Winter Solstice

To celebrate the shortest day of the year and mostly to welcome in the now growing daylight hours, my family all humored us by coming over for a backyard bonfire. It too me a half hour just to shovel a walkway through the pile of snow out to our fireplace and another hour to get […]

Last weekend Ben and I were in the middle of a house cleaning frenzy when Colton and Miara stopped by to borrow something. We chatted a while before giving up on our domestic projects, piling into Colton’s SUV, and heading for the nearby bird refuge. The daylight was draining fast toward the west mountains, the […]

For our last trip, we were anxiously arranging gear and making plans nearly six months in advance, so our decision to travel only three weeks before departure has left us in a bit of a whirlwind. Not only have we been scrambling to prepare for a long stint away, but we’ve been madly rushing between […]

Making Plans (Sort Of)

If our first bike tour taught us anything, it was that worrying too much about making plans was taking more mental energy than it was saving. This time, we might be in for a different sort of problem. We haven’t made really any plans at all! So far, we are planning to fly into Athens […]

Although we’ve been resentful of spending so much time so close to home, I can’t deny that there is plenty of benefits being local. Although we lack new landscapes to capture on camera, a brief check through my memory card reminds me how much good stuff has been going on, right here in Utah. While […]

We drove out before sunset, hoping to see some wildlife before it got dark. Although there were plenty of buffalo, deer, and […]

After 50 hours of flying and about three hours of sleep, we hit the office bright and early Monday morning. By Wednesday, we were barely functioning. That afternoon, we were both home hoping to get some sleep. Instead, I was interrupted by our neighbor’s cat that has taken a particular liking to our corner of […]

We woke up Thursday morning to the wind raging outside.  While we have had a few bad run-ins with wind in the past 6 months (one while camping at the confluence of the Green and Colorado river, and the other in Aups, France), and  ever since Bree has been pretty wary of windy weather.  I […]

After waking up today and preparing my lesson for gospel doctrine, Bree and I both got ready for church, brainstorming ideas for our next big adventure.  As we walked out the door, Bree took one look at me and with a big eye roll gave me a “not again”.  Ever since we got married, we […]

We have now been back from Europe longer than we were gone.  When we first arrived at home, we would catch ourselves looking at our blog in order to remind ourselves that we actually did go.  It seriously felt like we had never left.  Now, however, three months later, it seems appropriate and prudent to […]
