One Blanket, Two Hearts

The human connection.  Traveling always offers the most interesting conversations and connections with strangers. Each encounter teaches us something and leaves an imprint.

Glenwood Springs – Colorado

If you’re going to get stuck on a road trip, Glenwood Springs, Colorado is the place.

There’s so much ...

Belly of the Dragon – Kanab, Utah

Would you dare the depths of the Belly of the Dragon?

Lone Rock Beach – Lake Powell – Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

What an incredible find! While staying in Kanab, Utah and volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society, we wanted to take a short trip to Lake Powell.

Restaurants – Driggs, Idaho – Teton Valley
