ARCHES National Park - WITH KIDS - MOAB steph Wed, 05/19/2021 - 19:18
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

Moonflower Hike - MOAB

Right next to the Indian Ladder is the trail head to an awesome little hike. This hike is awesome, short, and has a beautiful pond at the end that kids can play in, but it is also covered with poison ivy, so stay on the trail! Poison ivy can be transferred from pet fur to human skin, so keep your pets leashed or leave them home for this hike. This is the poison ivy. It has three leaves that are pointy. And you can faintly see a reddish stem in the middle of the three leaves. The hike starts at

The Grotto in Hornet Canyon - Farmington

I love trying out a new trail, but I also get anxiety about it and find myself very resistant to the idea often times. What if I get lost? What if it's too hard? Well, I have gotten lost (and I did get lost on this hike lol), and I have always been able to do finish, no matter how hard it's been. And when I get lost (which is often), it always makes for a great story after. Well this hike has been on my list for awhile, so when a friend reached out and wanted to try a

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! It's 3 miles round trip, with very little elevation gain outside of the first 5 minutes of the hike. It’s only a 20 minute drive from Moab City. There is little shade, and we all know how hot Moab gets in the summer time, so this one is best in the early morning in summer, or plan

Pioneer Names | Snow Canyon State Park | Adventurin'

Yes, Utah has 5 National Parks, but how many State parks are there? Over 40 people. Having just recently discovered this fact, I'm pretty sure we're going to need to make a goal to visit each one and soon! Welcome back to Snow Canyon State Park near St. George. I really wish my favorite red rocks were just a tad closer. We actually went back in May, but I just barely found these photos, and it was pretty cold for some reason. I've spent very little time in Snow Canyon. The only time that I went was in college and
