Hiking Angel’s Landing Zion National Park

Hiking Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park was highly recommended to us by locals as well as reviewers online.  When we arrived in Zion National Park, we were apprehensive about the amount of people, as per the usual with national parks.  However, we were excited to see the beautiful park and hike some trails!

This is definitely a strenuous trail.  At about 5 miles out and back, you are hiking around 1500 feet of elevation over 2.5 miles, which is pretty steep.  The first mile is on a paved sidewalk, although it is...

Alaska or BUST!

Alaska or BUST! As many of you know, we are making our way up to Alaska this summer. We have both always wanted to visit Alaska, and now is the perfect time!

Boondocking in Escalante Utah

  We haven’t shared every single boondocking campsite that we have stayed at on this trip, simply because some of them are really not worth sharing.  Those are the ones we typically only stay at for a night before moving to something better.  On our drive through from Capitol Reef National Park toward Bryce Canyon National Park, we stopped about halfway in a town called Escalante.  We stayed inside the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument on BLM land.  It was a great campsite for boondocking in Escalante Utah! Where Is This Boondocking Campsite in Escalante? There are actually several dispersed...
