Exploring this area was high on our list, but it kept getting put off for various reasons. Butler Wash was located near where we were staying so this …

Several of the travel books/sites listed summer solstice as an event that is highlighted at several Utah destinations. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the longest day of the year.

Name an icon of the American West. Is Monument Valley your first thought? Even if you’ve never heard of Monument Valley, I know you’ve seen images of it!

On Saturday we set out for adventure in Moab, Utah. Keith and I wanted to share the uniqueness of Utah landscape with Thea and Moab is the perfect location.
