Our Favorite Trail Game

You aren’t guaranteed to see wildlife in the national parks and anyone who tells you that you are is misinformed.  What you are guaranteed, however, is plenty of plants.  Trees, shrubs, grasses, and flowers that you don’t normally see in your everyday life.  The beauty of the national parks is that nature is completely untouched, … Continue reading Our Favorite Trail Game

When we (sadly) left the Tetons, we were optimistic about what Idaho had to offer.  However, we weren’t entirely sure what Idaho had to offer.  We had a couple of places on our list, such as seeing the Salmon River, but other than that, we were just going to look at the map and go … Continue reading Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve

How To: Eat Healthy on the Road

Because we travel with the Monkey Barrel, we travel with everything AND the kitchen sink... literally! This helps us to stay (somewhat) on track with our normal, healthy eating routines. Sure, we have plenty of s'mores around the campfire, and there are hot dogs and hamburgers to grill. But there are also plenty of salads, … Continue reading How To: Eat Healthy on the Road
