Broken Arrow Trail – Hiking – Sedona

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 ...

Montezuma Well – National Park Service

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., the National Park Service celebrates his birthday by offering the first of five in 2020 no-fee days at National Parks and Monuments. This inspired us to visit the Montezuma Well today. It was so cool to see this much water in the middle of the desert. 1.5 million ...

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. While staying at Jackson Lake Lodge, on a brisk early morning, we met Adel. One of our favorite things to do is to take the Jackson Lake Breakfast Cruise to Elk Island. We've learned ...

Glenwood Springs – Colorado

If you’re going to get stuck on a road trip, Glenwood Springs, Colorado is the place. Vail Pass (10,666' mountain pass over the Rocky Mountains) was closed due to a snowstorm so we enjoyed our extra day! We were here in April and this has become one of our favorite Colorado towns. There’s so much ...

The water created this ripple effect that looks like you're going into the depths of a beast. ...

We adopted our two dogs from Best Friends and we go back every year to volunteer at the sanctuary. (Which we highly recommend!) We are so excited that they recently built a hotel in Kanab, Utah ...

Under Canvas – Yellowstone

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. ...

Let Go

We attain freedom as we let go of whatever does not reflect our magnificence. A bird cannot fly high or far with a stone tied to its back. But release the impediment, and we are free to soar to unprecedented heights. - Alan Cohen Let go of the negative and make room for the positive. ...
