Since leaving California, we have to think of creative ways to surf waves!
We are still in Utah. Let’s take a moment to act surprised... We don’t usually take climbing photos, so here’s an oldie but a goodie of our favorite hike. Several months ago we were fortunate enough to visit the Wave, located outside Kanab.
I had always seen photos and thought: “oh I’ll never get around to doing that.” Even on the road, I didn’t bother to factor it into our plans because it’s hard to secure permits. Then one day we found ourselves in Kanab and thought, what the heck, let’s just go for it. This was the most. amazing. day. of hiking.
And I think that summarizes our approach to life in the road— we may have a rough plan but we ultimately just wing it. We never expected to spend nearly 3 months in Utah, to avoid national parks almost entirely, or to bring a puppy into the van. Yet, that’s what we’re doing.
I finally finished a big batch of work and am now committing the next 5 days to steep cobble pulling!! Woop woop!
In other news, Peanut is apparently becoming a bit of a celebrity around Maple Canyon. He’s loving it!!! I’m convinced this dog loves EVERYONE else more than us. Oh and he decided to roll in bushes full of sticky sap— so that’s a thing we got to deal with. Little turd— we love him SO much.
