Banff Village is a cheery mountain town in Banff National Park, where you can grab a meal, stay in an upscale hotel, or, like us, find adventure. We camped in Banff Village on our trip to Canada last fall and wandering around town was almost as good as exploring the rest of the park!
I received some complimentary services mentioned in this post in exchange for my honest review. I loved this place for real.
A couple weekends ago, I headed south to one of my favorite places on this earth: Zion National Park! And not only that, but I was invited to stay at Zion Ponderosa Ranch, one of the most fun, unique resorts I have ever been to.
I’ve been on some amazing hikes in my life so far, so it takes a lot for a new hike to make it on my favorites list – but Grinnell Glacier did it. This was one of the most incredible (and terrifying, if I’m being honest) adventures I’ve ever been on. Incredible because of the views, terrifying because of the bears I was convinced were around every corner. You know, just your average Friday.
A few weeks ago, I finally made it to Capitol Reef for the first time! It’s the least well-known park in Utah, but it’s just as amazing as any of the others. My friend Melissa (pictured in most of my photos) and I only got to spend a day there, but I can’t wait to go back and explore some more! One of the most popular hikes in the park is Hickman Bridge, so it was the perfect spot to check out for a first timer.
I spent the past weekend on (yet another) getaway to Zion National Park and as always, it was magical. Originally, it was supposed to be a trip to run the Snow Canyon half marathon in St. George, but due to all the traveling I ended up doing at the end of the summer, I didn’t have time to train properly so I called off that plan and turned it into a Zion National Park in the fall + a secret waterfall trip. Plus, we ended up hiking upwards of ten miles anyway, so it was basically the same thing as running, right?
