9/5-9/17/2022 – Glacier National Park, MT

We have wanted to visit Glacier NP for years. In 2017, we came close to adding it to our Tetons/Yellowstone adventure but we just couldn’t make the timing work. I am glad we didn’t because we would have sorely needed more time to explore this beautiful park! Glacier NP has the largest concentration of Grizzlies … Read more

6/4 – 6/30/2022 – Capital Reef National Park, Southern Utah and Western Colorado.

This is probably my biggest stretch of not blogging outside of our trips home. Partially because it felt like we were in another holding pattern. We have been having issues with our 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500, that only has about 30,000 miles on it. It has been in the shop 5 times in the last … Read more

5/21-6/3/2022 – Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park

Zion National Park exceeded all our expectations. We hiked over 20 miles for a total of about 4000 feet of elevation change. So, by the end of our week there our legs were trashed and our faces hurt from smiling! Zion is definitely a hiking paradise, and considering it’s 1/5 the size of Yosemite and … Read more

5/10-5/20/2022 – Grand Canyon, Williams & Page Arizona

In my last post, I was feeling a little bummed about not being able to hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon on this trip. While I still one day want to come back and do it, we did find other alternatives to explore and enjoy the park. Let’s get into it! Our next … Read more

Things are finally starting to pick up again! The struggles we’ve faced lately reminds me to be all that much more tremendously grateful for this trip! Sometimes the contrast of the hard times are great reminders to be on the lookout for your blessings. Touring America the Beautiful with my wonderful husband has been one … Read more

Goodness! So sorry for the delay in my posts. I have been on a theme here lately that has continued, I think you will understand greatly after reading what the last two weeks have brought. After a week back in Albuquerque, we were distraught to get the news that Ed’s sister had been hospitalized and … Read more

2/18-4/12/2022 – Family Visits and Albuquerque

Well, we have been on a very long hiatus from the blog as we flew back east to visit our kids and extended families in West Virginia and North Carolina. It was a roller coaster of a trip home – highs and lows, twists and turns. So, let’s get into it, shall we? Our trip … Read more
