Canyonlands

It's getting hard to find an Internet connection out here in the wilderness! We promise that we'll still try to update whenever we get a chance.

Tuesday night, we stayed in Canyonlands National Park at the Squaw Flat campground. (Thanks for the suggestion, MB!) The site was full, but we just parked at the trailhead thinking that since we are completely self contained in the van, we are not using any park resources and that would be OK. In the morning, however, we got a visit from a park ranger who scolded us. Her logic on why why shouldn't have parked there wasn't very sound, but she had a Taser so we coughed up the $15 camp fee and went on our way. Lesson learned.



Video Link

Wednesday night we stayed in Fishlake National Forest. I have a video from the location where we stayed, but you're going to have to wait for it. The video upload keeps failing and we have much to see! Today we are headed through Capitol Reef NP and then on down to Bryce NP.

  2. Disappointing that you had 4 ft. of snow and 15 degree weather at the N.P. M.B. and girls are coming for a short visit Fri./Sat. Then they're off to Hendersonville on Sunday for a few days. The Canyonlands video was BEAUTIFUL.
    Warm hugs - O O O O!!!

  3. @mb - Route 12 was very cool! We managed to stay on the road, too.

    @Mom and Dad - Thanks for the hugs. They helped - - and so did the hotel room. :)

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
