The Toadstool Trail. The Crown Jewel of Kanab. Or as I like to call it The Worst Trail Ever. Let me give you a quick rundown of the conversation on this hike: Silence. Silence. Silence. Is this it? Why is this even a trail? This shouldn't have a trail at all, it doesn't deserve a…

Hike To Easy Ruins On The Way To Halls Crossing On Lake Powell

I think this is officially my last post on our spring adventures and it's the one I'm most surprised I didn't do until this year: driving the Halls Crossing side of Highway 276 (still haven't taken the ferry, though) to see the ruins! I still haven't driven all the way dow to the marina there,…

We almost didn't go to Big Bend on our trip out to Utah from Florida in March. It's pretty far from everything and quite literally in the middle of nowhere. I knew I wanted to go to Guadalupe Mountains National Park since that was a lot more on the way. I mean, it's like 35…
