Park(e) City Redux

Waiting in line to get on the Alpine Slide


Ready to tear it up!

Perhaps the greatest thing about buying a waterproof and shockproof camera is that we can hand it off to the kids... Emma shot this one of Mia and the next two...

Notice the sign over Max's noggin.

Underwater Emma

Jackson shot this one of himself.

Videos! Our favorite is probably the last one, but they're all worth a few seconds of your time.

Thanks for a great weekend in Park City, Parkes! Happy Birthday Emma!

Flaming Gorge and the Green

Over the Fourth of July, we had to (got to) go to Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area so I could do some Forest Service work. We camped at Red Canyon and Mustang Ridge, kayaked from Sunny Cove, toured the reservoir in style in a State Park Ranger boat with John the State Park Ranger and Ali the Forest Service Ranger, and the highlight of the trip was a trip down the beautiful Green River in a Forest Service dory with Shaun the BLM river guide and his girl Becky. It was a great but short trip to a place we never would have thought to go.

First boat-in campsite on the Green. Look at that crystal-clear water!

Bad video of our first rapid. Although it was only a Class II (or maybe even a 1+), it was exhilarating!

Our dory at the take-out, near John Jarvie Ranch.
