3 Things to See in Canyonlands’ Island in The Sky District

Canyonlands is another National Park out of Utah's Mighty 5. It is a huuuge park, and it is divided into 3 districts: Island in the Sky, The Maze, and The Needles. During this trip, we were only able to go to Island in the Sky.. Which is good! So I would have a reason to come back and explore the rest. Canyonlands is a place which transforms itself into something more magical during sunrise or sunset.  If you had to…

REVIEW + GIVEAWAY (Closed): Munk Pack

As a person who hikes a lot, I enjoy trying out different snacks which I can bring with me on the trail. Long day-hikes will always make me feel hungry halfway through, so it is very important for me to bring some snacks to keep my energy up. In choosing snacks, I prefer that they are lightweight, healthy, and most importantly, YUMMY.  The people from Munk Pack sent me a couple of their products to try out, so I took them…

Explorer for The Outbound

I was first introduced to The Outbound back in October 2015, and I haven't stopped using it ever since. For those that don't know what it is, The Outbound is a website (also an app!) which lets you search for adventures anywhere in the world. This tool has been very useful for me when I'm planning my outdoor adventure trips, and it is a great place to search for detailed hiking trails, scenic spots, and even camping sites. Today, I am…

VIDEO: Hiking Through Hoodoos in Bryce Canyon

The first park we visited out of Utah's Mighty 5 was Bryce Canyon National Park. We were able to hike along the rim, as well as within the hoodoos.

Capitol Reef National Park’s Natural Rock Arches

With only a day to spare, my husband and I made sure we got to see the two famous natural rock arches in Capitol Reef -- Hickman Bridge & Cassidy Arch I'm actually not surprised that Hickman Bridge is the most famous hike in Capitol Reef. Just an easy 2-mile round trip hike with an elevation gain of 400 feet, and you end up under a 300-foot natural arch. Easy and rewarding hikes are the best! From the parking lot the…

Bryce Canyon National Park: Hike The Hoodoos

Bryce Canyon National Park used to only exist in photographs for me. It was a place I've always dreamed of visiting, and even if I've memorized how it looks from the pictures I have seen, seeing the real version with my own eyes was a completely different experience. Bryce Canyon made me cry. This place surpassed my expectation, and I was very much in awe when I set foot at the rim. There's nothing quite like it, and I can't believe…

Itinerary: Utah’s Mighty Five

Utah is well known for its 5 National Parks, namely Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion. Some people choose to visit all five in 1 trip because each park is relatively close to one another. It actually makes for an epic road trip, if you'd ask me! My husband and I had planned this trip for 6 whole months, and it was kind of a tedious task to pick and choose which campsites to stay in, which parks…

Photo Set: Casey Grimley’s Dancing With The Stars

Prior to our Mighty 5 Trip to Utah, I met this amazing landscape and dance photographer on social media. His name is Casey Grimley, and when I saw his work on Instagram, I instantly knew I had to work with him. If you know me personally, you would know that my first love is dance.  Dancing and exploring the great outdoors serve as my two outlets in life, and having such great passion for both makes me feel like I…
