Day 27: Fisher Towers

I officially fell in love again with the Moab area this visit. All our hikes were perfect, we found some good food, soaked up the decent temperatures, mixed in some relaxation with adventure, and got to see Ranger Mike. Our hike today was easy, but so lovely. We’ve done the hike before a few years […]

Day 27

I woke up today the earliest I have this trip (I think) 6:45. Today we did the hike that we planned on doing yesterday but, ended up cancelling. The hike is called Fisher Tower and and if there’s one thing I learned it’s that I still don’t like ladders. The hike was cool because we […]

A Little Bit of Everything

“‘Cause it’s a little bit of everything” Dawes We’d planned on doing a couple shorter hikes today, but as the rain settled in and Ellie pointed out that all of our muscles were still sore from the last few days we settled for just one. It was a good one though! We visited Morning Glory […]

Today and a lot of good and a fair amount of bad. I’ll start with the more unfortunate, to get it out of the way. Ellie’s glasses broke. We’re trying the Gorilla Glue method of fixing them, but I’m not very hopeful. We’re heading to Salt Lake City in a couple of days where there […]

Fettuccine Alfredo

No, I did not get a large buttery, cheesy, hot bowl of fettuccine alfredo but I would do just about anything for one right now to replace the essence of chewy gross beef jerky I just tried to swallow for dinner. We woke up decently late and enjoyed a warm cinnamon roll outside before heading […]
