Our Outdoor Adventures

Not everything is big cities and tourist destinations. We love the outdoor adventures that allow us to explore so many of the wild places. You might find us camping in the desert or backpacking in the forests or skiing some fresh powder. Hopefully we can share the outdoors with you.

A Look Back at 2017

A Look Back at 2017

This past year has indeed been a roller coaster. As I reflect on the year that has been I must pour out my heart in gratitude to the Almighty for the many blessings and great prosperity that we have experienced. As the chapter turns over to a new year I reflect on...

A Much Needed Adventure that Tore the Heartstrings

A Much Needed Adventure that Tore the Heartstrings

I haven't been able to get into the out of doors since Memorial Day weekend. It has really drug me down to be cooped up inside. Since going back to school, I have been really busy as I crammed a full-time school schedule into 7.5 weeks this summer. It has been a blast...

Spring Break 2017

With a week off of school and both of us having flexible schedules currently it was due time for some adventure. It has been since our Northwest trip last summer that we have been on an extended road trip. We were in desperate need of some time wandering. We planned...

A Desert Quick Trip in Joshua Tree

Whenever I head to the desert I am amazed. I am amazed at the fight for life, the beauty to behold, the tranquility, and certainly the heat. As we headed out to Southern California we decided to make a couple of stops that we have never made before. We've certainly...

Winter makes everything appear a little differently. I really enjoy getting up into the Wahsatch this time of year as the scenery looks vastly different than it does in the spring summer and fall. It's a great opportunity to go and feel the peace and serenity that is...

A Day of Skiing the Uintah Mountains

A Day of Skiing the Uintah Mountains

Only a few small clouds dotted the sky and the landscape was covered in white as I descended into a see of powdery fluff. Still learning to ski the soft stuff, I enjoyed every turn nonetheless. Skiing off of a peak that rises up nearly 11,000 feet in the Uintah...

Visiting Multnomah Falls

What's a trip to Portland and the Columbia Gorge with Multnomah Falls? These falls aren't the largest or widest, but they certainly are iconic. The view from the highway is good, but it is worth fighting the crowds to see it from the base and the bridge. If you're...
