Explore Yant Flat (Candy Canyon)

Southern Utah is known for its incredible sandstone rock formations. Take Zion and Arches for example, known around the world for their iconic viewpoints and hikes. But with that notoriety comes an endless stream of crowds and lines; not to mention park fees and permits. What if I told you there was another place, equally as stunning, that you could have all to yourself. And plus, you’re allowed to bring your dog with you! Well guess what, that place not only exists, but we just spent the weekend there and it was jaw dropping. The place I’m referring to is …

Summer in a Ski Town

I never thought I’d say this, but I think summers in a ski town are equally as good, if not better than during winter. I get it, without the winter, these types of towns wouldn’t even exist. But my first summer up in Park City, Utah has been some of the most fun I’ve ever had. The crowds are gone, the temps are warm, and best of all, no passes required. Let me explain. After moving to Salt Lake in January, with only a 6 month lease, we packed up our stuff again in June. This time we were headed …

Charged by a Moose | True Story

Today I was charged by a moose. Not a bluff, a full blown charge by a Momma Moose. It was, by far, the sketchiest moment of my life. At no point did I feel in control. And not only did I put my own life in danger, but I also put my dog, Gregor’s, life in danger. Which is another level of guilt and stress that I’ve never felt before. This is the story of what happened. Gregor and I headed out onto the trail for our normal run. It hasn’t snowed in days, so the trail is packed down …

Monument Valley

I’m not sure if there’s more of an iconic viewpoint than one as you drive down RT191, towards the buttes on the horizon. Even though most people may not know about this place, nor what it’s called; it is a crucial turning point (literally) in the movie Forest Gump. A scene that has seared this vista into everyone’s memory who’s watched that movie. You know, the one where Forrest is running across the country with a huge crowd of people following close behind. He turns around to finally address the crowd that has been running waiting with bated breath, to …

Looking Back on 2018 | A Year in Utah

This had been the most incredible, adventurous year of my life. To look back on these 365 days, I don’t even know where to begin. I guess, the obvious first step is January 1, 2018. After ringing in the new year in Quebec City, in below 0 temps, Court surprised me with dog sledding. Something I’ve never dreamt I’d get to do, turned out to blow my expectations out of the water. And that was only the first day of the year. From there on, it only got better.

Screw New Years Resolutions.. Make Goals for 2019

Reposting this article for 2019 since it will always be relevant. And I’ve updated it with my goals for the year. Forget about them! Resolutions are absolutely pointless. We all (myself included) make these unobtainable requests of ourselves to become the perfect version of ourselves… overnight. That is simply not how it should work, yet we do this every single year and are left disappointed by the end of February. Of course, the time of year never helps since most of us wish to be healthier and more active, in the coldest and shortest days of the year.

Purblind Pillar | Red Rocks Canyon | Multi-pitch Climb

900 feet above the ground from where I stepped off the deck and onto the first holds of the route. That’s when it finally hit me. The wave of accomplishment, stoke, and relief. We’d spent nearly the entire day on this wall, 7 hours to be exact, and our ascent was finally over. Even though it’s only rated a 5.8, the 6 pitches of the climb were one adventure after next. And for my first time on the Red Rocks of Vegas, it was one helluva trip.
