Annual Bash photo dump! More fun at the rodeo grounds including a crawling block party, tours of some epic rigs (like popcorn Jeff’s van, pictured), gallons of jungle juice in the party section, more presentations, awning help from @toughtopawnings, and last but not least... drunk Marshall! 😂🤩

Today was an all-day mimosa fest with friends, rounded off with fake tattoos and a night keeping it real in @theflippingnomad’s rig, admiring her endless hard work. Bonus excitement, besides finally seeing this beauty in person- seeing that the Ultimate, her RV concept with Keystone, uses some of the same tile as @dustydeezel’s bathroom #imdead #ontrend #blacktilesareinyall #lowesforthewin

Sunday funday definitely lived up to its name today!! Even if we’re all paying for it by passing around this cruddy desert cold. 🤧😷 #xscapersbash2020 #sundayfunday #letstalkrenovations #xscaperstherapy #butwhatpaintdoyouuse

I don’t know her exact birthday.. but my babygirl turns 10 this month. 😭 I don’t know how to feel about that. She has been by my side for almost ALL of my 20s and I’m so happy to have such an awesome adventure sidekick. Faithful, playful, protective, whip smart and silly - I love this girl and am ecstatic that I’ve been able to take her from a pound in LA to some of the most beautiful, wild locations in the country. 💜

I almost forgot to add NYE to my timeline. It was a pretty crazy night in the desert.. amazing that Xscapers can set up a night like that for free!! I have so many fun videos of friends dancing that would probably bore you so I’ll just post a taste :) #NYE #nomadlifestyle #fultimerv #xscapers

Someday I’ll fix that darn awning. 😅 But first... sunsets! This was the first sunset of the year for me, and a really great way to start the year.

The last few weeks (months maybe?) have been such a whirlwind of activity that I’ve barely had time to sit and appreciate everything happening.

Right now I’m looking back at Christmas in awe of the holiday setup we had in the middle of the desert.

I mean, c’mon. When I started RVing, this stuff was nowhere to be found in the depths of my imagination!

One of my focus areas for the new year is to get back into hobbies for the sake of hobbies, so while I’m figuring out what that is, you’ll probably be seeing more photo edits here. 🤓 I hope your new year is kicking off to a great start and I’m excited to start sharing more again!

Glacier National Park Part 2: The Grinnell Glacier Trail Hike

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 87 views

Sharing is caring!

If you’ve never seen a glacier up close and personal, the Grinnell Glacier Trail is a must-hike trail when visiting Glacier National Park.

Is it for the faint of heart? … No.

Is it epic? … Yes.

To see the other photos from my Glacier National Park visit in Sep 2016, visit this post. To read on about just the Grinnel Glacier Trail (and our almost-grizzly encounter)… read on!!

The trail starts easily enough as you pass Swiftcurrent Lake from the Grinnell Glacier Trailhead, which is close to the St. Mary (East) side of Glacier National Park.

Soon you start to see warnings for the wildlife in this area!

As the trail ascends, you’ll walk along mountainous cliff-sides that are rugged and beautiful.

You’ll probably see a bunch of pronghorn sheep, too!

As you climb in elevation, you’ll see grand views of Lower Grinnell Lake which is a mysterious and fascinating blue-green color. This is due to the sun’s reflection off the sediment in the water that comes from the glacier ice as it melts.

Soon enough as you keep rounding corners and heading higher, glaciers will come into view. Watch out for grizzlies, and don’t look down if you’re afraid of heights!

Oh, the big horn sheep need to be avoided, too!

Once you reach the glacier a few hours later, you’ll be exhausted but impressed. I was actually expecting the glacier to be a bit bigger, but it was still really cool.

We didn’t walk on the glacier ice or walk up close to it as you can fall through if you can’t see a crevice, and we were running short on daylight to get back.

Those big horn sheep are no joke!!

Neither are the cliffsides!

 


Shortly after the above photo was taken, a hiker who had been behind us called out to us to warn us of a grizzly bear we had just passed within 6 feet on the left. The trail was below the field on the left of us, and the grass was so high, that we didn’t see it!

I was really bummed but also elated to have missed it!

Fun fact: remember Jack Hanna from TV? Apparently he was charged by a grizzly bear on a narrow cliffside portion of the Grinnell Glacier Trail! I’m glad we didn’t have to experience that. 😀
