Such an amazing weekend down in Zion (@zionnps
) with Noah ( @hoffnoah
) and Kelsey. Can't wait to go back and explore this area some more!
The world at your fingertips 🌎
Hanging out in the Subway pools 💦.
Doing this hike in Zion marked my completion of all the major hikes in the park I set out to conquer: Angels Landing, Observation Point, the Narrows top-down, and the Subway.
I fell in love with this park 6 years ago when I first drove through it on a road trip. I knew I would come back and do some epic hikes. While all of the National Parks and forests have inspired me and pushed me to places I never thought I could go, Zion has a special place in my ❤️ for being the first to inspire me to hike longer distances and embark on my first backpacking trip.
Until next time, Zion✌️. #itsbeenreal
We have been so busy that we haven’t taken the (red) 1948 Blackhawk camping since the beginning of May! Or any trailer!!! Don’t get me wrong building and restoring trailers is my favorite thing to do! But i hate that I don’t get to go camping as much as I’d like to. I am so excited to be going camping finally this weekend! We’ll be headed to Utah and going to the beautiful national park of Zion.
Minutes after we passed this pool, while we were rigging up the last rappel, we heard the first long, rolling thunder. The rain started a dainty patter on the water, pretty and terrifying, while the dark began to pool and flow in the canyon around us. We’d need another, smoother trip later that year before we’d see the Subway’s barrels and cauldrons in their famous, golden light.
But I saw this water like a jewel in the red sandstone, cold and clear and of a depth I could not fathom. There are cracks and faults in the earth which only the water sounds, and to look too deep gives me chills.

Zion canyon at summer break / over 1500 mile driving trip for four canyons / not anymore road trip in a year maybe 😬 / ca-ut-az-nv
My favorite photo of my parents is hopefully turning into a tradition. Maybe someday I will bring a husband and maybe even some kids here too.
This trip probably wouldn't have happened if 8 years ago my father hadn't taken me on a trip through southwestern Utah. Our main destination: Zion. . Long before I was even an idea, and when few people knew about how amazing this area is, my parents were some of the few visitors to the area (barely 2 million per year then vs. approaching 5 million now with crowd control methods in place).
I had grown up hearing stories of Angel's Landing, but had zero frame of reference for what it was really like. Yes this was pre-instagram! So my dad and I hopped on some planes, trains, and automobiles and made it to Zion.
Much like everyone else, I was blown away by Zion, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Capitol Reef. I knew that someday I'd be back to explore more than just a few days. Thanks, Dad, for showing me such an awesome place that has set the stage for a lifetime of adventures!

"Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God."
The summer months in Utah are called "The Monsoon Season" (this place hasn't change *that* much since the Jurassic!). We reached a drop dead gorgeous view off the beaten path at #jollygorge
You can see the #cumulonimbus
forming as we hike! We were out of harm's way before it struck.
