(Month one)

The west has always had a sturdy grip on my heart and Utah is a spot I’ve wanted to head back to since I visited a couple years ago. Now that I’ve been here a month I remember exactly why I was so hype on it. I mean red rocks, sunshine, hiking, camping, swimming, sunsets, canyons, etc… It’s basically a little kacy paradise, with one exception, the damn 3.2% beer. Mmmm all the bloat, none of the buzz.

Fear not though, big mama has a healthy stock left from her days in Maine and hath discovered the liquor stores sell the real McCoy (but only warm and by the single bottle). Wouldn’t be mad if someone decided to get me a membership to the beer of the month club for x-mas… wink wink… Siblings…

Sups glad I hauled my life the 3,000 miles out here, me thinks I’ll happily be living life out west for many moons to come.

Taking Utah by storm.

I got to spend the last week playing in Zion with one of the friends I made up in Alaska! It was way fun and I have to say, I didn’t know the desert had so much to offer… I learned how to make my way through canyons, do a wee bit of rock climbing, drive stick shift (on a massive jeep), and so much more!!

I am still shaking sand out of every single thing I took with me though…
