Bryce Canyon is a tiny park, but it packs a lot of magic in that acreage! On our first day, we explored the Queen’s Garden and Navajo Loop Trails, two of the park’s most popular. It was a stunning introduction to the hoodoos, fins and windows that put Bryce on the map. The next day we set out on a longer adventure around the Fairyland Loop, an aptly named, 8-mile trek along the rim and through the canyon’s hoodoos, with a picture around every corner. Utah, man. This state is bonkers good!
National park 51/59: Bryce Canyon. After this many parks and this many sign pictures, the kids can’t be bothered to pause their climbing for a photo ☺️. Graham is getting pretty good!

This last week we flew to Salt Lake, I took engagement photos for my brother-in-law, we spent some time with cousins on my side, went to a family reunion in Moab, hiked in Arches National Park, swam and swam and swam, went rock climbing in Big Cottonwood Canyon, played games, biked around on a Madsen cargo bike and met the owners and toured the warehouse where all the magic happens (this was a a huge highlight of our trip!! Check out @madsencycles), drank Jamba Juice, and flew back home. Our home was also featured on the designmom blog Living with Kids feature. A wonderful break and some seriously needed family time!
Delicate Arch did not let us down. This three mile round trip hike is marked as difficult, but being the stubborn active family that we are, we decided to just go for it. I am so glad we did. Benjamin, who is two, insisted on hiking at least a mile of it on his own. Most attempts at carrying him resulted in a major tantrum and his push for us to let him down. I wish I could personally apologize to the Italians hiking alongside us who listened to his screaming for a few minutes before we gave in and let him do it on his own. If you’ve ever hiked #delicatearch you know just how dangerous and scary the last leg of the hike can be with small children. We were able to get a family pic in front of the arch, unfortunately one which didn’t turn out very great, just before I tucked my camera in the camera case and sat it down to tend to Benjamin. Seconds later my camera case began to roll toward the center of the big drop off below the arch. I reached to grab it, but it rolled fast and I wasn’t willing to put either of our lives at risk, so it rolled all the way down. Luckily three young guys came and offered to retrieve it. Only minor damage to the battery cover was found, and we all made it safely back. Let’s just say my anxiety level was at a ten as we meandered back down to the safer section of the hike. This will be a hike none of us ever forget, and I encourage you to add this to your bucket list if you’ve never done it before. *
Glacier was so much more than I ever imagined. We caught the sunset at a pull off on the going to the sun road. Its hard to believe people have been enjoying this road since the 1930's! Thank you @nickrnd93 for driving so I could just take it all in.
