See The Meadows Turn Into Living Rainbows At Cedar Breaks Wildflower Festival In Utah

This summer we spent a lot of time in Kanab and would usually just decide what to do after we got our coffee and juice. One day we decided it was time we visit Cedar Breaks National Monument so off we went to this mini Bryce Canyon. Before going I knew the wildflower festival was…

See This Life-size Rock Shell On The Nautilus Hike In Utah

I don't remember what I was looking up at the time, some hike near Page, but then I stumbled on The Nautilus hike. What I do remember is the day that I found it I wanted to go immediately. We didn't but I wanted to. The first time we went was within a couple of…

Toadstool Trail In Kanab: The Worst Trail Ever

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,…

Visit Escalante Petrified Forest State Park And Hike The Sleeping Rainbow Trail

One of the last posts I have for our spring Escalante trip is about the Escalante Petrified Forest State Park and the Sleeping Rainbow Trail!

Hike The Golden Willis Creek Slot Canyon Trail In Cannonville, Utah

Ahh slot canyons. I love them and got to see another new one in the spring: Willis Creek slot canyon! I think I found this one in the fall of 2019 as an option for when my parents were visiting, but saved it for later, which happened to be this spring. We decided to spend…

Leprechaun Canyon Slot Canyon For Non-Climbers: The Only Gold Here Is The Canyon Walls

Way back in 2016 some people invited me to hike Leprechaun Canyon with them. I worked 3-11 then so I couldn't and I was bummed, but everyone made it sound so easy to find and do that we ended up going later that summer. Well, we didn't even think we were in the right spot.…

Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy: Hiking To The Moqui Caverns In Kanab

Just like the Belly of the Dragon, the Moqui Caverns were another thing I alwaysssss saw on Pinterest and just had to see. Once we decided to transfer to Wahweap and were just an hour from Kanab, I knew we had to stop. And we did on our first trip to Kanab. We actually went…

Burr Trail Utah

Burr Trail: All About Driving The Best Road In Southern Utah

I love the Burr Trail. It's no secret. It's the best scenic drive in Utah, if not the whole country. I still have a lot of scenic drives left to do, so that's not an official declaration yet. I always thought I should have made a Burr Trail guide years ago, but now I thought…
