When Spring arrives here in the Rockies, not much changes.  Well…let me take that back…it snows more.  As the rest of the country begins turning beautiful shades of green, Ullr decides to let loose and dump all the snow on us that we had wished for back in January and February.  Not that I’m complaining, snow now means wildflowers later not to mention less fire danger but come March/April we’re ready for a break from old-man Winter.  Every March we celebrate Spring by heading west and basking in the sun of the vast Utah desert.

This year we relaxed on the shores of Lake Powell then did some exploring around Moab before returning to Colorado.  While we still work whenever we’re on the road, it’s still an awesome opportunity to take a break from the stresses of day to day life and simply enjoy living in the moment and loving life.  Here are a few snapshots from our trip!


Our friends, who’d never been to this area before, took the week off of work to camp with us.  After an 8 hour drive, we arrived to 50mph winds and walls of dirt blowing across the beach.  I panicked that our friends would never forgive us.  Luckily the next morning the wind died and remained calm the rest of the week!


Good friends, good food, beautiful surroundings…life doesn’t get any better!

Our friends Kate & Doug know how few photos we have of us.  Whenever we’re together they always make a point to hijack our camera and put us in front of it.  I love them for that!

That moon.

Roads and rock to explore for days in Moab.

Our last night in Moab before heading home.

Good times!  We headed home with awesome memories and enough sand to recreate a Lake Powell beach in our driveway : )
