Bryce Canyon National Park

It’s been over half a year since we trekked around this beautiful place and it’s time to get it blogged. Since then, we’ve been married, visited Rocky Mountain National Park, been to Las Vegas together, I’ve found a new love for archery. And so much more.View full post »

Black Hills: Osprey Trail

We happily took advantage of the 50 degree days we were having in late October to explore around Lake Pactola. There’s something about Lake Pactola in the Black Hills that is so magical. We hiked Osprey Trail for the first time. An easy, flat trail that led us around a couple of loops toward the back of the lake – a view that can’t be seen from the highway that flies over the lake. At the end of the trail, the shoreline gently recedes into the water, making it a perfect,View full post »

Utah: Monument Valley

Our first stop on our second Arizona vacation for 2015, was Monument Valley, Utah. About 4.5 hours from Phoenix, we were up bright and early and on the road to make it to the park by mid-morning. We made a few stops along the way and made a little dog friend, who desperately wanted to come with us. I was sad leaving him. The Monument Valley formations are so… weird.

Black Hills: Custer State Park

Drove through Custer State Park last summer and met some funny, furry burros. I took as many photos as I could as we inched past. Because burros.View full post »

Black Hills: Rockerville

Also, as I lay there thinking of my vision, I could see it all again and feel the meaning with a part of me like a strange power glowing in my body; but when the part of me that talks would try to make words for the meaning, it would be like fog and get away from me. –Black ElkView full post »
