Sometimes an Island

Sometimes an Island

  Sometimes Island: named such because sometimes it’s an island and sometimes, when the tide is out, it’s not. It’s located on the remote island of Kodiak, Alaska. Several years ago, my husband and I decided to explore it one afternoon when it wasn’t an […]

Dinosaur Stomping Ground

Dinosaur Stomping Ground

  The Dinosaur Stomping Ground Trail north of Moab is a nice hike and the destination is really interesting. It’s a huge area of sand stone crisscrossed everywhere with dinosaur footprints. I think most of the tracks were about the size as the one in […]

Hidden Valley Trail

Hidden Valley Trail

  Hidden Valley is a hike I’ve hiked countless times. So many times, that I usually don’t take my camera anymore. These photos are from two hikes I took last winter. I just loved the look of the dead tree next to the trail and […]

In Line

In Line

  This was taken somewhere in the Gemini Bridges vicinity outside Moab. It’s a nice little view of some yucca plants all lined up in front of the La Sal mountains and the Behind the Rocks area.

Poison Spider Dinosaur Track Trail

Poison Spider Dinosaur Track Trail

  I always just thought of this trail as the Poison Spider Dinosaur Track Trail because it starts at the Dinosaur Tracks in the Poison Spider Jeep Trail parking lot. It’s actually called the Longbow Trail, named for Longbow Arch at the end. The dinosaur […]

The Wastelands

The Wastelands

  As the title would suggest, this post is about what I like to refer to as the wastelands. While there are some really beautiful and unique areas in and around Moab, the vast majority of the area is wastelands. Nothing really grows there or […]

Sledding in Moab

Sledding in Moab

  Moab isn’t really a great sledding area, but we try. We got around 8 inches of snow before Christmas so we made the most of it before it melted. The pup Whiskey was thrilled with the snow once he realized it wasn’t going to […]

Rim Sunset

Rim Sunset

  Happy New Year! It finally looks like winter. Yay! We got around 8 inches of snow a few days before Christmas and enjoyed every minute of it. This photo is of the sunset on Christmas from the Rim Trail courtesy my husband. He had […]

Russian Orthodox Churches in Kodiak

Russian Orthodox Churches in Kodiak

  Merry Christmas! All of the presents have been opened and it has finally calmed down. Here are some old photos from the Kodiak days. The two most beautiful buildings in downtown Kodiak, Alaska are the two Russian Orthodox churches. The town itself is a […]

Snowy Dead Plants

Snowy Dead Plants

  There still isn’t any snow here in Southeastern Utah. Not even on the mountains. I’m afraid if this keeps up, next year is going to be rough. Aside from the cold here and there, it doesn’t even feel like winter. To make it feel […]

Cornona Arch in Winter

Cornona Arch in Winter

  These photos are from a Corona Arch hike my husband and I took last January. It’s just barely cooled down this week and there hasn’t been any hint of snow yet, but I really wanted to post some more timely looking photos of the […]

Arches Primitive Trail in Devil’s Garden

Arches Primitive Trail in Devil’s Garden

  Hiking in Arches National Park on the trail to Landscape Arch and beyond to Double O Arch and the Primitive Trail in Devil’s Garden. The first part of the trail is very, very obvious and there is a continuous stream of people coming and […]
