Zion National Park

Zion is one of the most beautiful places to visit in our country and provides so many wonderful views of nature and wildlife it is almost criminal not to see it. In this video, I share some of the most popular areas of the park including the hike to Angels Landing and The Narrows.

Road Trip Preparations: Cooking Food on the Road

For my upcoming trip, I wanted to make sure I was able to prepare my own foods while van camping. I also wanted to make sure whatever I chose did not take up a lot of space in my van. In this video, I demonstrate the portable butane single burner stove I found on Amazon

I will be doing some car camping at Death Valley National Park where the temperatures can reach into the 100’s. Given that fact, I decided to make myself an awning for my camper van.¬†

This is Rocky Mountain National Park

One of the most beautiful stops we made on our Colorado and Utah adventure was to Rocky Mountain National Park. We drove along the trail ridge road and up to an elevation of about 12,000 feet. We stopped at various spots to capture these magnificent views. It truly is one of the prettiest places I have ever been to. At one point, we stopped to go up a trail called the tundra communities trail. It wasn’t very long but it was very windy. It was on this trail that I had a marmot come right up to me as if to ask me to take his picture. I obliged of course and watched him for a brief while until it became just too cold and windy to do so. This vacation with my kids was a dream of mine for so long and I am glad I got to share the experience with them.
