Joshua Tree is unlike any other US national park I’ve ever been to. We could only afford a few hours there, which, by and large is enough for a drive through, but I can’t wait to go back and do some real climbing when the kids are a little bigger. But for now, the rocksContinue reading “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (or, the things you find in the desert, part 2)”

If you haven’t been to Moab and the parks, do yourself a favorContinue reading “Hell’s Revenge (Otherwise Known as “One day My Wife Will Get Hers”)”
Salt Lake City exceeds expectations!
When we decide to get out and end up somewhere we don’t belong.
After all that, we didn’t even talk about our first destination… On our maiden voyage, we spent a night in Portland, OR, then moved on to Astoria. We stayed at the KOA there, which was actually pretty awesome! They had the typical pancake breakfast, kids bike-friendly property, the usual KOA works. They even had mini golf andContinue reading “Maiden Voyage Part 2”
