Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives


Triple-D LogoAs self-proclaimed foodies and lovers of all things yummy, we are huge fans of the Food Network TV show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” (also known as “Triple-D”).  If you’re not familiar with the show, the host, Guy Fierri, travels all over the continent to sample the food of different diners, drive-ins and dives (hence the name).  He seriously has the best job ever! Click HERE to see all the restaurants he’s visited throughout the country and search them by location!

Food Network LogoWe’ve salivated over the many mouth-watering dishes shown on the show and have been intrigued by the countless eclectic food joints featured, wanting to try most of them.  And now’s our chance!!! We plan on visiting several of the restaurants shown on the show as well as try some random places we happen to come across on our travels.  Stay tuned for our recommendations, reviews and photos of these eateries and their dishes!

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!

The view from the top! The High Bridge Trail led us up above Box Canyon Falls over a suspension bridge where we could see the river flowing through the canyon, spilling down through the narrow rock walls, and forming the towering waterfall plunging far below.  Had we not kept exploring from the base of the falls, we would have missed this vantage point above.  Moral of the story... always keep exploring, or you’ll never know what lays ahead.  Tag a hiking or travel buddy who’s never satisfied, always wanting to venture on and see everything possible! Behind the scenes of Box Canyon Falls. Swipe 👈🏻 for more pics of the waterfall, walkway, and viewing areas.  Does this remind anyone else of that scene from Jurassic Park III with the birdcage? We kept expecting a pterodactyl to swoop down and try to grab us.  Haha! 🤣 While in Ouray, we visited the town’s own “wonder of the world,” Box Canyon Falls.  A short hike took us through the box canyon to the dramatic waterfall which we were able to view from the partially enclosed walkway as well as down below at the base of the falls.⠀
There’s a $4/adult entrance fee for Box Canyon Falls, but since it’s considered one of the must-dos in Ouray, we were willing to pay to see it.  What’s been your favorite tourist attraction that you thought was worth paying for?
