Whether you’re on a road trip to see the Big 5 National Parks in southern Utah, or you only have one day to see the park; Bryce Canyon can be done in a day. And as much as I advocate for spending more time in a place to really appreciate it, I understand that we may not have that luxury. So if given the opportunity, go spend the day here and you’ll witness one of the most beautiful places on earth, all within a short walk from your car. The entrance to the park is about 4hrs from both, Salt …
Like most of you, I watch a lot of YouTube videos and endlessly scroll through Instagram. Watching the daily vlogs Casey Neistat, Peter McKinnon, Ryan VanDuzer, SingleTrackSampler, and BKXC to name just a few. Their stories and content are awesome. Every day, or nearly every other day, posting new videos. Some about nothing, others pretty epic.
But one thing they have in common, is that they are always posting. So does posting this much hold you accountable? Accountable to a life adventure?
What do you think? Does social media keep you accountable?
Utah is home to 5 of the most stunning National Parks. Zion, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Arches National Parks. Each is different than the last, yet, completely incredible and hard to compare. Whether it’s a an epic road trip to Utah, or if you plan to visit these parks one at a time, you will have an unforgettable journey.After moving to Utah in January of 2018, we made it a goal of ours to visit and explore all 5 parks as soon as possible. Since then we’ve fallen in love with the desert and constantly go back.
Spent the last weekend of summer at a high alpine lake in deserts of Nevada with Court & Gregor. It’s safe to say, Gregor loved the trip. Hiking and swimming are his two favorite things to do! We got to the campsite at night, so waking up, surrounded by these peaks were incredible. We spent the weekend hiking and swimming around Angel Lake and Smith Lake. Gregor was so tired after 3 straight days of these adventures!
At some point over the summer I found out Outside TV was creating their own content platform, similar to YouTube, called Outside TV Campfire. You upload your videos from your adventures to share with others who have epic adventures. Each month there’s a contest for the best videos. They pick a video each week to be the video of the week for a prize, and then one video gets picked each month to be the video of the month for a grand prize! And guess what? I won for the video of the month October 2018. I still can’t believe …
I’m Starting the vlog back up again, but this time, with a purpose! Rather than just filming the everyday adventures in the mountains or the nonsense with the pup, I wanted to make short videos about an idea that I have. Each episode will feature a new idea or problem that I’ve been thinking about or wrestling in my mind. This one is about how living in a vacation/ski town has changed my life. Check it out!
Future Episodes will touch on the following subjects: Go Hiking, All your videos will suck, Go out west, Supporting your local Bike Shop, Even if I fail and nothing comes from this, and Keeping yourself accountable.
Hope you tag along, and enjoy this new
What if I told you, that I camped, outside, for an entire month this year. And I did so without quitting my job. Crazy, right?! Admittedly, the title of the article is a little click-bait-ish, but it’s true. How did I manage to spend 30 nights, under the starts, since January 1, 2018, without skipping out on my job, or better yet, get fired? The answer is quite simple, and it’s not really a secret. All 30 of those nights, well they weren’t consecutive. I know, I know. I tweaked the truth, just a little bit, to get you here, …
The mountains of Utah are incredible. From the red cliffs of Moab, to the snow capped peaks in the Cottonwoods, they all offer some thing uniquely different to everyone. But when I came out to Salt Lake to visit my friend Luke last November, we took a spontaneous trip to somewhere neither of us had been before. That trip lead us down desert roads to probably one of the smallest mountain ranges in Utah. I’m talking about Sand Mountain, located in the Little Sahara Recreation Area. Getting here wasn’t difficult, but it was different. Hopping off the highways and onto …
When the perfectly contrasting colors of fall and winter come together on a cold day in October, something magical happens.(more…)
Bryce Canyon National Park is by far the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen, topping all of the other 4 national parks in Utah. So when my buddy was in town, it was a no brainer to take him there to get his adventure in. Needless to say, he was living life elevated while in Utah.(more…)
