Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Favorite Restaurants

Fresh raspberries picked from their garden. Driving Teton Pass towards Jackson from Idaho at sunrise is breathtaking. For the last few years, we have made it a priority to get up early and catch the sunrise at 8,432 feet. Then it's off to Nora's Fish Creek Inn for breakfast! Nora's has rustic charm with outstanding ...

Sedona, Arizona – Restaurants

Our all time favorite restaurant in Sedona is The Hudson. We order this pork chop every time (see video below for full effect). It's one of the best things I've ever tasted. Their tagline is "A Neighborhood Restaurant" and that's exactly how it feels. It's so fun to sit at the bar and chat with ...

Yellowstone – Under Canvas – Glamping

As we turned off Highway 20 in West Yellowstone onto a dirt road and drove under the log archway for Bar N Ranch, we could see the canvas tents in the distance of this beautiful, secluded, wide-open space. Wildflowers added pops of colors, horses were running in the pasture and the mountains layered the horizon. ...

Horseshoe Bend – Glen Canyon National Recreation Area – Arizona

This is what you see as you walk the 3/4 mile from the parking lot to the overlook of Horseshoe Bend. It's so flat that it's hard to believe you will see an awe-inspiring deep canyon. I kept imagining what the first people must have thought as they traveled this flat land and then to ...

Monument Valley – Navajo Nation – Utah

Natural Wonders. Navajo Nation's Monument Valley Park is located on the Arizona/Utah border. These grand, mysterious, sandstone monuments formed over millions of years and show us what happens when Mother Nature is left alone to do her thing. Our first stop as we headed towards Monument Valley from Durango, Colorado was Goosenecks State Park in ...

Best Friends Roadhouse & Mercantile – Utah – Pet Friendly

Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile is a lovely new pet-friendly lodging option in Kanab, Utah. It's the perfect complement to a Best Friends Animal Sanctuary volunteer trip or the ideal place to stay with pets while traveling in Southern Utah. I wrote about Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile last October when we toured the Roadhouse ...

The Block – Dog Friendly Patio – St. Louis Park, Minnesota

For Valentine's Day, we brought our favorite Valentine (our rescue dog, Allen) to The Block in St. Louis Park to check out their dog-friendly patio. We were so impressed! They have thought of everything to make your dining experience with your pup amazing. Allen has been to restaurant patios but has always been the only ...

Sedona, Arizona – Hiking – Broken Arrow Trail

Broken Arrow is a new trail for us this year. We were hesitant to hike here because the trail runs parallel to the jeep path and we thought it would be disruptive. The jeeps didn't bother us at all and it was fun to watch them cruising over the red rocks. The hiking distance for ...
