Hey adventurers! I am still working on my Alaska entry, but in the meantime I am excited to introduce the new “thing” I alluded to a while back! The Sidekick and I have started a brand new Facebook Group: Bark Rangers of the U.S. National Parks. What you’ll want to do is click on thatContinue reading “Bark Ranger Happenings!”

Yesterday’s Alaskan Adventure!

So yesterday’s adventure took us from Seward, eventually back to Anchorage. Here’s a little sample of what happened! Today’s adventure takes me on a bush plane to Lake Clark National Park. I’ll hopefully have an update tomorrow! The three above were all along the Byron Glacier Trail. The glacier is actually above my head andContinue reading “Yesterday’s Alaskan Adventure!”

Yesterday’s Alaskan adventures!

Hey there adventurers! Yesterday I took a day cruise from Seward to see a Kenai Fjords glacier up close! Along the way we saw humpbacks, orcas, seals, bald eagles, and sea otters. More of that later, but I thought I’d share a few pictures, including some good ones I got from the drive along theContinue reading “Yesterday’s Alaskan adventures!”

On my way!

This is my first time flying Alaska airlines and the first leg was pretty good! I feel extremely humbled and blessed to no longer call my Alaska trip “my Alaska trip” anymore! Anyway, I snagged this picture of Mt. Rainier from the plane. Usually those pictures don’t turn out so well but I think thisContinue reading “On my way!”

Arches National Park, UT. Somehow, part 2. May 2022.

National Park Count: 29 Somehow…part 2! Hey there adventurers! To clarify the subtitle…you can read part 1, specific to my visit to Canyonlands, or…you can just read the next couple sentences! Long story, short, I had some travel ado, slept on an airport floor, arrived late to Utah with next to no sleep, and beganContinue reading “Arches National Park, UT. Somehow, part 2. May 2022.”

Canyonlands National Park, UT. Somehow, Part 1. April/May 2022

National Park Count: 28 Somehow. Greetings fellow adventurers! Well, my whirlwind travel habits nearly derailed me this time! Thankfully I was able to wrestle a positive experience out of the jaws of disappointment. There was little downtime, little sleeping, and much exhaustion, but I managed to have a pretty satisfying experience of Canyonlands and Arches!Continue reading “Canyonlands National Park, UT.

And the winning destination of my Utah trip…..Arches and Canyonlands!

Greetings fellow Adventurers! I dilly dallied and struggled mightily with my destination this weekend. I was thinking Great Basin but it’s still cold! And, part of the big drive there is still closed for the season. Then, I was convinced to do Capitol Reef. But the cost of lodging and everyone saying they wished theyContinue reading “And the winning destination of my Utah trip…..Arches and Canyonlands!”

Mid-Spring Update! Utah Recs?And calling all Bark Rangers!

Hello fellow Adventurers! Happy National Pet’s Day, which just so happens to be the Bark Ranger’s Gotcha Day! I saved my Bella Brown from a kill shelter 11 years ago! She’s still going strong, too! So the last 2 months have been a bit quiet. I have only done some local Florida traveling in MarchContinue reading “Mid-Spring Update! Utah Recs?And calling all Bark Rangers!”
