This time last year, I had been feeling rather frustrated with the daily routine that was my life. Don't get me wrong, I loved my job and the people I worked with, but I was longing for something more. I found myself constantly looking up destinations on Pinterest every chance I got. I dreamed of visiting these places, meeting new people and eating and drinking the local cuisine and beer.
The last major stop on this grand camping adventure was Zion National Park. I'd been wanting to visit Zion since my freshman year of college six years ago (yes, I know I'm old), when a group of friends went camping there for a guy's trip.
The morning after Mesa Verde, my sister and I began our journey back home. We decided to drive through Utah and visit some of the state's national parks. Our first stop was at Arches National Park in Moab, where we decided to glamp in a teepee the first night. For those of you that don't know, glamping is glamorous camping and the place we chose (despite the high winds at night) couldn't have been better. It was just north of the park and was the cutest campground ever, filled with teepees and safari tents.
