“I want to go on a road trip. Just you, me, the highway and the radio. The blue sky, the black roads and the windows down. We’ll talk about everything and nothing and we’ll sing our hearts out. We’ll make memories we’ll never forget.”
Last week, my childhood friend Casey and I set out on a spring break adventure through Utah and Colorado. Enjoy the photos from the journey!

This park is known for it’s “lunar landscape”
The “Pioneer Register,” where early Mormon pioneers left their mark, carving their names in sandstone to acknowledge their travels.
Apricot trees were almost blooming. We enjoyed a delicious strawberry rhubarb pie after our hikes in the park. It’s amazing the Fruita orchards are still maintained and harvested.
What a spectacular road trip!
