ARCHES National Park - WITH KIDS - MOAB

Can you believe I own the Salt Project and have never explored Arches! True story. We drove through on our way from Texas to Utah probably 9 years ago, and thats it. We had our dog so we couldn't hike, so we just held our dog and walked out to the Delicate Arch look out (5 minute walk). So boring. I know. Heres the thing. I didn't start this blog because I have been everywhere and was an expert. Quite the opposite actually. I grew up in a home where going to McDonalds was a big deal and I can

Corona and Bowtie Arches | Not in Arches National Park

This is a great hike in Moab to a giant arch- and the best part is, it’s outside of Arches National Park! So if you do not want to buy a pass into the park, this is the hike for you. It’s free!

Could you imagine waking up every morning and gazing at this arch? Hole N' 'The

Camping in Moab | Arches National Park | Canyonlands National Park | Dead Horse Point State Park

Need an amazing Spring Break destination within a few hours driving distance from home? Look no further than Moab! At just under 4 hours away from Salt Lake City, this place makes an incredible base for tons of family-friendly explorations of southern Utah. Now is a great time of year to hit up southern Utah, before the heat waves of the summer hit and make visiting the area a bit more unbearable. Back in September, my husband and I took our three little girls and joined up with some friends of ours (husband + wife + 6 little kids) to
