One of my favorite places in Alaska is Denali State Park. It’s closer to Anchorage than Denali National Park, is free to enter, and is easier to access by car. Plus the views of Denali are still amazing! I’ve backpacked Kesugi Ridge and stayed in a public use cabin at Byers Lake, but my favorite … More A “Spring” Getaway in Denali State Park
I feel like I’ve owned 100 carriers in the short time since E was born. It’s hard not to want to try everything that’s out there (and there are sooooo many different types of carriers out there!), especially when you aren’t comfortable wearing your child in the one that you have. I’ve tried lots of … More Hiking Kid Carrier Review: Osprey Poco AG vs. Deuter Kid Comfort Active SL
One of my favorite things to do year round in Alaska is to stay at the state park and national forest public use cabins! They’re a great way to get out of the house for a quick trip when I have cabin fever in the winter, and in the summer they are a great place … More Happy Camper Review: Matanuska Glacier Cabin
If there’s one thing that sets Alaska apart from the Lower 48 (aside from having the tallest mountain in North America, crazy sun patterns, and cold/snowy weather) it’s the fact that we still have a lot of glaciers up here. Glaciers are one of my favorite things to visit! Some glaciers can only be accessed … More Matanuska Glacier Winter Tour
Hey everyone! I know that one year ago I decided to return to blogging after a one year break (between pregnancy and the newborn stage I was pretty busy!) and then after an exciting rebrand I disappeared again (because of COVID, toddler life, etc.). But I think I want to try to get back into … More It’s Been Another Wild Year!
When I found out I was pregnant I was crazy excited, even though I knew that pregnancy was going to be a long, tough process for my body. I vowed to myself that I would try my hardest to keep my life as normal as possible throughout my pregnancy and try to stay as active … More Baby On Board: How to Keep Hiking When You’re Pregnant
Hey everyone! You might notice some changes around here, and that’s because I’ve got a new blog name! Now that I’m getting back into blogging I’ve decided I want to highlight my new identity as a mom in the mountains and rebrand this blog. I’m really excited about this! Being a hiker and outdoorsy woman … More The New Me
Before reading this post, catch up on part one of our crazy snowy trip to Sedona and the Grand Canyon during a blizzard here! We woke up on our last full day in Arizona ready to spend even more time staring at the Grand Canyon. But it was an overcast and freezing day, and we … More One Day in Page, AZ
Last winter, deep in the midst of my constant “morning” (AKA all day) sickness, I was getting the same question over and over again: “Are you ready to have a baby? Have you done everything you wanted to do?”. Which is kind of a silly question, because life doesn’t end the moment you have a … More Our Crazy Snowy Trip to Arizona
Hi everyone! I can’t even believe this, but somehow an entire year has passed since my last blog post! And I’ve missed blogging so much! Although I didn’t exactly have a ton of time for it, since I was kinda busy dealing with something else… For most of 2019 I was pregnant! If you ready … More It’s Been A Wild Year!
