Summer Bucket List

As we explained in our last post, Summer Bucket List Review, Keith and I were staying more local this summer with lots of visitors in Utah. This was a great opportunity to attend events and explore closer to home.  We created a bucket list and checked off lots of fun activities.

Hiking

There are SO MANY hikes around our area and although we had a good start, there are many more we wanted to do.  Throughout the summer, Keith and I mixed in new destinations with nearby hikes to work on our endurance.

Jeep Driving

Keith and I got a taste for jeeping while on our motorhome trips and soon realized there were lots of off-road routes closer to home. We added this to our bucket list and soon started filling our calendar.
