Red rock junkie. Itching for more hikes in this beautiful canyon 🤘🏼☄️
So I’m officially two months behind sharing pictures of our cross-country National Park trip. And since we are starting yet ANOTHER National Park trip in three weeks, I need to get CRACKIN’!
August 20: After Canyonlands in the early afternoon, we got back to camp and made dinner, then headed out to Arches National Park for sunset. It’s really hard to describe this place other than just magic. It’s like no place I’ve ever seen, and seeing it in the evening light just brought out all the colors even more. We headed to the most popular Windows section of the park, because we didn’t have enough time to hike to Delicate Arch - kicking ourselves for this... you’ll find out why in my next post.
Even though it wasn’t Delicate Arch, the Windows has some incredible arches packed into a small space, with very little hiking required.
Double arch (photo 1) is simply incredible. It is massive. I was too nervous to climb up into it that day, but I went back the next day! Scoob climbed into Turret Arch and struck his signature pose (picture 3). Then we walked around to the backside of North Window Arch (picture 4) and back to the front where you can see North and South Window (picture 5). We settled on a sunset viewing spot from North Window Arch (picture 6), and I took a video to try and show the epic size and beauty of this place (first video). There is also a fun time lapse of the obscured sunset, but the moving clouds turned out to be really neat.
That night was truly our only uncomfortable night of camping in the heat - it was probably 80-90 degrees when we went to bed. I was worried about camping across the country in August but most nights we were just fine!
The next day contained SO. MANY. ADVENTURES. It’ll take two posts!
ATTENTION WORLD... meet me team! 👭👫 They’re some of the most caring, adventurous, awesome and bada$$ people I’ve had the pleasure to meet & work with over the past couple years! And that’s all I have to say about that! 😊
P.S. To all my other team-members that I didn’t get a chance to meet this past weekend, MISSED YOU, and can’t wait to see you somewhere around the world soon! 🌍✌🏻
I’m back from my social media fast and can honestly say I’ve learned more about living in the moment. What better way to do that than take some of the nieces to hike Delicate Arch. With some help, even the 4 year old made it. Camped in the rain but stayed warm and dry- look at those smiles. You think it’s a big deal when you accomplish something difficult as an adult...it’s even bigger when you accomplish that task as a child. They loved every minute, and we couldn’t have done it without @magnum_remington_
there to help! Y’all are rockstars! #utahnationalparks #archesnationalpark #delicatearch
Last spring I applied for a dream job right before I hit the road. I found out on my trip that I didn’t get it. I felt like the biggest failure and it wrecked me.
Deep down I knew it wasn’t right for me. It was a 9-5 desk job at a fashion brand that would have killed my creativity. I beat myself up for a long time but eventually realized, sometimes you miss out on good opportunities to allow for great opportunities.
If I got that job, I wouldn’t have been able to take this trip and work with these incredible brands.
I wouldn’t have had the chance to build relationships with sweet friends out here. I wouldn’t have really discovered my true capabilities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m trying to have more peace about my path, even when the road becomes unclear and I really hope you all can too. Just know there are far greater things ahead of you. Even when it feels hopeless, keep believing, keep dreaming, and keep striving.
“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt” 😉
Not all exercise has to be done in a gym…sometimes the best workouts actually take place in nature! 🌿
I’ve never been a huge gym rat…so whenever I get a change to hit a trail I prefer to get my exercise done out there. Not only do I get my blood flowing, but the scenery makes it that even that much better! ·
Who else prefers a Trail to a Gym!? 🙋🏼♀️
WOW, talk about a view! 🙌🏻
This past weekend was our first time visiting Zion Nation Park and we can’t say enough great things about it! It was truly incredible being surrounded by giants of nature. It really got us wanting to rent a van and take a little road-trip to check out the rest of the awesome parks in the US.
Has anyone ever gone on road trip to see all the National Parks??
