Way Back in the Day

On the recommendation of a film school buddy who's been Canadian all his life, we doubled back east of Calgary to tour the Red Deer River Valley, hitting many of the Badlands hot-spots before immersing ourselves in Drumheller dino-madness.

Leah and I were more…Read more Drop-Dead Gorge(ous)

Hoodoo You Trust?

Leaving Zion behind for Bryce Canyon gave us cooler temperatures, cooler tempers, and cooler views--now that we left the maddening crowd behind and were no longer limited by what we could see (Keeping an Eye on Zion). After driving two hours through riveting scenery along 89 North, we arrived…Read more Hoodoo You Trust?
