We are Crazy; We are Normal

I think sometimes people look at us like we are crazy. Like who leaves a wonderful life in search of adventure and the unknown? How can we feel comfortable not knowing where we are going to sleep the following month, much less the following night sometimes! “I don’t know how you do it,” is something…

Big Sur

Don and I met in college at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY. We were fortunate enough to have an AMAZING college experience, full of academic rigor, incredible memories, and excellent friends. One of our friends from college, Doug Laity has been sharing some great suggestions for hikes and travel routes around the west…

Hanging with the Winslows

It is so wild moving through life and later reconnecting with old friends. The years have passed quickly – working, growing a family and getting busy with life. It’s that crazy current that sweeps us all downstream. One of the great things about old friends is that they are familiar, and trust is typically already…

Yosemite Falls

Gorgeous views, huge granite formations, and during our visit, we were spoiled to have beautiful waterfalls! We spent our first day in the park just taking it easy, enjoying the short Yosemite Falls hike. The kids enjoyed going off-trail…

Bishop, CA

This quaint town has gorgeous views, friendly locals and an enjoyable downtown area. We were able to walk down from our hotel room for meals at Schat’s Bakery and then take our…

Windy Death Valley

Man, oh, man! I think what we will remember most about Death Valley is the wind! It was so powerful on the day we visited, that we thought Jadyn could have been blown away! A mother actually gave me a scolding look as she grabbed Jadyn’s arm when she heard her cry out. Jadyn was…

Bryce Canyon Hoodoos

I had been looking forward to this hike for 10 years! We lived in Salt Lake City for just one year, and I always regretted not having traveled to Bryce during our stay. Oh, well! It made me appreciate this day even more. We met our friends, the Halls for the Queens/Navajo Loop Trail. Six…

Zion National Park – Angel’s Landing

So, I divide people into two groups now – those who have hiked Angel’s Landing, and those who haven’t. 😉 Kidding, but I do divide people into those who know what the heck Angel’s Landing is, and those who’ve never heard of it. So for those who know, you will share my excitement – we…
