Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park is huge and the sweeping views are massive, it's really hard to capture them on camera and to see every part. We definitely gave it the old college try! I really love this quote from Major John Wesley Powell that they have at the Green River Overlook in Canyonlands. He described the area that is now the park as a "strange, weird, grand region of naked rock with … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #16 – Fort Collins

Our time in Fort Collins was like a mini retreat to recover from our previous month in Utah which was pretty non-stop. We arrived last Thursday to snow and rain and that continued for three additional days. So we rested. We took the opportunity to re-supply our food with trips to IKEA and Trader Joe's; get an oil change for the Jeep and a haircut for me. We visited family (my aunt, uncle … [Read more...]

Offroad Capitol Reef

Capitol Reef National Park is probably one of the lesser known parks in Utah.  Zion and Bryce Canyon, Arches and Canyonlands are far more popular. But now that I have been to all of Utah's Mighty 5, I'd have to say it was my favorite. I guess I love an underdog. There is a fairly large area of Capitol Reef that is family friendly and accessible. We visited inside the park and stopped in Fruita, … [Read more...]

Giveaway organized by: Oh My Gosh Beck! (Please email [email protected] any questions.) Co-Hosts: Jenn's Blah … [Read more...]

Utah Highway 12 Near Bryce Canyon

One of the outings we really enjoyed while we were visiting the Bryce Canyon area was driving along Utah Highway 12 and visiting some of the points of interest. You could do this drive in a single day, but it would be a long day. We covered it in one long day with a half day as well. It all depends how leisurely you want to be and what's of interest to you. This is what we did. Not in the order … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #15 – Grand Junction

Our week in Grand Junction was relatively quiet. We arrived in Colorado on Friday coming from Moab. After two weeks in Canyonlands and Arches National Parks and almost four full months in the Southwest, I was ready for some alpine green! On Saturday we headed to Colorado National Monument to scope out what photo opportunities we had.  We quickly realized that it was a pretty small park. Turned … [Read more...]

Journy to Lisbon

I've written before about my Portuguese heritage, mainly when it comes to food (as usual). I had the opportunity to visit Portugal with my family in 1989 or 1990 (the memory is slipping) when we spent time in the coastal resort, Cascais. I remember the octopus mainly (of course). Mr. Misadventures and I have planned several trips to Portugal, only to change to another location, one time Kyoto, … [Read more...]
