a gloomy day at #CapitolReef a few weeks ago while I waited for a park ranger to open my car after I locked my keys in the trunk 🙃 .

Now this is how you do Black Friday. You just forget all the nonsense, drive away from all the crowds, and explore the amazing selenite (gypsum) mound called Glass Mountain located in the Cathedral Valley of Capitol Reef National Park.

The best part about today? We lost cell phone service. The second best part about today? I totally forgot it was Black Friday until I got back into cell phone range.

Another day, another adventure. What will be your adventure today?

-The Golden Hour-




The Temple of the Sun really lived up to its name at sunrise. It was pretty cool to get an “alpenglow” in the desert. Sometimes I wish I had a time machine or a degree in geology so I knew exactly how nature formed things. These two sandstone temples are easily over 100 feet high just rising out of the Earth in the middle of nowhere. Probably whittled away from bigger rock over millions of years by wind, sand and rain. Our time is so precious and short in the grand scheme of things, and sometimes that’s hard to fathom, so let your happy moments outweigh the negatives because we never know how many we are going to get. •

Kent's first road trip in the #mr2

Here's a place I'd never even heard of before we got there, but it was quite a sight to take in.
Turns out it had quite some history. A few spots had ancient wall carvings, and ruins of more recent Mormon settlers still stand along the road. Most importantly though, the rock formations were great.

I’m grateful for the great outdoors. See what I did there?

Georgetta hit 100,000 miles in the desert and it was pretty rad— @utahisrad
