Adventure 57

The name, “Adventure 57” came to Todd and I on a hike we took in November 2015 along the Pony Express Trail in Utah. We joked with each other that day that we had to be on our adventure 57 by now because we were always heading out the door going somewhere. That term stuck with us and going forward every time we went out to do something we referenced our “Adventure 57.” I’m sure by now if we were actually keeping count we would be well into the hundreds of our so called adventures, so we realized we should start a blog to start documenting it all. As we share our travel expeditions, can’t miss tips and tricks, and other random ideas; share yours with us as well! If there are some interesting sites to see, and places we just can’t miss let us know and we will go check them out!

  While we have had more time at home lately due to our little one we started up a little side hobby of making jewelry since we weren't out exploring every weekend like we used to be! We instantly fell... Continue Reading →

Plus One

We are still here! It's been almost a year since we have done a blog post... we took a little break while we welcomed our little babe into the world and adjusted to life with a newborn. While our summer wasn't filled with spontaneous trips to the mountains, every day was still filled with new and exciting challenges. We are finally starting to get back out again and learning how to hike and camp with an 8 month old baby. Here is a collection of pictures from this past fall and winter.

Out N Back

We're still here! We haven't been that great at keeping up with our blog lately, but we have still had some amazing trips around Utah that we wanted to share with you. We found a few new spots that we loved, as well as visited some of our old time favorites. Here are some pictures from the last few months from Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon, Zion and Bears Ears! 

Zion

One of our favorite trips from last year was when we went down to Zion in the fall because we loved being able to see the colorful fall leaves paired with the red rock backdrop.  Since we haven't had a chance to make it down to Zion this year yet, we decided to drive down for a quick day trip this past weekend.

It's been a crazy summer and seems like it went by in a flash! Did it fly by for anyone else?? We are so excited for the fall and it's definitely our favorite time of year! We love the cooler days and the crisp fall nights, and this is when we find ourselves out exploring every weekend! It's a nice change after a hot, busy summer filled with crowds everywhere you go!

This past weekend we headed down to Canyonlands for a sunset hike to False Kiva and some star gazing under the new moon. Out of the many times we have been to this area we have never done this monumental hike and I am so glad we were finally able to see it at sunset because this time of day casts the best shadows! The only thing I didn't enjoy were the bats that flew above us as we hiked back out! The desert seems to come alive at night with all the creatures above and around you! We decided to sleep in the back of the truck so we could spend the night looking at the stars. It was a quick, spontaneous trip but those have become some of our favorite because the memories we make last forever.

In Ruins

The last adventure we went on before we got married was a trip to Beef Basin. Beef Basin is a remote area in southeastern Utah about 50 miles southwest of Moab. It is encircled by Canyonlands to the north, Glen Canyon to the west, and Dark Canyon Wilderness to the south.

It's the Fourth of July weekend and definitely one of our favorite weekends of the year!! For us, the Fourth of July always involves: fireworks, barbecues, and getting outside. Today we decided that we would try and beat the heat with an early morning hike up the back side of Timpanogos Mountain.

Hitched

We haven't been as active on the blog lately because we have had our biggest and best adventure yet this month!! We finally tied the knot! The past few months have been filled with wedding planning, getting hitched, and honeymooning - the most exciting and fun trip we have been on yet!
