The desert is not only known to be beautiful but during the summer months, its heat is nearly unbearable. With that being said hope is not lost for those wishing to visit Moab June through August. Though my biggest recommendation is to skip the deserts of Utah during the summer. But even I couldn’t heed my own […]
