20 Best Hikes In Grand Teton National Park Under 10 Miles

I didn’t actually take as many pictures in the Tetons as I thought.  I put off going through them because I thought I had sooooo many.  I didn’t.  Maybe I was just lazy.  It happens.  Anyways, I want to share a few of my photos from the Tetons with you all in one post.  I…

A Perfect Teton Day: Hiking Around Jackson Lake

There are affiliate links in here. At the end of July, we went on a road trip up to the Tetons and Yellowstone.  Day one was spent at Jenny Lake and hiking to Hidden Falls, Jackson Lake was day two, followed by a day and a half in Yellowstone.  This was my first time in…

My Favorite National Park Hikes

There are affiliate links in here. I like to think I've done my fair share of National Park exploring over the last year.  Some parks I did hiking, others I just had time to drive through.  Today, though, I'm sharing my favorite hikes in National Parks around the US.  I would just like to add this…

Return to Rocky Mountain National Park

I went back to Rocky Mountain National Park!  And this time I knew what to expect.  It was the end of November, and we were on our way back to Utah, then Wyoming for the winter.  The Rockies were our last exciting stop before starting work again.  We set off from Fort Collins with mountains…

The Other Side of Zion: Kolob Terrace Road

On our way to vegas we had a couple extra days before we really needed to be there.  We decided to explore Zion a bit.  This was my third time there, but I still haven't done Angels Landing or The Narrows.  Our plan was to do at least one of those.  We got there, mid…

Hiking To Hickman Bridge In Capitol Reef National Park

After driving through Capitol Reef a couple times and exploring the south end a little bit, it was time for a proper visit to the scenic road in the north.  There is the highway that passes through the park and the 10-mile (one way) scenic drive near the visitors center taking you further into the…

Bryce Canyon, Because Why Not?

Last July I went to Bryce Canyon for the first time.  This June I went back and it was totally different.  This time is was nice and warm and sunny.  This trip was a bit more spontaneous, but being only 5ish hours away this summer, I figured, why not? This time we stopped at a…

Lower Muley Twist Adventures In Capitol Reef

It was my birthday and I wanted to go somewhere.  After rounding up some new friends, we set off for Capitol Reef with, well, no plan.  After following Burr Trail to the end of the paved section, we went left to get to Capitol Reef.  The first part of it is really pretty, but instead…

Unexpected Snow in Rocky Mountain National Park

I get how ridiculous that sounds.  We didn't expect snow in the Rockies?  Well, I guess we sort of did, but not that much.  The roads were clear, which was or main concern as Meredith isn't really made for that.  I think this is where I introduce Meredith, my Smart car.  I love her, but…
