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...
Holy Smokies

Holy Smokies

Dan Week three of the trail saw us entering the Smokey Mountain National Park. Laden down with our expensive Fontana Dam resupply our plan was to make it through the park in a single shot rather than get off the trail in Gatlinburg to resupply again. So with heavy...
The Truth is Out There Scully!!!

The Truth is Out There Scully!!!

Firstly, I always re-read my previous post before beginning the next in an effort to ensure some form of flow and continuity! Having done this, I felt it came across with an air of negativity toward our time in the US to date – polar opposite from the reality of...

I’m all shook up – # 2

I’m all shook up – # 2

Now some of you may have noticed that we had already uploaded this post about two weeks ago and some were even kind enough to make comments.  However, due to the magic of the internet (which has been less than consistent in its coverage despite the most expensive data...

Impressions of the USA so far.

Firstly, it is stunning here. Virginia especially has blown us away and it is the first state we have travelled in extensively. The national parks and forests are huge, beautiful, massively untouched and are a paradise for overland and adventure travellers alike. The...
Down But Not Out in Franklin

Down But Not Out in Franklin

Heather So things started off quite well (after the first night on the trail at least) and then took a rather spectacular turn for the worse. It all started with the trail magic at Unicoi Gap. My spidy senses tingled a little after picking up my trekking poles which I...

First Days; Washington

First Days; Washington

I always knew that arriving here would be bittersweet. The goodbyes were a lot harder to say than I had hoped and the departure more abrupt than I had previously been used too. While previously we have left directly from our home, and slowly pulled away from the...
