Utah Road Trip: 3 Days 7 Different Ways

This is going to be a whopper of a post and the first in my little series of shorter Utah itineraries broken down into specific areas. The three days will be packed full of hikes but I made the areas small so you'll be able to do as much as possible in that time. First…

Hike To Three Awesome Waterfalls On The Log Hollow Falls Trail In Brevard, North Carolina

One of my favorite waterfall hikes in North Carolina was the Log Hollow Falls hike. But, in what seemed to be classic North Carolina trail marking, we ended up following the wrong trail for like, a mile before turning around and trying the other option. I didn't really know what to expect from this hike…

Moore Cove Falls: An Easy Waterfall Hike In Brevard, North Carolina

After a while, not on the trip but after, the waterfalls and the trails all blur together a little bit but the Moore Cove Falls trail is one I distinctly remember, even though it was firmly in the middle of all the waterfalls we saw. Towards the end of our time in Brevard we finally…

Las Vegas Bucket List: 110+ Amazing Ways To Eat, Stay, And Play

One place I have very little desire to return to is Las Vegas. BUT after making this list, I wouldn't mind going back! There are so many cool and weird things to do in and near Vegas that I had no idea existed. Well, turns out I have my own little Las Vegas bucket list…

Hike To The 50-Foot Tall Cove Creek Falls In Brevard, North Carolina

I love North Carolina. But one thing I don't like about it is how confusing and poorly marked some of the hiking trails are and the Cove Creek Falls trail was one of those. The trailhead was easy enough to find but then we hit the trail. We were already 1/1 for following the wrong…

Enjoy The Hike To Roaring Fork Falls Between Boone And Asheville, North Carolina

Once I found the Roaring Fork Falls trail, it was stuck in my head and I was determined to see it. I really don't know why, it wasn't one of the most amazing waterfalls ever, but I just really wanted to go. We planned to do it the same day at Grassy Creek Falls and…

Hike To Hebron Falls On The Boone Fork Trail

While this is my second to last post on our time in Boone, this was actually the first thing we did there: hike to Hebron Falls on the Boone Fork Trail in Julian Price Memorial Park! This is about 20 minutes from Boone down the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is the trail you take just…

12 Awesome Outdoorsy Things To Do In Blanding, Utah (And Nearby!)

Here's something I never thought I would say: I actually like Blanding, Utah. It is far from my favorite place but after spending more time there last spring, it's become an endearing little place to me. While the town itself isn't brimming with things to do (there are a few on this list) the whole…

Hike Crabtree Falls Trail: One Of The Best Waterfalls On The Blue Ridge Parkway

Once I saw the Crabtree Falls hike I knew we had to do it. I had a busy day planned for us with Grassy Creek Falls, Crabtree Falls and one more nearby, but we only made it to the first two and this one was so much better! Don't get me wrong, Grassy Creek Falls…

Hike The Linville Falls Trail In The Fall For Out Of This World Color

Linville Falls. The falls I was most looking forward to on our October trip and they let me down. I kept seeing this AMAZING waterfall on every North Carolina waterfall or Boone waterfall list and I just had to see it. Falls cascading into a gorge surrounded by trees flaming orange and yellow. How could…

Hike Down, Down, Down To The Double Tiered Grassy Creek Falls In Little Switzerland, North Carolina

Ahh, waterfalls. I hope you like them because there are a lot of them coming your way here and first up is Grassy Creek Falls in Little Switzerland! Is this the best waterfall in North Carolina? No. Is it the most impressive? No. But it was still and enjoyable waterfall to see. Grassy Creek Falls…

Enjoy One Of The Best Blue Ridge Parkway Views On The Rough Ridge Trail In North Carolina

While we were in North Carolina almost every hike we did was to a waterfall. This wasn't totally on purpose but I did like it a lot. Well, today I'm sharing our one non-waterfall hike: the Rough Ridge trail! This is a nice moderate hike to one of the best views on the Blue Ridge…

How To Spend One Day In New River Gorge National Park

New River Gorge National Park is the newest national park and you can find it pretty much in the middle of West Virginia and we got to visit not too long before the change. If it isn't already on your national park bucket list, it should be because it's pretty cool! We had two whole…
