☺️🙏🏼⛺️ it’s good to get away. We spent 2017 doing home projects and not as much road tripping and camping like usual, and it was a bummer! We’re determined to do more again in 2018 ✌🏼 . . . #roadtrippin #family #familyvacation #zion #weekenders #camplife #lovelife #exploremore #adventuremore #utah #trailrunning #traillove #ultrarunner #runtrails #optoutside #fambam #gopro #goprolandscapes #allthingsbrightandbeautiful #saveournationalparks #wildandfree #virginriver

{18 febbraio 2018} Ci sono cose che non si riescono a raccontare. Febbraio è il mese dell'amore e poco più di un anno fa scrivevo un articolo sul blog per il mio posto nel mondo. Pensare che dovevo ancora immergere i piedi nel Virgin River. Ho provato tante volte a raccontare i miei viaggi ma non ci sono mai riuscita per davvero, non come volessi. Rimango spesso senza parole, anche a casa, davanti alla tastiera. Ed è per questo che non riesco più a scrivere. Un po' mi manca a dirla tutta, ma come faccio a raccontarvi di quella volta che ho noleggiato un bastone di legno alto quanto me, calzini termici e scarpe impermeabili ancora umide riportate da poco da chissà chi altro, per percorrere un fiume controcorrente? Il bastone l'ho dovuto caricare di traverso sulla macchina e le scarpe erano bucate. Il cuore mi batteva a mille, il freddo faceva il resto. . . . . #lasciatemiqui #latergram #tbt #throwback #zion #zionnationalpark #virginriver #utah #visitutah #visitutahvalley #neverstop #adventurelife #usatrip #ontheroad #igers_usa #passionpassport #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #missingusa

Even the starkness of winter can’t diminish the beauty of a sunset over the Virgin River and the Watchman in the distance. What *could* diminish the quality of the environment within our national parks, however, are the “poison pills” in the President’s infrastructure plan and proposed FY19 budget proposal.

A wading hike through the narrows!

Quand prendre une marche à une autre signification! When taking a walk becomes special!

When I woke up at 4:30 in the morning, I thought twice. But I showered, dressed in layers, and headed out under a million stars in the night of Zion to do hike Angel's Landing, something that's been on my radar for years. . . It was well below freezing, and was nearly silent but for a few Marines ahead of me, hooting and yelping at each other in the night, well out of reach of the beam of my headlamp. I rose through the countless switchbacks of this trail, oblivious to the degree to which they stack on top of each other. . . Somewhere up Walter's Wiggles, I passed two of the Marines, clearly not as combat-ready as this 55-year old man, who also had to help them find the chains to get them across the narrow rock fin and up to the top. . . As the sky started to lighten with the approach of a new day, I climbed up the last of the approach, and onto the long stretch of sandstone that leads to the Landing. . . Then, this happened. And I remembered again for the thousandth time that there is always a solid reason to be up the trail before sunrise. . . . . #zionnationalpark #zion #nationalpark #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkalliance #nationalparkgeek #resist #saveourparks #preserveourparks #standwithnps #winterinzion #bestpartofutah #sutah #redrockcountry #virginriver #angelslanding #sunrise #sunriseinzion #sunriseonangelslanding #getoutofbed #hikealone #thenationalparkspass

Zion National Park, Utah. Hiking "The Narrows" at Zion National Park was really a blast. Zion canyon was carved by the Virgin River and it gets very narrow at the northern end. That is were the name of the hike comes from. You have to hike in the river flanked by vertical walls. I love this picture as the canyon itself is in the shade most of the time but the sun lit this tree for a few minutes and it was almost glowing. #zionnationalpark #thenarrows #utah #springdale #zioncanyon #virginriver

Last photo of being in the trail in Zion National Park for awhile. Save some for when you aren’t tired of them. Still majestic! #exploreeverything #justdoit
