I was all hiked out after Zion. It was 4pm and I was at a random off-the-highway Starbucks. Where do I go tonight? I decided to shoot Havasupai a call to see if by some miracle there were open spots. They told me there were all booked for the year earlier. I was cool with that…I had just did The Narrows yesterday, and Angel’s Landing the day before –the 2 most amazing hike’s I’ve ever done.
Day 52: What a crazy week!! I did 3 of my favorite hikes in 7 days! Zion National Park includes 2/3 my favorite hikes, Angel’s Landing and The Narrows!

It is Day 20 and we’ve only made it from San Francisco to Seattle. Between getting robbed, my own projects, Nunu’s wedding videos that he needed to finish, other random obstacles, coupled with all the learning & logistics in between, there have been a lot of unforeseen setbacks.
Most of the stress comes outside of travel planning, which we really don’t do much of at all. Pursuing purpose, learning new skills, starting these creative projects are a full time job on its own. We’re still working on finding a balance of fun, work and relaxation. It’s within reach, and we’ve made huge strides. Like the last video says, these challenges continue to be huge life lessons. Both of our lives have already taken quite a turn …for the good, which often comes from the bad.
“ There are deeper reasons to travel – itches and tickles on the underbelly of the unconscious mind. We go where we need to go, and then try to figure out what we’re doing there.” — Jeff Greenwald
