Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, MO

Another St. Louis landmark my uncle highly recommended was the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis. He was right again! It was incredible! It seemed like every square inch of wall, floor, and ceiling inside was covered in mosaics. I’ve never seen anything like it in […]

Cathedral of the Plains, KS

Our first landmark in western Kansas was a bit overhyped. Our second landmark was the famed “Cathedral of the Plains” which turned out not to be a cathedral at all – a designation that requires the church be the seat of a bishop. Nonetheless, the […]

Trey in Arches National Park

We spent 2 1/2 days in Arches National Park and did a fair amount of hiking. Though you can see a lot of the landmarks from your car, the best ones (and the best views) are obtained by hiking. The longest hike we did was […]

A Couple Random Utah Pics

Took these between Capitol Reef National Park and Hanksville, Utah. We were just leaving the storms that had plagued us for the last three days.

Bryce Canyon National Park

The weather wasn’t cooperating in Zion so we left two days early. We drove northeast to Bryce Canyon National Park hoping for sunnier skies. We didn’t find any. I put up our tent in the rain and the downpour forced us to a nearby hotel […]
