Summer Adventure: Great Basin National Park

Last weekend I decided to visit an area that I’ve never been before. I first headed out to Delta, UT, for a day of exploring Topaz Mountain, Topaz Internment Camp, and the Delta Solar Ruins. After I awoke to a beautiful sunrise in the Utah desert, I packed up my car and headed southwest to Baker, NV. My next stop: Great Basin National Park. One thing about me that I don’t think a lot of people realize is that I really...

Summer Adventure: Delta

This last weekend I took a quick little road trip out to Delta, UT. This is one area of the state that I haven’t explored at all but it’s long been on my list of destinations to visit.

I had just enough time to explore the area a bit and make up my mind that I really want to plan a second trip out there with...

Pando and Fremont Indian State Park

My summer adventures actually started a bit early this year and this spring, over Mother’s Day weekend, I took the offspring on a quick trip to Sterling, UT. My aunt has a cabin down there and we love to use it as a home base for some exploring. There’s so much to see and do down that way. As this was a pretty quick trip (less than two full days), we only had time for a couple of adventures. They were awesome adventures, though! Pando...

Summer Adventure: Saint George

It’s no secret: I love to adventure. In fact, I’m calling this summer “Candice’s Summer of Adventure.” Earlier this year I planned out my entire spring into fall and filled it with all sorts of adventures spanning pretty much the entire state. I’ll be posting about all the places I’m visiting. I hope this gives you a few ideas and shows you just how easy and fun adventuring in Utah can be!...
