Afternoon on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail

Afternoon on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail

The day after we came back from Spain we both had to work in the morning. The weather was so nice outside though so we both wanted to get outside. Since the inversion was minimal we just wanted to head up to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail overlooking the city. It’s not really a “hike” but more of a nice walk with a great view. The actual trail itself is about 100 miles long, but we just did the part starting…

Adventures in Spain – Part Two – Barcelona

Adventures in Spain – Part Two – Barcelona

The second leg of our trip to Spain was a visit to Barcelona. Barcelona is an amazing city. We were thoroughly impressed. In my opinion, the two most incredible things to do in Barcelona were the Sagrada Familia and The Palau de la Música Catalana. You will see many pictures of both here. I also really enjoyed the cable car ride from Barceloneta to Montjuïc as it showcased an incredible view of the city. As a side note, the first leg…

Adventures in Spain – Part One – Mallorca

Adventures in Spain – Part One – Mallorca

If you have read any of the recent posts, you know that we have really been looking forward to our trip to Spain. We snagged some awesome flight deals from Delta and got roundtrip tickets for < $500. We decided we wanted to not spend too much time traveling around and so we split the trip between just two places, Mallorca and Barcelona (read all about the Barcelona here). We had a slight hiccup on the way out with an…

Does it get any better than this?

Does it get any better than this?

Now that I can comfortably maneuver blues while skiing, I can go almost anywhere on the resort. At Snowbasin they have another area that I hadn’t been to yet. This is the area right outside the Strawberry gondola. As soon as you get off there is an INCREDIBLE view of the valley. Ignore the fact that it’s inversion, because it’s still pretty.     We also took some additional pictures on the way down. You would have had no idea…

Night Skiing Adventures

Night Skiing Adventures

Austin got home a little later than we were anticipating from rotation so we decided not to go up to Solitude for during the day skiing as we originally intended. Instead we decided to go night skiing up at Brighton. I had never been night skiing or up to Brighton before so it was a real treat. I am feeling so much more confident on my skis which is really exciting to me.   We took some pictures before it…

Mastering the Blues

Mastering the Blues

The one thing everyone knows about Utah is that it has some awesome skiing. To be honest, before moving here I hadn’t heard of all of the cool national parks and non-winter outdoor activities. Needless to say I wasn’t super stoked about coming to Utah because I didn’t ski. So last year we got season ski passes to Park City/Canyons and it went okay. The whole ski season was a slow, painful process. I would go down the blues and…

It isn’t all Beautahful

But I am grateful anyway. If we are friends on Facebook, you might have seen my most recent Facebook live. Here it is in case you didn’t: However, I want to re-cap for you just in case you aren’t a fan of those things. So I just completed my second round of reading The Magic (The Secret) by Rhonda Byrne and I really wanted to provide a review. Right away at the beginning of the book I begin to relate…

Moab for the Weekend

Moab for the Weekend

Somewhere between terrain that looks like Mars and the Lion King’s Elephant Graveyard you will find Moab, Utah… probably one of the most unique looking areas in all of the United States. Austin’s sister and her boyfriend were visiting us for the past week and we decided to wrap up the week of skiing with a trip to Southern Utah to visit Moab. Austin and I have been only once right after we first moved so we were excited to make the…

It’s Ski Season

It’s Ski Season

Austin ranked the University of Utah General Surgery Program #1 because he liked the program but the other main draw was the skiing. He grew up skiing in Breckenridge, CO and heard many of the claims about the snow in Utah being “the greatest snow on earth”. He went skiing over 30 times last season and this year got a pass to both Park City/Canyons and Snowbasin. And he has already been three times this year (and the slopes haven’t…

I ordered a swimsuit and found a local pool. I went twice, by…
