The first time I visited Yosemite National Park, I was blown away by the natural beauty. The views, the waterfalls, the alpine lakes, the giant sequoias, and the dramatic rock formations were all more stunning in person than I’d imagined. I’d seen pictures, of course, but they don’t prepare you for seeing the Valley for the first time. On my first trip, I hiked up to the Half Dome Saddle (it was in Spring so the cables weren’t up yet to go to the very top). Since then, I’ve backpacked a good chunk of the Park on my John Muir Trail thru-hike and the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne, checked out the ..read more

Epic 7-day Teton and Yellowstone Road Trip Itinerary

Back when I was a kid, my parents rented an RV, and we took a road trip to Yellowstone. I remember being in awe of the colorful geysers, the insane amount of wildlife, and the beautiful scenery. I’ve now been back several times in my camper van, and each time has been no less exciting. As a science-nerd, I absolutely love exploring Yellowstone’s geological wonders. Just next door to Yellowstone is Grand Teton National Park, where the scenery is completely different. You swap the easy boardwalk strolls among geysers for BIG mountains where the hiking opportunities are just endless. The good new ..read more

Taking an Oregon Coast road trip is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to experience this beautiful section of the Pacific Northwest. The rugged coastline is home to everything from towering mountains to sand dunes and endless beaches. The Oregon coast is known for its moody appearance and some of the most beautiful ocean views in the Pacific Northwest. I lived in Oregon in 2022 and spent nearly every weekend either hiking the lush trails or out exploring the coast. I was able to experience so much of the area and it has become one of my favorite places that I’ve been. In this post, I’ll cov ..read more

State parks are often underrated, and Goblin Valley State Park near Green River, Utah is no exception. Located about an hour and a half from Moab, this state park is a vibrant valley of sandstone rock formations with stunning hikes and camping options.

12 Reasons to Become an REI Member

I became an REI member 18 years ago right when I finished college and decided I wanted to get more into camping. I remember being in the Seattle store buying my first Gregory pack while the guy in the green vest helped me stuff the pack full of sandbags. Then I walked around the store for a bit before I decided to take the plunge. Two weeks later, I returned home from my first backpacking trip and, as it turns out, I didn’t like the pack all that much. Luckily I bought it at REI and they have the best no-questions-asked return policy, so I was able to exchange it for something I found to be mo ..read more
