Our Road Trip Recap

Here is a quick recap of our road trip with two of our best friends from Chicago. We were all over the map and had the best time.one

Our road trip started in Arizona, visiting our old roommate in Tucson on Thursday of last week. Then the next morning we picked up our friends Melissa and Nico at the Phoenix airport. Then we grocery shopped at Trader Joe’s and then hit the road for the Grand Canyon. We camped there overnight.




The next morning, we took off for a tour of Antelope Canyon.



We stopped at Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona after lunch.



Then we drove to Zion National Park, and did our usual jumping pose. 😉



We spent 2 days in Zion National Park. We went hiking and camping and my brother and his fiancé joined us too.


It was a dream road trip and I’ll fill you all in with more details asap! Happy weekend everyone!

As always I’m linking up with these lovelies:

Travel Thursdays: Horse Shoe Bend, Arizona

July of 2014, we had a wedding to attend in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our good friends Ryan and Casey were planning to visit us in California, so we thought it’d be fun to do a road trip with them and hike the Narrows in Zion National Park.

They flew into Albuquerque and met us. The Sunday after the wedding we took off for Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona. I’d see pictures of it on Pinterest and wanted to incorporate it into our road trip. Luckily it was close to Zion.

rtIt was really epic and beautiful in person. It was also super hot that day on our little hike down there from the parking lot.

jNext Thursday I’ll share the Zion part of our trip with the amazing Narrows hike.
