My whole life I have loved the forest. The trees beacon me and call my name. My feet feel at home on a trail and know the way. I can breathe. All my worries disappear.Mountains and Nature’s sheer beauty dwarf my woes. The trees are a canopy, filtering out the bullshit of the world. I am at peace. Completely bliss-filled and content. It is impossible for me to be unhappy when I am in the woods.

This page I dedicate to travel and nature. I will share with you my adventures. The tools I’ve learned. Advice on where to go. What to see. Where to stay. As I travel around the country soaking up our National Parks system.  I am so unbelievably blessed to have a boy-scout adventure-seeking husband, Zach. You will see him here. Last summer we took a two week trip which took us across 9 states, to 10 National Parks and over 4500 miles. It is when he proposed to me. And it was one of the best experiences of myself, the joy of finding my partner, because I had done a lot of traveling and exploring solo. But he makes it complete. The whole trip was a bliss, beauty-filled bubble. Here are my thoughts on that:

This summer we have planned a big trip.  So stay tuned as I spill on them. Tips on food and eating on the road. Planning. My favorite sites. Where we stayed and more.

Until then, here are some pictures from previous trips:
