Wynston and I travel a lot, and it’s rare that we take a completely flawless trip. Granted, I’ve learned how to adapt to any sort of change in our travel plans, so I’ve become a pro at improvising. However, it can be stressful when something doesn’t go as planned. Whether your flight gets cancelled, it’s raining at a destination where you planned to partake in outdoor activities, or your dog has a medical emergency, I have tips (all from experience) on how to handle the situation.
You guys. I have so much to talk about. Write about. Share. Like, I don’t even know where to start. Our trip to Utah and Wyoming was supposed to include a visit to Idaho, but it ended up being such a bizarre experience that we didn’t make it there.
Bizarre. Yes, that’s a good word for this trip.
This is gonna be a long one, folks, but I hope you enjoy the craziness as much as I did 😉
Lake Havasu City is the first place I’ve ever visited with Wynston where I was overwhelmed by the possibilities. I knew the city was a popular destination for water sports and vacation, but it’s really so much more. Lake Havasu City is a fun place for people of all ages and interests. Whether you want to visit a dog-friendly bar, take a boat excursion or do some seaside shopping, the area has something for you. Our trip to Lake Havasu did not disappoint, and we ended up doing much more than anticipated. In this post not only do I share our experiences, but I also share reviews from all the places we visited. I also have a couple of fun side stories to share. I hope you enjoy our recap!
I first learned about the BARK Ranger program from our friends at Go Pet Friendly. I immediately became interested because Arizona has three national parks that participate in the program, and we have a lot of upcoming travel plans. I thought the BARK Ranger program would be a great way to get to know different national parks while being an important part of the experience. Wynston was first sworn in as a BARK Ranger at Montezuma Castle National Monument, and we want to share more about what that means, along with photos from our trip!
I don’t consider Wynston and I to be “hikers.” Although we enjoy hiking, I have to keep strenuous activity to a minimum due to my osteoarthritis. Typically I come across trails that I’m interested in while exploring wilderness areas. That’s how I found Butcher Jones Trail. Wynston and I were visiting Butcher Jones rec area when I noticed a trail head off the coast of the beach. When we decided to hike the trail a week later, we weren’t disappointed. The dog-friendly Butcher Jones Trail is an intermediate hike which offers breathtaking views.
