Miles driven: 56.0 Miles hiked: 7.5+ Last night was wicked hot in the van. It was about 100 degrees as I tried to sleep, drowning in a pool of sweat. I had the roof vent open to try to get some of the heat out, but it was almost just as hot outside so it … Continue reading Arches National Park, Utah (Part 3)

Miles driven: 49.1 Miles hiked: 5.0 Today was a short day, as I’m saving the last 7.2 miles of designated trail for tomorrow. I headed into the park around 7:30 this morning after camping out in town last night.

Miles driven: 68.7 Miles hiked: 3.8+ I took yesterday morning to get a few things done and spent the afternoon and part of the evening driving South to Arches National Park. I arrived around 5:30pm, which was just enough time to get to the visitor center before it closed. Because this part of the state … Continue reading Arches National Park, Utah (Part 1)

We began today by heading out to a local hike called the Adams Canyon Trail shortly after breakfast. We had a quick drive over to the town of Layton after getting directions to the trailhead, which is located in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. The hike started off pretty sandy and gradually progressed more into rock … Continue reading Hiking, Art, and Music

I woke up this morning undecided on the plan for today. The original plan was to just drive down to Grand Teton National Park after doing Yellowstone, but I really didn’t want to have to drive back into Yellowstone to get there, as the South exit for Yellowstone is the primary way to get to … Continue reading Northern Utah

We didn’t do anything yesterday and it was great. I finally got to do some reading and finished The Wild Truth, which is a follow-up to Into the Wild. Today was our last day in Yellowstone; mainly because I’m just bored of it and tired of having to spend 2+ hours just to get anywhere … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park (Part 5)

We took another easy morning today and decided to refresh ourselves with a real shower and then washed the bedding and towels. I know, living on the edge, right? By the time we were ready, it was 1pm and I decided we needed to take a lunch break from all our “hard work” before we … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park (Part 4)

Today was filled with a lot of resting. And rain. Can’t forget about the rain. We didn’t do much at all until after 11am when we finally headed back into the park. Yellowstone is huge, so it takes awhile to get anywhere in there. There was a long line to get in, so we used … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park (Part 3)

We started this morning with a walk around Gardiner, Montana, where we camped out last night. It’s a pretty small town just outside the North entrance to Yellowstone. There were a bunch of interesting shops, mostly catered to rafting and fly fishing, since the town is right on the river. It was after 11am by … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park (Part 2)

We started pretty slow today, taking the morning to catch up on some Interneting and then headed over to a Pilot Travel Plaza to enjoy a real shower. It was around 1pm by the time we actually headed out. Around 5pm, we decided to make a pit stop in a random town and do our … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park (Part 1)
