My girlfriend and I spent my 30th birthday hiking through Zion and Moab, Utah. It was an emotional whirlwind as these are, to date, my favorite places on Earth. Red and orange crust of the earth towering above some of the most serene landscapes - many of them barren and otherworldly, riddled with arches and caves to explore. It was incredible sharing this stretch of the world together. I'm still gleaning nuggets inspired by our trip. Here's a shot from our hike through Hop Valley in Zion National Park.
