Every year Kari and I take a weekend away for our anniversary. We usually go alone, but this year the kids came and we decided to hike Mt Nebo. Bit of a grinder up, but beautiful and we basically had the place to ourselves. On the way down we got a couple pics of the […]
Last winter, Kari and I partnered with Mel and Jarrett to purchased a lot near Eagle Point ski resort. It’s a bare half acre in the Tusher mountains covered in trees and accessed by a dirt road. The plan is to eventually build a cabin and have a place to ski and snowmobile away from […]
Tory and Tegan are year round nordic nerds (a Maile term), and they killed it climbing Timp. Not that I was there with them…
This was a three day backpack trip down a portion of Death Hollow. We started in Escalante, went up over the top and dropped into DH. Then went right up the Escalante. Fun, wet trip with Trey and Paula. Lots of poison ivy, but thankfully nobody contracted it. I actually got one little bump or […]

I don’t know if I had to work or what, but Kari and the kids headed down Sundance way for a weekend near Mt. Timpanogos all by themselves. It looks like they had a ton of fun hiking, exploring, and even spelunking a bit. I’ll try to caption these the best I can.
