4/59 – Capitol Reef National Park | 09.25.16

Ah, Capitol Reef. ❤ We’ve passed through Capitol Reef several times (many times, for me) since our first visit, but only stopped once very briefly to shamelessly collect a stamp at the Visitor Center and continue on our way. Yes, we are blasphemers, but I justify it by saying that on our first visit together…

19/59 – Canyonlands National Park | 09.25.16

I’ll admit it. We definitely shortchanged Canyonlands on this trip. So much of what’s amazing about this park is in the backcountry, the wilderness, the “inaccessible.” And we didn’t have a lot of time for any sort of backcountry excursions here this time around, but I needed to go there. I hadn’t personally been to…

18/59 – Arches National Park | 09.24.16

Yes. We live in Utah and it took us 5 years to visit Arches together. I am beyond ashamed. I’ll admit, though, that part of the reason behind that is because as beautiful as Arches is, it’s just too crowded. Too crowded, she says?! Yeah. I know. Sounds a little silly coming from She-Who-Loves-Zion-Best-Of-All (almost), but…

2/59 – Zion National Park | 9.17-18.16

Three and a half years later and we FINALLY made it back to Zion together! My soul can feel less sad now. We arrived pretty late on Saturday night, and first order of business on the list was a night shoot at the Canyon Overlook Trail (which we almost bagged because it was so late,…

14/59 – Bryce Canyon National Park | 09.17.16

Okay, I’ll admit it. This park was the height of my shame for this trip. I had grand plans to spend more than half a day here (around 6 hours) doing multiple hikes and soaking in as much of the grandeur that this park has to offer as possible… and then we got on the…

4/59 – Capitol Reef National Park | 04.18.14

Ahhhh, Capitol Reef. My most beloved of beloveds. This trip was actually the first time I had been since I was pretty young, and as we drove into the park (which is honestly the best part in my opinion, there are not many views in the world as beautiful as driving east into the Reef…

2/59 – Zion National Park | 03.12-14.13

Our early years of dating honestly didn’t consist of much national park attendance. I know it’s really sad, but it’s life. We made a lot of excuses, but mostly we both just worked a lot, and Brady was in school, and we were crazy poor. We also didn’t really have a ton of ‘communal’ gear….
