The Blue Lakes Trail Colorado

This hike was one that I have been wanting to do for some time. It is a relatively easy 6.6 out and back hike with only the first mile or so being the most difficult. The pay off for this hike is three of the most beautiful blue glacier fed mountain lakes you can imagine. I only saw one of them and we also had a surprise visitor on the trail but I would recommend this hike to anyone.

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.

Half Dome

For my first video of the 18 day road trip, I present to you my hike up Half Dome at Yosemite National Park. This was probably one of the most challenging and satisfying things I have done to date. I am so glad I did not give up on the trail when I wanted to so many times.

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
