Mt. Timpanogos Hike

The summit of Mount Timpanogos can be view from nearly every direction whether you’re down in Provo, from the summits in the Cottonwoods, or just driving through Heber City. And ever since we saw its snow capped ridgeline when first visited Salt Lake, back in February of 2017, we knew we just had to hike it. On Saturday, September 14th, five of us, with two dogs, hit the Aspen Grove trailhead in hopes to be on the summit a few hours later. At 11,749 feet, Mount Timpanogos (or Timp), is the second-highest summit of the Wasatch Mountains. From the Aspen …

There were a few things that I definitely wanted to do on our road trip to Banff National Park in Alberta, CAN. One was rock climb somewhere new, and the other was to break out the mountain bikes as often as possible on the way. It didn’t take long to get our tires onto some dirt.

Fast-forward a few years, my girlfriend, Court, and I have …

The Foster 100 | Sponsoring Service Dogs for Veterans

Each September, for the past 3 years now, a group of cyclists have come together to ride their bicycles 100 miles from Philadelphia, PA to Cape May, NJ for the annual Foster 100. Grinding out 100 miles on a bike is very very tough, but it is far from the difficulties our veterans face in combat when serving our country. These struggles can even become even more difficult when they return home. Which is why Team Foster is sponsoring service dogs to partner veterans suffering from combat-related disabilities including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). My brother-in-law, Nick Liermann and …
