Talk about something right out of a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film. The Grand Falls are located just east of Flagstaff off the I 40. I had been yearning for adventure lately since Mathew has been gone at Army training the entire month of July so I braved the drive and took the […]

Exploring The Wave Cave

Lately I have been struggling with motivation to workout in a traditional gym setting. I find myself actually losing any drive to really do anything physical once inside the gym walls.

Valley of Fire State Park

I have been reflecting a lot recently on life and how time should be spent. I struggle constantly with the notation that humans…specifically me shouldn’t be forced to sit at a desk all day under fake lightening to earn a living. My heart sinks at the thought of that being my life until I turn […]
