Delicate Arch Arches National Park

One of my favorite things to do when I have friends come from out of town is to take them to places that make Utah amazing. I always start off by taking them to visit one of Utah’s 5 National Parks all within  around 4 hours from Salt Lake. I love taking people to Arches because there is something magical about an arch especially Delicate Arch. The arch skyrockets over 80 feet in the air out of the ground. This hike is easy and almost anyone can and should do it. Read More

Machu-Picchu

We woke up at 2 AM to get out spot in line  to be one of the first people to see Machu Picchu in the early morning light. As most people from other groups tried to sleep our group was up singing and dancing to old 80’s songs. We probably drove everyone else crazy. At 3:30 AM we were allowed to pass the checkpoint. After 3 grueling days we would be rewarded. This post again has tons of pictures and not much info. If you have questions leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer them or check out my friend Sherri’s blog with a lot more details on the trip at her site Postcards and CoastersRead More
