Angels Landing Hike In Zion National Park

Angels Landing Hike In Zion National Park

The Angels Landing Hike in Zion National Park was my favorite hike of our Southwest Vacation. (I’ll have a post about our entire trip up in the next few weeks!) I heard it was difficult, and scary, and awesome. I knew I had to hike it.

Kyle and I were a little worried about the weather. It had been raining on and off all morning. After a late breakfast, we decided to wing it and headed to the park.

Debord Falls Trail in Frozen Head State Park

Debord Falls Trail in Frozen Head State Park

The Debord Falls Trail in Frozen Head State Park is an easy hike that is just a short drive from Knoxville. Kyle and I hiked this trail a really long time ago when we started dating. This time we took the pups and hiked it with my sister-in-law, Staci, and her dog, Moose. It’s a short hike, only .6 miles from the parking lot to the waterfall, so it’s perfect for the whole family.

Rough Ridge Trail Along The Blue Ridge Parkway

Rough Ridge Trail Along The Blue Ridge Parkway

The Rough Ridge Trail is one of the most popular trails along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Kyle and I hiked this trail during our Weekend Getaway To The Tri-Cities Tennessee last month. It’s a relatively short hike, only 0.6 miles to the overlook, and the views at the top are very rewarding. The trail continues after the overlook, but we decided to stop at the overlook since we hiked the Hawksbill Mountain Trail earlier in the day.

The Best Google Chrome Extensions

I decided to finally bite the bullet and purchased a new MacBook Pro over tax free weekend. It’s nice to have the mobility of a laptop again. (And the comfort… it’s so much better to write this on my couch than at my desk!) One of the first things I did when I started up my new MacBook was to install Google Chrome. It’s the best web browser. Sorry, Safari. After I installed Google Chrome, I started browsing all of the Google Chrome Extensions. If you use Google Chrome then you really should utilize the Google Chrome Extensions to make your browsing experience so. much. better.

Gypsy Circus Cidery In Kingsport, TN

Gypsy Circus Cidery in Kingsport, TN

One of my favorite parts of our Weekend Getaway To The Tri-Cities Tennessee was visiting Gypsy Circus Cidery in Kingsport, TN. I first discovered Gypsy Circus Cider while having dinner and drinks at West Hills Flat and Taps in Knoxville. It’s the only local cidery near Knoxville. (Hopefully that will change soon! Someone should open up a cidery in Knoxville. Please?)

The outside of Gypsy Circus Cidery in Kingsport, TN is very unassuming. I thought, “this is it?” when we parked in a strip mall parking lot. When you walk inside, you are immediately greeted by a large bar with custom glass-tap handles and a huge board that lists all of their on tap ciders and beers.
