Another long travel day ends with a dip in one of three rivers and making s'mores!

Mormon settlers claimed that the tree, silhouetted by the bright hot sun, resembled the likeness of Joshua leading God's people to the promised land with outstretched arms. I can't decide if that's the scorching hot sun driving them mad, or if that extra morsel of iconic faith gave them the will to keep moving. Either way, this land is one of the most intriguing places I've ever been, and under that dry and scalding surface, life finds a way to press forward, just like those early Mormon settlers.

Another travel day is logged in the books. Can we keep up this energy, and can we keep pushing toward each destination with the same kind of fervor with which we began? Time will tell, but this one is going to end well.

It’s the edge, that line between what you know and what you don’t. That boundary can be hard to see, but you feel it in your chest the closer you are. Evan asked me just the other day, “why do we even need fear?” This is why, I think. Because being fearless can lead to recklessness. Recklessness will have you over the edge before you even have time to realize what’s happening.

I truly love travel days. I love the anticipation of what we might see next and the time we spend on the road. Today, we crossed into Arizona and saw the Glen Canyon Dam on the way to The Grand Canyon. Nothing compares to seeing this for the first time. I'll talk about why on the other side of this link.

A ranger-guided tour, some California Condors, more beer tasting, a dip in the freezing river, and a good hike to the Emerald Pools with my boys, and a half-dozen deer on the front lawn! What else could anyone need on such a great day?

Our first day actually exploring the park was fantastic! We saw a few sights, I got my feet wet, snd the wildlife didn't seem to mind us getting close:)

On travel days, we all have to do our part to make sure that the camp is clean, organized, and ready for the road. Today, that meant washing dishes and getting the kids on board for some activities so Jen could do some laundry. I know it’s not glorious, but the logistics involved in keeping this machine moving are fairly involved.

I’m going to say that Bryce Canyon was a little disappointing. It’s still a beautiful place, and we still enjoyed seeing the things that we could see, but I think there were several factors that made it difficult for us to love it the same way that we loved Arches and Canyonlands.

We packed so much adventure into one day, it's hard to narrow it down to just the best moments. One thing is for sure: this view never gets old!

Our first excursion into a national park with the RV included hiking to the Delicate Arch, plenty of water, and getting covered in that beautiful red-rock dust.

Three-hundred and fifty-ish miles is what we did today, but we're at our first campsite for a few days and I'm thrilled with the way this has started.

This blog post is all about day two from our trip and it's a general overview of the RV exterior.

How do you pack a camera bag for five weeks? My plan was to take everything, lol.

What goes into creating a wedding package? What kinds of services do you want and which ones do you really need? In this post, I spend a little time introducing the concept of the wedding package.

Derrick Brady and Wayne Reich team up to photograph weddings because two professional, independent photographers working together as a team are better than one.

It's always tricky to place a value on photography services, but I've found that it's important to be upfront and clear with potential clients.
