The Maroon Bells
Trip to Montana? Nawh! I'll do you one better! The Colorado Maroon Bells! Sit down. Take a deep breath. I'll tell a story... Once upon a time, in a land far far away. There were four men looking to roam the mountains on the 4th of July weekend. Months in advance, the date was saved for this adventure. The destination, Glacier National Park. It was a place where grizzlies, wolves, moose (meese <- plural of moose) and all kind of big game animals roamed freely.

Zion - Conquered
Arrived at the trailhead, we eagerly jumped out of the shuttle to start our adventure. Meanwhile we were doing our last gear check, a couple next to us (the only other people that rode with us to the trailhead on the shuttle) started talking and got into a small conversation. The only memorable thing about our little chat was when the gal said “… we don’t plan for our trips, that way, we would never be disappointed.

We Came. We Saw. We Conquered.
Lets pick up where we left off eh? Moab. The one place where boys go to become men.. and girls to become boys. After weeks of planning to spend a few days after Christmas in The Maze District in Canyonlands National Park, we realized that we needed a back up plan. In this desolate place, the weather could be our friends, or it could be our enemy. For a good week before heading out, our eyes were glued on the weather forecast.
