On the ground

Day 7: Colorado National Monument


Nature sure has a way to wake you up early when you camp. Light shining into your tent, early in the morning. Birds chirping. But I wasn’t too upset when I got to see a beautiful sunrise in return.


Day 5: Murray City and Salt Lake City Fireworks


This morning I headed over to Murray City for a good old fashion Fourth of July celebration, which they call Fun Days. While my hometown had a full day of activities like this, it was really cool seeing the community come together.

On the performance stage, an improv group had the audience laughing.


Day 4: Park City


My short time at Great Basin National Park ended this morning. Before I left, I spotted a family of birds nesting in the rafters of the visitor center.


Then I headed east. Only a few minutes outside the park is the Nevada-Utah state line.
