Utah Adventuring: The Narrows in Zion National Park

Utah Adventuring: The Narrows in Zion National Park

In the fall of 2015 we had a last minute change for our vacation destination because of a large fire in California. This change led us to Utah for a day at Zion National Park. We did some exploring of the park and discovered “The Narrows”. I thought the hike looked fun, but we were not prepared. I told my hubby that this is going on my bucket list, and I wanted to complete it before I was 60.

Minnesota Adventuring: Picnic and Canoeing

Minnesota Adventuring: Picnic and Canoeing

July is National Picnic Month which celebrates the history of this activity and the way it has been used to bring families, friends, communities, and countries together. To celebrate this we decided to take a day to go canoeing on the Mississippi River and stop somewhere along the way to have a picnic lunch. After all, the definition of picnic is an excursion at which a meal is eaten outdoors, ideally taking place in a scenic landscape such as a park, beside a lake or with an interesting view. So off we go on our adventure.
