    Farewell to Maddie & Gordie!

    August 29, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We pulled into Fayetteville, NY, the home of Maddie and Gordie, and had to say goodbye :( Patrick was very confused as we left, but is so lucky to have such a great big sister and big brother! Patrick finally learned Maddie's name this trip!!! Bye-bye Go-Go and May-na!

    Also, our tour guide from the Firey Furnace tour is in this month's Backpacker magazine!!! He was as amazing as the article states. So cool we got him as our guide! Thank you, Glenn Reynolds!!! You are an amazing storyteller and an inpiration to our future ranger, Gordie!

    Fiery Furnace Tour, Arches

    August 27, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Angus, Maddie and Gordie went on what they deemed the best tour all trip today. It was exploring the cracks and canyons in amongst the rocks in Arches for three hours with a Ranger. While all of the photos are on the real camera, here are a few scenic ones of the park now that the sun has come out. Angus earned his Jr.Park Ranger badge for being the sweeper of the tour. ¡Muy bien!Read more

    Delicate Arch

    Cool hike out with temperatures in the 70's and cloudy. The moment we arrived at Delicate Arch the skys opened up and it poured! We got the Christmas card shot in just in time! Everyone except for Patrick enjoyed the rainy hike back. Nice 3-mile round trip before dinner.Read more
