Colorado National Monument – Fruita, Colorado

We took advantage of cooler weather Thursday (8/01/19) afternoon to visit Colorado National Monument. I was excited to see a tunnel cut right through the mountain. It was awesome driving through the mountain. What a great tunnel! There were actually three tunnels but I only snagged photos of one of them. You get the idea. … Continue reading Colorado National Monument – Fruita, Colorado

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park – Colorado

We decided to do a day trip to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It was a bit of a drive but we were close enough that we just couldn't pass it up.

Arches National Park & Portal RV Resort – Moab, Utah

Continuing our trek along Highway 50 (The Loneliest Road in America), we stayed just 2 nights in Moab, UT. Two nights was certainly not long enough to do it much justice. As my friend F.M. warned me, mid-July is not the best time of the year to visit Moab, UT. It's hot! The high temperature … Continue reading Arches National Park & Portal RV Resort – Moab, Utah

Great Basin National Park 🌌 & Sacramento Pass Rec. Area – Nevada

After surviving a Night at the Gas Station a few nights ago in Fallon, NV we decided to start our next destination drive a day early, swing by Great Basin National Park, and dry camp for the night.

Kings Canyon Waterfall – Carson City, Nevada

We haven't been on a hike in awhile and a Google search of "hiking for kids" in this area recommended Kings Canyon Waterfall Trail. It was 0.3 mile in and 0.3 mile out. That was really all K could handle today so it worked out pretty well. We got to ford a creek to get … Continue reading Kings Canyon Waterfall – Carson City, Nevada

Thousand Springs State Park, Idaho

Finally, we're having a sunny weekend with no storms looming in the distance. We were able to check out Thousand Springs State Park near Hagerman, Idaho. This state park is made up of 5 units.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Deschutes National Forest, Oregon

As part of B's 5th birthday celebration, we visited Newberry National Volcanic Monument in Deschutes National Forest, Oregon. *Fun fact: Deschutes means "falls" in French. Like Fancy Nancy says, everything is fancier in French! B says, "I'm the guard of my birthday and we're not doing school or taking showers and daddy's not working on … Continue reading Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Deschutes National Forest, Oregon
