Our Final Days Around St. George Utah

In today’s video, we’re spending our last few days around St. George hanging out with Steve’s parents, hiking some more, eating some delicious local pie, and even checking out a cool local festival in between getting stocked up for our trip to Bryce Canyon. We loved the St. George area and we’ll be back!

Fun Finding Free Camping in Southern Utah

In today’s video, it’s time to move on from Snow Canyon State Park and try to find another free BLM boondocking location for 4 nights before we head to Bryce Canyon. We had scoped out a nice spot by the Upper Sand Cove Reservoir about 20 minutes from Snow Canyon. However, when we got there the spot was already taken and not in the way we expected. Our 30-minute move turned into a 3+ hour move trying to find a good spot. Add in horrible wind and nothing being level and it was a long day. However, it all worked out and we settled into a new spot just fine. Plus we learned a lot along the way and got to see a bunch of wildlife. Enjoy our adventure!

Kannarraville Falls Hike – GORGEOUS Slot Canyon

In today’s video, we hike Kannarraville Falls. This hike was breathtaking. It starts as an easy hike along a dirt road for about 1/2 a mile. There are some hills on the road but it’s not bad. Eventually, you are one smaller dirt paths that crisscross the creek. Here is where it starts getting fun.

We wore neoprene socks and water shoes and we highly recommend doing that. We were sometimes in water almost up to our knees and it was FREEZING!

At the end of the hike, you get to a gorgeous slot canyon and you have no choice but to walk up the creek and climb up a really cool ladder beside a waterfall. There is more to this hike but the water was so high when we went in April that we couldn’t continue. We plan to try again and get to the second waterfall ladder in the fall. We highly recommend this hike!

The Clark County Fair & Rodeo (Our First Rodeo)

In today’s video, we take you with us to the Clark County Fair & Rodeo in Nevada. We walk around the fair a bit, grab a little fair food and then head into the stands for our first rodeo experience. This was a professional rodeo, with money on the line for the contestants and it was interesting to see what it was all about. We hope you enjoy!

Hiking Angels Landing in Zion National Park

In today’s video, we hike the iconic Angels Landing Hike in Zion National Park and we take you with us. This hike is rated strenuous and involves using chains to get to the top. We would say it was actually less strenuous then the Picacho Peak Hike we did a couple of weeks ago, mostly because up until the chains the entire path is paved. Once you get to the chains this hike is SCARY! Or at least it is for those of us with any fear of hikes. However, the payoff is unbelievable. One bucket list hike checked off!

Boondocking in St. George, Utah

In today’s video, we chat about the crazy few days we’ve had. We moved 3 times in 4 days but we’ve learned a lot in the process! We share our experiences plus a small look at our new spot (which we hope to be in for a while). Now that we’re settled into St George, expect some adventure videos to come.

Stay tuned for Thursday’s video for when we hike Angels Landing in Zion National Park!

Valley of Fire State Park – So Gorgeous!

In today’s video, we’ll show you are boondocking spot on Sand Mine Rd right outside Valley of Fire State Park. We loved this spot…except for the crazy wind, we had for a couple of days. Being on a bluff makes for exceptionally windy nights. We also take you along on a number of hikes in the gorgeous Valley of Fire State Park. We highly highly recommend this park to anyone coming into the area. It’s not far from Vegas and exceptionally beautiful.

Stay tuned for Monday’s video for more about the wind and our departure for St George Utah a couple of days earlier than planned.

First Night Boondocking & Heading to Valley of Fire

After a few nights parked outside Courtney’s parent’s house in the Phoenix area, we embark! We’re heading to Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada but decided to split up the 6-hour drive into 2 days. We spent the night at a boondocking spot on BLM land on Signal Rd off of Rte 93. It was a quiet uneventful night before we hit the road again and made it to another boondocking site outside of Valley of Fire State Park. Boondocking (for those who don’t know) is camping without any hookups (electric, sewer, or water) often in a remote location and often for free!

Stay tuned for Thursday’s video where we hike all over Valley of Fire State Park. It’s gorgeous!

Hiking Picacho Peak

We’ve passed Picacho Peak close to a hundred times in our time living in Tucson. We had heard great things about the hike and so we knew that should be our first hike of our full-time Airstream travels. We had no idea what we were getting into! We made it but that hike kicked our butts. We made it all the way to the top of the tallest peak! Pretty awesome hike but when they say difficult they mean it. Hope you enjoy!
