For UEA this year we decided to spend time in North Wash on a Canyoneering adventure. Prepping for the trip we discussed getting the kids to step it up a notch by attempting harder canyons. And having them repel on their own. They weren’t too psyched about that leading up to the trip, but I […]
Even though she’s 8 now Tegan still has cute ways of saying things. She’s getting into cross country skiing this year in a program called Kickers and Gliders. They aren’t learning to skate ski yet, but I’m pretty sure that’s coming!
Every summer we try to get out for an overnighter with the kids somewhere. Usually it’s been in the Uintas for one night. Pack it all into a couple of backpacks, and get the kids to hike in. Years ago this was quite a feat, but lately it’s not so tough. They love to hike […]
Yet Another Ruby Horsethief Trip. Being late August, this trip was much mellower than the earlier June Ruby trip. Which was a good thing, except we did it in two nights instead of three. We were nearly forced out of our Blackrocks 7 camp in the middle of the night… Kari woke around midnight to […]
After failing to get on the river at Flaming Gorge earlier this spring, we gave it another go – this time with the Marsh’s. We spent two days on the river, camping just below the Little Hole boat ramp. We arrived the night before and camped at the Canyon Rim campground and secured the site […]
Kari and the kids headed up to the Unitas for a night of car camping with Babbie Tai and Aspen. The next morning Julie and Luke showed up to hike and hang. I wasn’t there but it looks like it was a bunch of fun!
We’ve done the Ruby Horsthief stretch before, and we’ll do it again for sure… It’s an easy class II float that is great for the kids, and our current skill set. This trip was a bit different as we booked it at high flow without really realizing it. This made us a bit nervous about […]
We were pretty excited to get the new boat out for the first time on a float down the Green River below the Flaming Gorge dam. Unfortunately we were rained out instead. Still, we had a nice time camping with friends and commiserating with each other in the rain!
After renting and borrowing rafts the last few years, we decided to plunge in and get our very own. The kids were there as I unboxed and inflated it for the first time. We still need to name her, so if you have any ideas…
We do this one every year, and sometimes twice! North Wash is a great place to take kids canyoneering – easy access and a wide range of difficulty levels. Got most of the kids down East Leprechaun this year and they all loved it! We also went through Blushing Bride canyon for the first time. […]
