Cassidy Arch Trail | Capitol Reef National Park

We're super excited to introduce Arika from Zion Adventure Photog! Actually, you might remember her SWEET photos from our Snow Canyon trip on our Yuba bike. If you are ever in need of an awesome adventure photographer in Southern Utah, be sure to hit her up! On our recent spring break adventure to Capitol Reef National Park, my favorite hike by far was Cassidy Arch Trail. We have an eight-year-old, five-year-old and two-year-old and luckily when we set out to hike Cassidy Arch, I had no idea that the hike was rated as strenuous or I might have changed my

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

Hickman Bridge Trail | Capitol Reef National Park

I love seeing arches and natural bridges! At least for me, I feel awestruck at seeing such land features. It’s so crazy that mother nature put such a thing here! It’s a pretty scenic trail too. I have seen reviewers refer it as “relaxing”, but maybe not so much when you have a set of toddlers, and you get a later start in the day, and it’s hot. This is a trail that is 2 miles round trip. The trail head isn’t too far away from the visitor’s center. Although one of my twins did have some serious struggles, my

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.) I love rooms that have themes, I think it makes for the whole experience. After spending a few minutes at the swimming pool and hot tub to get the last of the wiggles out we headed to bed. (Somehow

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. It was fairly cool for being the middle of the desert, but after 15 minutes walking out to Goosenecks Overlook we were sweating! We were soon taking off all the layers we had so carefully put on. 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
