Mount Superior // Little Cottonwood Canyon

The summer of 2017 has been great! I’ve been able to check a lot of the big hikes in the area off of my bucket list. Sometimes, I am so involved in training for running races, or getting out on my bike every free second that it’s hard to get out to hike and explore more trails around the area. Hiking is special, it takes … Continue reading Mount Superior // Little Cottonwood Canyon

Gilpin Lake // Mount Zirkel Wilderness

Like many 18-year-olds, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do when I graduated from high-school. I wasn’t ready to pack up and move away to college, I didn’t know what I wanted to study and I didn’t know where I wanted to go. I took my first semester of college off and stayed in Burlington, Vermont, where my parents lived and where I graduated … Continue reading Gilpin Lake // Mount Zirkel Wilderness

Hiking Pfeifferhorn // Lone Peak Wilderness

I am so thankful for friends that motivate me to get out and get hiking! This weekend my friend Jean asked if I wanted to go for a Sunday hike. We decided to leave the dogs behind and summit the Pffeiferhorn which is in Little Cottonwood Canyon, a watershed that doesn’t allow dogs.

My seven girlfriends and I made the trek into the Twin Peaks Wilderness area of the Wasatch Forest for a ladies night at … Continue reading Backpacking Lake Blanche // Ladies night

When people ask me why I started a blog in the first place, here are my most common answers: I … Continue reading 5 Reasons to Blog About Life + Adventure

One question has really been bothering me lately: when did protecting our environment for future generations become a partisan issue?

Vertigo // Mountain Biking in Draper

I had a 5 day waiting period before moving into our new house, so went to stay with my boyfriend’s cousins in Draper, UT. They live just up the road from Corner Canyon, a system of mountain biking trails, so we’ve ridden Ann’s and Rush several times this year. Ann’s is an awesome, mellow trail that flows around the mountain from the Potato Hill Trailhead, … Continue reading Vertigo // Mountain Biking in Draper
