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.

10 Ogden Outdoor Activities I Really Need to Get Into

My family and I love Ogden so much that we’ve moved here twice. Twice! We came here in 2013, left in 2015 for a seriously brilliant job opp in Phoenix, and then fast realized that we just couldn’t stay away. So we were back within 6 months. We love Ogden!!! I’m a transplant from Chicago, and in Chicago, you don’t do a lot of exploring the outdoors (unless you count tailgating a Bears game in sub zero weather). But my husband and kids...

Top 10 Day Trips From Ogden

It’s no secret I love Ogden. My free time is always full with all the fun family-friendly activities going on in our city. We have everything here: art galleries, restaurants, theatres, hiking trails, parks, live music…the list goes on. However, as much as I love it, sometimes I just need to get out of town. My kids and I love pulling out a map and planning an adventure. You don’t need a lot of time or money to enjoy a fun trip out of...

How To Ski & Snowboard On The Cheap

  We live in Utah, the greatest snow on earth and if you don’t play in it, you will either hate winter or miss out on a ton of fun, probably both. Winter sports can be pretty expensive and unless you are a dedicated skier or snowboarder, you probably don’t want to invest thousands of dollars to get in on the fun.   Thankfully, we asked some locals for tips and came up with these 5 ways you can save some dough this...
