Visitors and Views

We have had a fun couple of weeks here in the Moab area. First off our daughter Kendra and her friend Derian drove down from Fargo, ND. for a visit. We took them on some hikes and also to Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park.

At Arches

We took them on the Moab Rim hike and the hike to Delicate Arch. Then the weather turned sour on us and so we just kind of hung out for a couple of days while it rained and rained. So after there visit Lisa and I did the hike to the Hidden Valley. That was pretty amazing and very strenuous.

Then Lisa's sister Heidi and her son Nyle drove over to visit.

So we did a few more hike. The portal overlook which has a great view of Moab  and also to the fantastic hike at Fisher Tower. That would have to be my favorite so far. It is unbelievable  how the scenery changes just a few miles away from Moab.

Heidi and Nyle stayed 2 days and then headed back home to Steamboat Springs. Then the rains hit us again so we have been inside catching up on other things. Good news though, We applied for a job at Amozon and we got it. That will start in September and shall be quite challenging in its own right.

So that is our life for the last 2 weeks. Lot's of hiking and visiting with family. Evan though our time with people may be short, the quality of the visits is much better.

Till the next adventure.


  1. Congrats on your Amazon jobs! It is getting visitors and showing them around is always fun, it is great to see their excitement when you show them some of the local sights for the first time.

    I like a few rain days now and then to get caught up on in door stuff but it sounds like you guys have had more than your fair share. Especially given the fact you had visitors at the time.

  2. Thanks. Lisa is trying to get our year figured out. I just go where she tells me too.

    1. Careful, it could get damn hot some of the places she tells you to go!
