Today we celebrate the Earth, sometimes it is easy to take it for granted when most of the time our feet walk on asphalt and our eyes stare at a screen. Only by deliberately seeking time in nature, experiencing the beauty of our earth through all our senses, we can appreciate the gift and understand the importance of respecting and protecting our Planet. To more days outside, more hikes, more rides or climbs or swims or runs, to your next trip into the wild. Happy Earth Day! .
Sometimes the world is much bigger than what we can imagine. We walked through the Narrows and we spent a lot of time laughing and trying not to fall in. 📷: @rebeccayanyk 📝: @jakechristopherthompson 📍Springdale, Utah 🇺🇸

Probably the last time I’ll ever hike this trail. It was fun until I got 7 blisters from my boots. I’ve never gotten more than one on this hike before but I’m so glad my sandals held up 11 more miles of steep rocky/sandy hills. Also, tripped on a rock, fell 4ft down on my knees & hands onto more rocks. 😂😂 That was my fault. I wasn’t paying attention. Overall, it wasn’t as fun because of what happened. I’ve never been this sore in my life. I might be getting old. Lol. If I can hike this in one day, sure I’ll come back. Which means the next time I go, @nmetot21 will have to come with me. So we can have yummy breakfast like this in front of the bridge. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

Happy Earth Day and National Park Week!
How incredible is it that we get the opportunity to explore what this world has to offer every single day? Take a step outside, go down a new trail and get lost for a day. Nature truly has a way of bringing peace.
Instead of just saying ‘happy earth day’ I encourage you to make 1 or 2 small changes in your lifestyle to show real gratitude and take action towards saving this planet we are celebrating
STEP #1 is getting reusable bags, straws, and coffee cups. I cut out these three things about a year ago and it’s so much easier then your think. Yes, i’m not 100% perfect, sometimes the waitress will forget to not give me a straw or I forgot my reusable bags at home, but it’s a significant change over time that adds up. Single use plastics are destroying the Earth and are completely unnecessary / used out of convenience
Other things you can start doing today to give back to the planet:
1. Slowly switch to energy efficient light bulbs every time you change one
2. Commit to one vegitarian day a week (it takes 2500 gallons of water to produce a single POUND of beef)
3. Buy essential items in bulk to reduce packaging
4. Switch to paperless billing and sign up for https://www.directmail.com/mail_preference/ to get off of mailing lists who send mail to your house
5. Buy clothes at consignment & thrift stores and be sure to donate clothes rather than throw them away
6. Support environmentally conscious brands / research and shop at ethical stores
The first step to change is being aware, if you appreciate the beauty this Earth has to offer, these changes are necessary to save the planet. Give back to this planet that gives us so much
My 2019 earth day change is to start implementing one vegetarian day a week, WISH ME LUCK!!
I’ve always loved nature but living in Utah has given me a whole new appreciation for our beautiful planet. We have so much beauty and amazing things right at our fingertips. I love living so close to red rock and green forests and there’s so much to explore! •
I love finding new ways to lessen my footprint and leave our planet a little better than we found it. Happy Earth Day! 🌎🌳 ⛰

Happy Earth Day! Here is a photo of one of the most memorable hikes ever through the rocks in Utah ✨🌎
It’s earth day and I could really use some mountain Melissa one on one time today. It’s pretty much the only thing that gets me out of my head and helps me believe that everything will be okay, eventually.
✨Question for Utah families...We’re looking for fellow outdoorsy families to hike, bike, swim, and explore with. Does anyone one know of any meet-ups or Mama groups who like to get their kiddos into nature? My 2.5 year old is looking for adventure buddies 😊 please let us know!!

Happy Earth Day!
Reducing our impact on the earth can feel totally overwhelming and it’s just within the last few years I’ve really understood how badly we are hurting our home. My goal for this year is that when I buy a new product or replace one, I go for the most green replacement. Recently this has included beeswax wraps instead of plastic wrap and biodegradable dental floss. We’ve been using reusable grocery bags for years now but that’s an easy switch also! What is your favorite earth friendly swap for single use items? Help a girl/our world out!💕
Happy Easter from Angels Landing! I’ll be honest — I (Missy) did not make it the last half mile from Scout Lookout to the top, Angels Landing, but Travis did. I watched too many videos that psyched me and my fear of heights out. Regardless, the hike to Scout Lookout and Angels Landing is beautiful but very, very steep; the kind of steep that hurts on the way back down. The first shuttle leaves the Visitor Center at 7am and we were in line at 6:45 — five minutes later and we wouldn’t have made the first shuttle. It’s a 25-minute ride up to The Grotto shuttle stop where you get on the trail. It took us about 45 minutes to get to Scout Lookout and then another 30 minutes for Travis to get up to Angels Landing. Today ended up being the perfect day for the trek, with fewer people and no real lines, even at 9:30 when we made our way down. There was a moment when the sky got dark and we had a few sprinkles that made me nervous for Travis to come down from Angels Landing, but it cleared quickly and was a very comfortable hike back down. To those of you who have thought about doing Angels Landing but are afraid, I can tell you that I regret not attempting it. Next time!
