Winter Camping

While some people think that camping season ends when summer does, fall and winter can actually be one of the best times of the year to go camping and has become our favorite season to explore some of our favorite places… the Utah desert is amazing this time of year! It’s still warm enough during the day but isn’t sizzling hot like it can be during the summer months and you’ll avoid some of the crazy crowds of people that you run into during the peak of summer camping season too.

We have been to the San Rafael Swell more times than I can count. It’s no secret this is one of our favorite places to go since we’ve done multiple blog posts about the Swell and it’s where our site title came from. 😉 It’s where my husband and I fell in love, where we escaped to relax and recharge when we needed a break from our 50 + hour work weeks… and now it’s where we are taking our boys so they can grow up exploring and loving this place as much as us.

Uinta

For us, this was the optimal feeling of what getting in the wilderness is all about. It felt like the perfect weekend outside…Blue skies, sunshine, time with the people we love the most just enjoying the simple pleasures in life!

Dripping Rock

This is the perfect, quick, easy outdoor adventure close to home.

THE HIKE

Hiking has always been something the two of us have loved to do together, and still love to do! It just looks a little different these days. What used to be the two of us hiking 15 miles a day through the desert and rugged terrain has turned into shorter, mini hikes with our babies in tow….but we are so happy that we are still able to get outdoors and hike some of our favorite trails and explore off the beaten path – our favorite way to adventure!

Initiation

We’ve been talking about taking our littlest guy on his first overnight camping trip for a long time now and with a warm weekend weather forecast we decided it was finally time to try it! We packed up what felt like the whole house and headed down to one of our favorite spots where we could enjoy the sunshine and let our kids play in the dirt. Don’t be fooled by this first picture, it was within ten minutes of getting to our camp site and he’s already covered in dirt from head to toe 😉

Ticaboo

With the temperatures rising and it feeling more and more like spring we have been dying to get out and explore somewhere new! With one of the warmest weekends so far this year we decided to head south and take these kiddies somewhere they have never been before. Utah has so many hidden gems and monumental places to explore, so there is always somewhere to go and something new to do.

Winter

We’re still here! Took a slight hiatus from blogging while we welcomed our new sweet babe and adjusted to life with two babies 😉 Even though blogging took a little back burner, we still managed to get out a few times with our kiddies this winter and felt like these little adventures needed a permanent place on our blog. Especially now since winter feels like it is in full force with snow pounding the nation, we wanted to reminisce on warmer (well… kind of warmer ) times!

Manti La Sal

The countdown is on until this next baby comes and we’re still trying to squeeze in a few last adventures while we can! This past weekend we knew we wanted to get out and do something, but didn’t know what. So we just packed up our stuff and loaded up the truck and set out on a drive and didn’t know where we would end up.
