Hitched Up: Desert Dwelling

We’ve parked our little home on wheels in all sorts of different climates and environments on our travel journey but setting up camp out among the desert cacti would be a new experience for us. My unorthodox way of planning our adventures thus far has been opening up Google Maps and zooming in on the […]

Hitched Up: California Coasting

The next leg of our journey involved a scramble down the California coast. We purchased our Lance travel trailer from a local dealership in Austin, TX back in November of 2017. We made the purchase several months ahead of our May departure date because we wanted to have time to become familiar with the trailer […]

Hitched Up: Rogue Valley to the Redwood Coast

We headed off from the high desert towards Oregon’s southern coast in search of its beautiful beaches and redwood forests that lead into California. Before we would get there we stopped off in the colorful Rogue Valley. We had a great campsite in Valley of the Rogue State Park that backed right up to the […]

Hitched Up: Cannon Beach and the Historic Columbia River Highway

After seeing how much Gaius loved playing on the sand back in Washington, I was really glad that our first stop in Oregon was Cannon Beach. Home of the iconic Haystack Rock, this picturesque beach town is dog-friendly and lined with art galleries, cafes, and charming boutiques. The beach is nothing short of stunning with […]

Oh, Canada: Jasper National Park and Dry Camping Through British Columbia

Next on our journey through southwest Canada, we headed north towards Jasper National park via Canada’s Icefields Parkway. As the name would suggest, Icefields Parkway travels through the Canadian Rockies alongside several magnificent, icy glaciers (Crowfoot, Athabasca, and Dome) which can be viewed from the road or accessed via a short hike. There are several […]

Since my last update we’ve been to Grand Teton National Park, Henry’s Lake State Park, Yellowstone National Park, and Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park. We are currently stationed just outside of Glacier National Park, so it looks like I’ve got some catching up to […]

Salt Lake City, Utah and Craters of the Moon

When I initially started trip planning I had wanted to visit all of Utah’s beautiful parks before heading into the northern states. That is until I realized I had us scheduled to be in Utah during July when the temperatures are in the triple digits. Instead of visiting Bryce Canyon, Aches, Zion, and Canyonlands (to […]

Hitched Up: Denver, CO

Because driving through a big city and its traffic is usually not a lot of fun in an RV, I chose Cherry Creek State Park as our home base during our stay in Denver. Located just outside of the city, Cherry Creek State Park offers hiking, biking, boating, swimming, and even has a model airplane field. […]

Hitched Up: All Around Colorado Springs, CO

Mueller State Park: We bounced back from a not-so-pleasant stay at Lake Pueblo State Park with an awesome visit to Mueller State Park, just west of Colorado Springs. We stayed for two nights nestled up the mountains and tackled about 12 of the 55 miles of hiking trails. The trails system was beautifully intertwined, making […]

Hitched Up: Abilene State Park

For each destination I visit, whether it be a state or national park, landmark, city, or attraction, I’ll be writing a summary of my experience and sharing photographs, general information, and a few notes on accessibility. An “accessible” environment meets the needs of all visitors, allowing all visitors to access and experience the environment, including […]
