Checked off a bucket list adventure this weekend. Jordan and I headed up with my sister and her family to the Ice Castles in Midway, Utah!

We headed down to Joe’s Valley this past Labor Day weekend for some much anticipated outdoor bouldering. Our good friends Audrey and Ammon came with us, and we spent the final days of summer climbing some rocks!

Jordy is back! We can now resume our regularly scheduled program. He loved Asia, and his favorite stop was Hong Kong. We will share some of his photos and adventures from the trip, but I wanted to post some from our Sunday night drive last night.

Having the Wasatch mountain range in your backyard is both a blessing and a curse. We really do love living so close to the mountains. But we feel pretty guilty when we don’t take the time to spend our weekend in the outdoors. That’s why the hike to Lake Catherine is one of our favorites. The views are rewarding, and you can easily forget you’re just a mere 15 minute drive away from the city.

It’s already August.
I can’t even.

We visited Zion National Park a few weekends ago, and it rained almost the entire time. BUT as the locals pointed out to us, it was a pretty unique sight to see the red rocks covered in rain. The sun made an appearance intermittently throughout the weekend (jeez I sound like a weatherman). Anyway. It was wet, and beautiful.

Exploring the red rocks in Utah has been a long time coming for me. I’ve only been in Utah for a few years now, and the adventure to-do list is long. We trekked down to Zions recently, and checked out some beginner slot canyons (no rappelling, just hiking). I was a bit nervous about heading down the slots, as it had been rainy off and on all weekend. Flash floods are a big unknown for me. But we played it safe and stayed mostly on high grounds, and the rain held off just long enough for us to get a few dry hikes in. (Seriously, it started raining minutes before we got back to our car. Twice!)

Just outside of Zion National Park is a town called Kanarraville. Off of main street, you’ll find a trail that takes you in to some gorgeous slot canyons through Kanarra Creek Canyon. Prepare to get a bit wet, we hiked through some spots where the water was up to our knees (water socks saved my feet. That water was cold). We were a bit worried about flash flooding, but the rain held off just about until we made it back to our car.
Utah is RAD, guys.

This Easter weekend, I had the chance to video chat my family. My little sis is in San Francisco for the weekend, and we realized we had people in four different states during our video chat. California, Washington, Utah, and Atlanta! If only one of us were in New York, then we’d really have the states covered. Or Hawaii. :)
But speaking of San Francisco, I did shoot some film while we were there a few weeks back. So, here ya go!

Jordan took a quick trip out to Zion National Park with his cousins last weekend. I wasn’t able to go (this time), but I wanted him to share a few shots from his trip. We are already planning a trip back down there in a couple weeks!
Hiking through the freezing cold mountain water, balancing over wet slick rocks you can’t see beneath you, and stopping to look up the steep red rock walls of the Narrows is breathtaking- literally from the cold water and the views.
