On the road for the next two weekends as we make our annual pilgrimage to the Black Hills of South Dakota to visit Sarah’s folks. This time around we are also adding on a trip up to visit my brother and his fam in Bozeman, MT. Looking forward to fall in two places I genuinely love. Also looking forward to fall being in FULL effect in Salt Lake when we get back!

On another (quick) 4th of July weekend road trip to visit my brother and his family in Bozeman. This will be my third time up since November 2018 and it is a place I genuinely enjoy. Back next week!
We have returned home safely from Alaska! We took it slow (thanks in part to our amazing 1986 Vanagon, Poly, and simply enjoyed each other and the time we were able to spend together in one of the more incredible places on the planet. Now, in the spirit of simplicity, less talk, more pictures!
Out of town for the next week+ in Alaska. This is Sarah’s third Alaska summer trip, my second, and Ceci’s first. The plan is to fly into Anchorage and then let adventure happen while we drive around in a VW camper bus we’ve rented. I’ll be back with stories and pictures for the blog in a couple of weeks!
After our trip to the Wayne Wonderland last weekend, I’m just going to let the photo’s of Utah’s ridiculously awesome landscape speak for themselves. In spite of all of Utah’s human nonsense, this really is God’s Country…
Out of town this weekend. We are joining friends on an adventure in the Utah paradise around Capitol Reef National Park. Looking forward to taking my kiddo on the hunt for prehistoric art, weirdo rocks, unnaturally blue skies, and surreal Earthen uplifts. Until next Saturday!
Spending President’s Day weekend road tripping with my wife in Colorado. Beer will be had, vegan food will be eaten, vinyl will be purchased, and Bob Seger will be rocked out to in Denver. Until next week!
I spent last weekend hiking in the canyons around Moab with my wife, daughter, and our two bozo dogs (one of whom I had to rescue from a half-frozen pond after he tried an ill-advised rock jump). The MLK-weekend Moab trip has become a tradition in our family. It is one of the few times I can visit the Moab-area without getting anxiety from the influx of tourists. This year it was particularly quiet, which had us speculating that a lot of the winter visitors might have made other plans in the face of the government shutdown (in spite of the fact that efforts have been made to keep a handful of Utah’s national parks open). It was one of our better trips. Deserts remain deeply restorative and sacred. My daughter is old enough to hike on her own and she insisted that we get out as often as possible. We found some new hidden hiking gems, and had Corona Arch all to ourselves on our visit. Here are some pictures.
No new content this week as the wife, kiddo, dogs, and I take our annual MLK-weekend trip to Moab. I’ll seek out pictures and stories for future blog posts while we are down there.
