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.
