Dubuque, Iowa: Hidden Gem on the Mississippi

We had originally planned on spending a full month traveling across Nebraska and Iowa. As it turns out, that's just as hard to do as it sounds.

Vagabonding in Zion National Park and The Kolob Terrace

We've spent the last 3 years living just a short drive from Zion National Park.  Before we embarked out of Utah on our grand adventure, it seemed only fitting that we spend our last bit of time in Zion.  We've had many a one-day and two-day adventure in Zion, but due to working schedule restrictions, were never able to spend much longer there.  This time we were able to spend an amazing 11 days camping, hiking, climbing, laughing, playing and experiencing Zion.
