Tales From the ROWd

Hello Everyone from VERY sunny Moab, Utah!


Last week on the road, and Tuesday, Joe and I did some hiking around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.  It was a squelching 96° most of the day which I surpassed by counting the number of water bottles I depleted and times I reapplied sunscreen. The answer is 4 and 3.  Still had a bought of heat exhaustion and literally sat under a rock for some shade while Joe took over photography duties. 

Feeling good now, although sad my trip is coming to an end. 

I am excited to get back into WordPress and catch up on all your blogs!  I’ll have more trip details to share and some other big announcements coming up.

YOU can be a huge help with those announcements on Friday’s blog.  I’m posting a poll to get feedback on my blog and I NEED YOUR OPINION!  Please share what you love/don’t love/want more of so that year 3 of the Happiness Project can be even bigger and bolder than ever!

Thank you ever so much all you awesome friends!  Now get crackin on those goals of your own cause I’ll be checking in!

  1. Sounds as if you’ve had a great trip! I’m anxious to hear about it as we hope to visit many of the places you mentioned next year! I especially like your book reviews, and I look forward to reading more of them!

    1. Thanks Dorie! And I thought of you cause we drove right by Buffalo, WY. What a landscape! That state has so much.

      See you at book club!

  2. I’ve always loved your blog! I think you should definitely keep your book reviews. Guilty pleasures is fun too. If you’re looking to change posting days, maybe begin writing something that reflects your novel genre. Otherwise, I like your site as is.

    1. Thanks Marcia! Based off my comments I believe you are my number one fan! 😀

      1. I’ll always be your #1 fan, Jess!

  3. Don’t go falling into a crevasse and getting your arm stuck behind a boulder now, okay? I’d hate for you to star in the sequel to 127 Hours!

    1. The thought had crossed my mind. Avoiding that! Not starring in the next film. *shudder*

  4. Loved Arches and Canyonlands. Sure am glad I went in February. I needed a jacket when I was there.

    1. Yah I told Joe I’d love to go back, especially to Canyonlands, and camp but I’d go in the spring. Smart move.

  5. Oh, I would love to be on a trip right now, especially some place cool….enjoy! And thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. It wasn’t “cool” on our vacation. Temps in the high 90’s and 100’s. LOL. But it was still amazing to get away for awhile!

  6. Really enjoyed your Twitter updates about Yellowstone and the bison. It is amazing what 96° feels like at that altitude, isn’t it? If you do go in the spring, remember that springtime in the Rockies includes snow. Sometimes, late June or even early July are not as hot.

    Best to you in this round.


    1. The temps were insane! It was 100 degrees in Arches and Canyonlands Nat’l Park, but in Yellowstone, it got down to 30 degrees at night. Just crazy!

      Thanks for the twitter chats while I was on the road, sure had fun! Wouldn’t mind moving to Wyoming some day. What a breathtaking landscape!
