Scenic Drive : Cathedral Valley and The Temple of the Sun/Moon

Choosing to do this long drive ended up being a wonderful idea because my kids SLEPT. So, for families who have toddlers/kids who still need that mid-afternoon nap I absolutely recommend doing this. Do a hike or two in the morning and then instead of trying to get them to sleep in a tent or dealing with grumpy kids, go on a long hike and have them sleep in the car! (If your kids can sleep in the car that is, not everyone is lucky.) The views on this road are GORGEOUS. The road is in pretty good condition too

Broken Spur Inn | Torrey

Welcome, to The Broken Spur Inn! I was pretty excited to stay here. It has an awesome view, swimming pool, home baked goods, restaurant and cowboy attire. All things to make the perfect stay. The room was clean and organized. The bathroom, even cleaner. (I have morning sickness all day and so I made a prompt inspection on the toilet, unwillingly.)

Capitol Reef National Park Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Capitol Reef! We only spent half a day in Capitol Reef National Park, so here's the 3 things we did. 1. Visit Goosenecks Overlook We woke up from The Broken Spur Inn, had a delicious breakfast and headed out.

Goosenecks Overlook is pretty amazing, not quite as cool as this Gooseneck but lovely nonetheless. The kids got quite

Capitol Reef National Park

We woke up from our stay at Escalante Outfitters, walked the slot canyon near Boulder and after half a day of exploring, we finally made it to Torrey Utah. You might be wondering where all these little towns are in Utah, well, South-Central Utah is the best description. Why are we even in that part of Utah? It was my husbands super long way to drive to Monticello, which is in South-Eastern Utah. See, we were suppose to go to the Grand Opening at the Canyon Country Discovery Center in Monticello and my husband refused to drive the same way

Escalante Outfitters | Staycation

Hello Tiny House Movement! How many of you have seen the tiny homes? Or even know someone who's building one? I have two friends that just swapped their lovely homes for tiny houses. While I'm not sure I could live in 200 square feet, I could "camp" in these tiny cabins forever. We've teamed up with Escalante Outfitters to give you a tour of their tiny cabins. One of my absolute favorite parts of the tiny cabins is the smell. They smelled of pine and maybe just a tiny bit like my ponderosa trees that I love to smell so
