We tried to beat the 100 degree weather we've been having in Utah lately and headed to the Uinta Mountains this past weekend. With the higher elevation it made for a nice change to finally have temperatures in the 80's. The Uinta Mountain Range is part of the Rocky Mountains, and is the highest mountain range in the United States that runs east to west (most run north to south).
We're still here and surviving the winter, even though we haven't been good at blogging about it! Did January feel like it was soooooo long for anyone else??? 😉 The whirlwind of Christmas and New Years came and went and now we're counting down the days for warmer weather! Unfortunately for us, we still have a few more months of winter... so we are still finding ways to get outside as much as we can doing winter things that we love!
I've said it so many times before, but Fall in Utah is my favorite season ever! I love when the leaves start to change and the mornings start to get crisp, but the afternoons are still warm... and I really love the yummy comfort food I can start cooking again 😉 but what I love … Continue reading Boulder
While we love to get out and about and explore the world around us, we also just love the times we get to be home! We live in the prettiest state surrounded by mountains, so we try to take advantage of some of the amazing places near by, and just enjoy our summer nights in our back yard 🙂 The sunflowers covering the fields around us this time of year are my favorite!
We're still here! We haven't been that great at keeping up with our blog lately, but we have still had some amazing trips around Utah that we wanted to share with you. We found a few new spots that we loved, as well as visited some of our old time favorites. Here are some pictures from the last few months from Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon, Zion and Bears Ears!
The last adventure we went on before we got married was a trip to Beef Basin. Beef Basin is a remote area in southeastern Utah about 50 miles southwest of Moab. It is encircled by Canyonlands to the north, Glen Canyon to the west, and Dark Canyon Wilderness to the south.
Spring is finally here and we are taking advantage of every free weekend we have! We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area where you can be in mountain meadows one day, and then in the desert exploring Indian ruins the next. We hope everyone is enjoying the change of season and getting ready for your next adventure! We definitely are, and we can't wait to show you what we have been up to!
Over Thanksgiving weekend we headed out to fill our Christmas tree permit and finally get started with the Christmas season. We love having a real Christmas tree and the experience of going to the mountains to find and cut down our own. With high hopes of discovering the perfect tree we drove to the Manti-La Sal National Forest and started our search.
As we were talking about the places we have been and making plans for what we still want to do, we couldn’t stop laughing at some of the things that happened to us this past season. While we go to these amazing places for the scenic views, and hope for a perfect experience and trip, it’s always the unexpected moments, or the funny, unplanned things that happened to us that leave a lasting memory.
