2 Days in Zion National Park: Day one – Subway Bottom Up Day Hike


The first 3 days of our Vegas to Denver road trip were spent in Zion National Park.  And when I say 3, I really mean 2.  Because day one was eaten up by the logistics of picking up the campervan, loading up on supplies, and the drive from Las Vegas. We arrived at Watchman Campground (where we were lucky enough…

Escape Campervan Review


It’s no secret that we have a bit of a “thing” for camper vans.  And by thing I mean total obsession with the damn things.  Snapping shots of them wherever we go.  Spending way too much time longingly looking at ebay, craigslist, Pinterest, Instagram…. you name it, we will find the van of our dreams on it.
