Let’s face it, we don’t all have paid  ( or even unpaid)  vacation days to spend weeks exploring so the weekend is all we have to get our adventuring in. Thankfully we live in a pretty rad place where adventure is just a day-trip away.  I say we reclaim the name ‘Weekend Warrior’ and  start…

Indie Ogden Outdoors: Snowbasin Tubing Hill

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Every winter, when the first big snow covers the ground, we dig out our little sled and bomb as many hills as we can find. Usually the sledding is pretty anticlimactic and after only an hour or so we head home, exhausted from hiking up hills. Even on a perfect day of sledding the little…

Outdoor adventure: Tubing Weber river

untitled-18

We’ve tubed this river many times, but the route we took was probably not the best, as sometimes you have to run across the railroad bridge.  It was scary and definitely not recommended.  Luckily, my husband found a route, which was taken more often, was longer, and much more exciting.  Plus, you didn’t have to…

Affordable Human Powered Water Activity

lifetimekayak

When it’s 100 degrees there’s not much you want to do outside besides head for the water. My son is nine and after years of swimming lessons he’s become a good swimmer. However, we both get bored bobbing around like tea bags in Pineview while listening to the whine of motorboats and watching them whiz…

Mountain biking with baby?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A Controversial Activity! When my husband and I used to mountain bike the Bonneville Shoreline trail with my 1-year-old son strapped on the back, people had two reactions. They’d either say, “Wow, that’s cool!” or they’d frown disapprovingly as if they were about to call the Division of Family Services and report us for child…

Ogden Rock Climber and Local Artist Eric Zschiesche on His Way up to Schoolroom

P1040294

Climbing at Schoolroom is not for the faint of heart. The word schoolroom connotes a place for beginners— a place where one can learn.  Personally,  I would not want to climb my first 5.9 at Schoolroom. The climbs are some what exposed and the bolting does not induce a calm state of mind. Perhaps Schoolroom…
