The Rockie Route

The Rockie Route

A couple of coffees, a six pack or a bottle of red! This is a long one! I’m blaming it on a lack of sufficient internet… Moab! Favoured destination of the rock crawling 4×4 community along with every other type of powered ATV you can imagine! But this...
Canadá pa’l Norte

Canadá pa’l Norte

For the English version see below Canadá es un país que teníamos muchas ganas de conocer. Sin haber visto demasiadas fotos ya nos imaginábamos cómo podía ser: montañas gigantes, millones de pinos y lagos por doquier. No nos equivocamos. La naturaleza de este gran país...
Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks

Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks

Yellowstone was utter madness. After the relative peace and tranquility of Grand Teton, Yellowstone was like stepping in to nature’s (or the NPS’) version of Disneyland. The Majority of our Yellowstone Experience Don’t get me wrong, the static mixture of vast pine...
Heating Up In The California Desert

Heating Up In The California Desert

While slowly driving towards our happy place in Baja, we hit Mojave National Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park in the Mojave desert of California. You would not want to visit these hot, dry places in the summer – we were even pushing it visiting them at the...
Hiking In The Grand Tetons.

Hiking In The Grand Tetons.

The Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are essentially one. Nestled in the vast surrounding forests of Wyoming, Yellowstone represents the best known and most visited national park in the USA, with most visits to Grand Teton being somewhat of a tag alog. Teton...

USA: California, lo más de lo más

For the English version see below ¿En dónde nos quedamos? Ah sí, en Las Vegas. Pero lo que hicimos ahí ya se los contamos en la nota anterior. Desde Las Vegas nos fuimos de vacaciones por 10 días a Miami. Ya sé lo que están pensando: “¿vacaciones? Pero si ustedes...
My A.T. Playlist

My A.T. Playlist

Heather In case you haven’t noticed we suck at blogging from the trail, let’s just say the app sucks and we are tired at night and we are in the wilderness a lot. Plus we truly do the same thing day in and day out, which is walk in the woods. So here are a...
Things are Hotting Up!

Things are Hotting Up!

I generally avoid answering questions regarding when we will be returning to Australia, as we have no desire to pinpoint an end date and then feel obligated to keep it. Hence a visit from my parents has diverted any feelings of guilt I may have felt regarding time...
Offroad in Moab. Pt2.

Offroad in Moab. Pt2.

Day two of the trail did not turn out quite as I had expected. Waking up when the intense Utah sun blasted over the canyon, we were all in high spirits, even despite the profuse sweating that occurred just as a result of the morning pack up. As planned we continued...

Wild Colorado

Wild Colorado

After our jaunt up Modeno Pass and first real experience getting off road and wild in the Rockies, our appetite for the Great Colorado wilderness was at fever pitch. With our vehicles finally fully functional, we decided to get as wild and remote as we could, and stay...
Snake River Canyon

Snake River Canyon

Today was one of those beautiful days that unfolds effortlessly. I woke up at the cabin with the men of the family. We made hash browns and eggs, saw a bluebird at breakfast, washed the dishes, slowly packed up our things. And then instead of heading back to Boise...
What’s in a Name?

What’s in a Name?

Heather A right of passage when doing a long hike is receiving a trail name. When we started we watched as people scrambled to name each other, wanting to be ‘christened’ moments after arriving on the trail, we tried to avoid it, but there is no escaping...
USA: Arizona, de camino al Gran Canón

USA: Arizona, de camino al Gran Canón

For the English version see below. El cartel dice “Arizona, estado del Gran Cañón” y nos da la bienvenida al estado número cinco en nuestro recorrido. Pero el famoso gigante se hizo esperar. El pronóstico indicaba que iba a llover y nevar los próximos días así que...
Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Part one; Dunes. There is nowhere in the world like this place. Huge cascading dunes rise 750 feet from the valley floor, framed by rolling greenery, mountain streams and all set against the snow-capped peaks of the Rockies. You could be forgiven for thinking that you...
