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

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
Indian Ladder - Moab steph Wed, 05/19/2021 - 19:13
Our friends took us to this awesome climbing area in Moab. The front is covered in pictographs. It's called the Indian Ladder, but I don't think it's been around that long. The ladder is made up of smooth logs that have been jammed into the cracks in the rock. All the kids lined up for their turn up. The first ladder is low enough for anyone to climb up, but the next ladder is quite the stretch. I'm guessing its 6ft up. I could reach it on my tippy toes, but didn't have enough upper body strength to do a
The Grotto in Hornet Canyon - Farmington steph Sun, 03/07/2021 - 13:13
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
Snow Shoeing STEWART FALLS - Winter Edition steph Tue, 03/02/2021 - 12:48
*Please note, this hike falls in an avalanche zone. Always check Utah Avalanche Center before any winter hiking. Driving up Provo Canyon to Sundance is so beautiful. You can see the amazing Bridal Veil Falls to the south, and there is an awesome paved trail to explore there. Snowshoeing has been on my winter bucket list for years now. I always add it half heartedly, knowing that if the opportunity presents itself I'll jump at it. But I'm not going to go seeking it out. Well our friends invited us up to their cabin in Sundance last weekend to go
The "Y" - BEST HIKING GUIDE steph Thu, 11/12/2020 - 18:18
Bucketlist item 2020! I'm a huge bucketlist advocate, I feel like if it doesn't go on my list then it doesn't happen. I also feel like if I something to my list, no matter how random it is, the opportunity often presents itself. Hiking the Y has been on my mental list since I was a kid. But this year it actually made it onto paper. When we visited Utah County for a staycation this summer, it was on my list, but we just couldn't squeeze it in with all the fun stuff there is to do in Provo. A
Fifths Hot Springs - HIKING GUIDE steph Thu, 11/12/2020 - 18:18
*NOTE: As of September 2020, this trail is closed indefinitely for public health and safety. Please check here for updates and more information: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/uwcnf/recarea/?recid=9861 This hike is currently closed due to COVID-19 or a death from what I can see. This trail has been closed most of 2020, from what I can see, so I have been putting off writing/sharing this post basically an entire year. But, I decided to go ahead and post about it before I completely forget all the details of the hike. And y'all can pin it to your hiking Pinterest board, and check it out
Bridal Veil Falls & River Walk steph Mon, 08/31/2020 - 21:10
This is an awesome 15 minute paved trail, perfect for bikes, strollers, and skateboards and ends with a 607-foot-tall double cataract waterfall in the south end of Provo Canyon. If you just want to see Bridal Veil Falls, you have a couple options. You can pull right up and get photos from your vehicle at the look out point. You can park right next to the falls, walk across the bridge and you're there! Or you can start at the first parking lot (our recommendation) and walk 15 minutes along the paved trail that runs along the raging river. Once

Antelope Island Winter Part Dos | Adventurin'

After hearing that Camille went out to Antelope Island in the Winter, I knew what my family would be doing for Martin Luther King Day. Luckily, we did completely different things. Just goes to show there is much to do on Antelope Island. We headed on out to Antelope Island on a drizzly, cold January day. First stop, the Visitor Center. Don't worry, Aiko made it there safely with her hiking sticks. Apparently, this Visitor Center has been there for quite a few years. I've never been and for some reason thought that it was new (in the last few
