We’re ten days into our road trip, and life on the road has been great.
We started with a brief stay in Sioux Falls before moving on to Badlands National Park, where we spent a day hiking before staying overnight in Sage Creek Campground.
On day four, we headed into the Black Hills to meet our friends, the Boes, who treated us to our first taste of rock climbing, as well as some great hiking.
We left the Black Hills for Colorado (by way of Wyoming) on day six, for more hiking and some great food with our friend Amanda.
On day eight, we drove into Moab, Utah, to meet up with one of Clarissa’s yogi friends, before spending the night camping at Ken’s Lake.
Day nine found us exploring Arches National Park, doing about ten miles of hiking, including checking out Delicate Arch, as well as other amazing rock formations.
This morning we set out to the Wedge Overlook; it proved a little difficult to get to. The dirt road seemed a lot like no road at times, but it was definitely worth the trip!
Then we went to Salt Lake City to stop by the flagship store and offices of my favorite gear company, Cotopaxi. You can see their gear and clothing all over our photos from this trip! It was a pleasure to meet some of the people we’ve interacted with via social media and e-mail, and to see where the magic happens so to speak. Emily and Ali showed us around and talked to us about our adventures and what we do. Brittany was incredibly helpful on the sales floor, and we even had the opportunity to meet Davis, the CEO of the company! They really made us feel welcome, and I can’t thank them enough!
That’s the road so far. I know this is brief, but I wanted to get something out to you all while we had a little wifi. I’ll try to keep you updated as we travel. If you want to see more, jump onto my Instagram; I try to post periodically from the road. If any of this looks interested, I hope you’ll consider subscribing, because I’ll be posting more detailed articles about our adventures after we return.
Until then, stay intrepid everybody!
