South Valley Park

Share the Adventure:

We’ve really enjoyed going to South Valley Park the couple times we’ve been there so far. It is set in the gorgeous Ken Caryl valley. It is an incredibly scenic park with views of the foothills, craggy cliffsides, and dramatic red outcroppings. It is so pretty I think we’ll find ourselves going back there again….

Grand Canyon National Park, AZ

Share the Adventure:

OH the Grand Canyon!!! How magnificent! How gorgeous! Driving up to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, even once inside of the park, you would have no idea that the canyon lay ahead, not until you are walking up to it, only steps away, and the trees clear and you are suddenly at the…

Redwoods National Park

Share the Adventure:

Colchuck Lake Hike

Share the Adventure:

We hadn’t heard of this hike until my sister’s husband mentioned it during our stay in Spokane.  We had every intention of doing some hiking while in the Leavenworth area, but we didn’t think we’d know of any awesome hikes until we arrived in the area and maybe checked with the local National Forest ranger…
