Kanab Dinosaur Tracks: A Pretty OK Hike In Kanab, Utah

I've wanted to hike to the Kanab dinosaur tracks since I found out about them last year. It's a short hike but we just never stopped for it. When my parents came to visit, I figured we'd try and squeeze it in, and we did! And boy was it something. I had absolutely no idea…

Bombay Beach: A Toxic Wasteland And Unique Art Community

One of the places I knew I wanted to go on the little road trip with my parents was Bombay Beach on the Salton Sea. I didn't know a whole lot about it and what I thought was wrong. I thought it was an abandoned town, basically, and it sort of is but also isn't.…

Crystal Forest Loop Vs. Jasper Forest At Petrified Forest National Park

Hike The Blue Mesa Trail At Petrified Forest National Park

I love Petrified Forest National Park. I thought I would and I was not wrong. This is a park that people always say is boring, not worth it, or just to drive through in a couple hours. But it's worth more than that. I will admit, it may not be as mind blowing as somewhere…

Cool Off And Enjoy The View On The Hanging Garden Trail In Page, Arizona

Up to now, I've been in Page, Arizona for a total of 13 months and until October 2021, I did like, nothing. It's almost embarrassing how little I knew about things to do in Page, for real. My mission for this winter is to do literally all the things in Page. All. Of. Them. Well,…

Okefenokee Swamp: A Spooky Wildlife Haven In Southeast Georgia

This winter while we were still in Wisconsin I read a really awful book set in the Okefenokee Swamp. I didn't even finish it. I knew about the swamp before that but really wanted to visit after that, more than before. Just before heading to Tallahassee to meet my parents, we made a day trip…

Lovers Key: A Shelling And White Sand Paradise In South Florida

Delnor-Wiggins Pass Shelling: A Pretty OK Shelling Day In Florida

Back in January of 2020 when I visited south Florida, I really wanted to visit Delnor-Wiggins Pass to go shelling but didn't make it that trip so when I was planning this trip with my parents, I knew we had to go. I had pretty high expectations for no real reason and was a little…
