|Very chilly hike to the falls at Zion National Park|
I love the off-season at Zion National Park. There are fewer crowds to navigate and you get to experience the beauty of Utah from a unique perspective — sometimes there is snow. Or waterfalls. Or icy streams. You are likely to see some baby big horn sheep — or bald eagles.

I’m lucky to have kids that are not afraid of the cold. They also love to get dirty. We’ve been hiking with these kiddos since they were just a few weeks old. It’s in their DNA.

I hope my kids always keep these moments close — and never forget the adventures we have as they grow up in wild Utah. They are so lucky. They have more adventures in a month than I had in my entire childhood. I think it’s important for them to grow up exploring. And being outside in nature. Learning to love and protect the Earth.

Get outside — explore, love, respect, protect. This is our planet. Be kind to her and all that live here.
