Day 20 (6/20/14): Heber City, UT | Midway, UT

This was a laid-back day. We gave the truck a much-needed wash to clean off the caked-on insects. Then we grilled up some hotdogs for lunch. I took a lovely little nap in the afternoon and later worked on the blog to try to get caught up.

For dinner, we drove through Heber City into Midway, a small Swiss town nestled against the mountains. We ate at Café Galleria, a quaint little restaurant on Main Street located in what reminded me of an old farmhouse. The weather was perfect as we sat outside and enjoyed live music while we ate our meals. From there, we drove back into Heber City and stopped at Granny’s Drive-In for a milkshake dessert.  It was a nice end to a nice, relaxing day.  🙂

 

Day 21 (6/21/14): Park City, UT

Back in January 2007, after we had been dating for a few months, Justin took me to Park City for a ski trip. It was my first time in Park City as well as my first time skiing. Since the last time I was in Park City was over 7 years ago and in the winter nonetheless, my memories of the area were fuzzy and covered in snow. It seemed completely different in the snow-less summer though. It was green and sunny instead of white and dismal.  The weather and surrounding mountains were beautiful!

They had the street closed to traffic as they were setting up for an event that evening, which made it more enjoyable to walk up and down Main Street, crossing from one side to the next as we saw interesting shops and potential restaurants for lunch. Park City’s Main Street has been my favorite Main Street so far with its eclectic storefronts and mountain backdrop.

We’re the Bennetts, Justin & Briana, and it’s time for a change! We've left our jobs and everything else behind to start fresh somewhere else. They say it's all about "location, location, location," and what better way to figure out the best location for us than to explore the entire country searching for it? We’ll be driving across the continent with a truck and travel trailer on the cross-country road trip of a lifetime! Tag along with us and our two dogs, Meaty and Saucy, as we explore North America searching for our next destination!

A total of 4.7 miles with over 1,100 feet elevation gain in less than 2.5 hours rewarded us with some sweeping views along the Lost Mine Trail at Big Bend National Park. We only had one day at the Park and are so glad we were able to fit this hike in! What are some hikes you've done in Big Bend? {...} • • • #texas #bigbend #bigbendnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #alltrails #takeahike #hikelife #hikingculture #thehikemovement #ventureout #outdoorlife #optoutside #theoutbound #hikingtheglobe #beautifuldestinations #wildernessnation #adventuretime #adventureisoutthere #adventureawaits #feedyouradventure #adventurelife #adventureculture #hikingadventures #outdooradventures #thegreatoutdoors #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #nextdestinationunknown
Would you believe me if I told you this is Texas? The landscape at Big Bend National Park is like no other (flat) area of Texas we’ve experienced before. We enjoyed the diverse terrain and are grateful that we had the opportunity to experience it.
