Utah’s Hidden Gem: San Rafael Swell

San Rafael is one of my favorite places in Utah and it’s always empty! There are 2 main slot canyons: Little Wild Horse and Bell. You can do a loop through both of them or a point-to-point in one. This past trip, we went about 1 mile down Little Wild Horse. We camped at the…

Ice Lakes & Telluride, Colorado

On our way up to Utah from Austin, we hiked up to Ice Lakes and took a very scenic route through Ouray to Telluride. Telluride is fun because it’s an adorable little mountain town with a great recreation area with a running path that goes through the town. There’s also a gondola that’s free from…

Bryce Canyon Trip

Bryce is one of the most underrated of the 5 Utah National Parks! It’s shockingly beautiful and the hiking trails are amazing. We stayed at Cabin Hollow Campground in Red Canyon. There’s a fire ring and paved bike trail along the main road that goes from Red Canyon to Bryce Canyon NP. + it’s free!…

My New Obsession: Santa Fe

We spent a few days in Santa Fe on our way up from Austin to Utah. I have family in Santa Fe so we got to hang out and go on hikes, eat at cool places etc. It was SO fun and we really loved spending time with them, and their adorable dogs :). Pictures…

Stargazing at Enchanted Rock

On the 23rd of September all the planets aligned for the first time since 50-something BCE so we went to Enchanted rock to stargaze with friends in our Airstream :). The sky was completely clear and we could see the milky way across the entire sky; it was pretty incredible! Cameron took these photos!! They’re…

Magical Hike: Timpanogus

Skiing at Deer Valley

This past winter, we worked at Stein Eriksen Residences and were lucky enough to get a few free lift tickets per week :). AND it was an amazing snow year for Utah so we had a blaaast. I hadn’t downhill skied (mainly cross country growing up) and so I got a lot of falls in…

Photo Post of Denver, Colorado

Denver is a really cool city and fun to walk around in-I always find something new each time I go. This year was my 5th year at the SIA Snow Show working for Toko-Ski wax and tools. Here are some pictures from the last time we went-   Restaurant: Little India   SIA Snow Show-Toko…

Trip to Cabo San Lucas for Neverland Swim Wear

      Brooke and I started a swim line called Neverland and took a trip to Cabo to shoot our suits. Check out the site to see our line: neverlandco.net. They’re comfortable and fit well under clothing without any ties or clasps. Their minimalist design makes them the perfect classic adventure suit!   For…

Local’s Guide to Salt Lake City

This Winter, we lived in Salt Lake City for 4 months. I was blown away by how much I love Salt Lake and how many cool hidden places we found. So of course I made a few lists. My friend Riley and I made an “Ultimate Salt Lake City” google doc and added to it…

Layover: What to see during your layover in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is hands-down one of my favorite cities ever. Even though I’ve only been there during a couple layovers, it’s one of the top cities on my list to spend more time exploring in. There’s so many adorable stores and buildings, people are friendly, it’s super walk-able and just all-around an amazing city. The airport…

Workaway vs. WWOOF

This past year we’ve used Workaway and WWOOF. They are both amazing organizations with great concepts, but there are a few differences to consider when choosing which to use.   WWOOF: Willing Workers on Organic Farms is definitely more geared towards people who want to work with their hands and experience organic farming. While a lot of…

Wine&Fine: Castle Chillon & Lavaux Vineyards

Swiss wine is by far my favorite. In fact, it’s so good that they finish it all and don’t even export any of it. The Lavaux vineyard terraces overlooking Lac Leman have been protected by UNESCO since 2007. Cassidy and I went on a really inverted and foggy day and mostly everything was dead that…

3 Gorgeous Hikes in the French-Speaking Part of Switzerland

Although the Bernese part of the Swiss Alps is the most famous, the French speaking part has a lot of hidden gems. Here are a few of my favorite hikes in the Lausanne/Montreaux area: 1-Dent de Vaulion Near Romainmotier and the Joux Valley, this hike gives you a beautiful view overlooking Lac Leman (Lake Geneva)…

Day Trip from Lausanne: Romainmotier & Dent De Vaulion

On the French-Swiss border, there’s an ADORABLE old town and not far from it there’s a mountain, Dent de Vaulion, where you can see Lac Leman and the alps from the top! The trip is only about an hour drive from Lausanne and is definitely worth visiting if you’re in the area. (see 5 things…

Cheese Factory tour

One of my favorite parts of our trip was learning about how all the delicious cheese we were eating was actually made! Renaud brought us to his friend who is studying cheese making. The cheese shop in St. Cierges makes Gruyere and their own specialty, Le Brigand Du Jorat! The process of making Gruyere was a…

European Christmas Markets

Christmas markets are crowded, expensive, and yet absolutely MAGICAL. And let’s face it, food is probably the best part so here were my favorites: -Vin Chaud/Gluehwein (Mulled Wine-Hot wine with spices) -Warm Candied Almonds -Roasted Chestnuts -Chocolate, of course!-they even had random objects made out of chocolate, like scissors. The little stands are made out of…

Hiking in the Enchanting-Jaunbach Gorge

If you’re near the Gruyere Village or Cailler chocolate factory, it’s definitely worth a trip to the Jaunbach gorge. We did a portion of this trail– it started from Bulle to the Lac de Montsainens. It goes through little tunnels and next to a very bright, colorful river. At the very end, you go up…
