Thank you so much for the awesome feedback on my interview on the Among the Lilies podcast! I’m so glad you enjoyed hearing my story, and the beautifully raw conversation between Cameron and I.
This week, I am so excited to share with you the videos I made from my trip to Utah!
These are seriously so fun. Not only do I take you on the bobsled with me (where you can hear me shriek as we go over 72 mph!), and to the Forbes 5 Star Stein Eriksen Spa, but — you also get to hear my friends and I sing some pretty sick 4 part harmony, aaaaand you get to witness my absolutely humiliating wipeout down the stairs of our townhome.
Which, I was not going to include, but my friends convinced me, saying it was literally the most hilarious thing in their whole life.
And clearly, I have no shame. So lets blast that blackmail-worthy footage to the entire world, shall we?
*SMH* Who am I, really?
Anywho – I’ve broken it down by day.
The first video is strictly a travel day – with my epic fall.
The second video is our hiking day on Guardsman Pass, drinks at The Montage, and The Wallflowers concert in the park, and High West Distillery.
The third video is our Bobsledding adventure, followed by dinner at Grappa — probably the most iconic restaurant in all of Park City, and some shenanigans afterwards. (My personal favorite video!)
And the last video is our Spa Day at the Stein Eriksen Lodge, followed by their infamous brunch, some singing, and then hanging out on Main Street.
So I hope you enjoy!
Lastly, I got a bunch of questions about the “nuts and bolts” of hiking!
So I thought I’d share some tips/insight that made our hiking trip a lot easier!
We downloaded the app, “AllTrails” – which is an interactive trail map that can be used throughout the country. It links with your GPS, and is incredibly user friendly. So before you head out — (and are in WIFi, or cell service) — download it, and screenshot your map for easy use!
FOOD AND WATER!
These are essential when you’re out on the trail. We all packed lunches — dried fruit, bars, nuts, seeds, sandwiches, peanut butter. Hiking is a strenuous activity, so make sure to fuel up!
Some of the snacks I’m particularly fond of are the LaraBar fruit and greens bars. (This is not sponsored!) And also pumpkin seeds! I get these awesome packs. They have 10g of protein and almost all of your daily goal for fiber — 20g!
And I also always carry packs of organic almond butter in my purse. So I threw a couple in there too.
Water is also of utmost importance. I carry a Osprey Hydration Pack. It’s also called a camel back. I used it in Spain on the Camino de Santiago, as well as these day trips. But it is a durable backpack that has a water pouch build in with a long tube-straw so that you can drink water, hands free, and without having to take out your pack! I like this particular brand because the water spigot has a magnet on the end to keep it in place!
Bring more water than you need. I promise, you’ll be glad you did.
Y’all know how passionate I am about my skin care. So being up at that altitude, where the sun’s rays are stronger, my sun protection game was on full court press!
I wore this hat — which is worth every. single. cent. It is UPF 50+, and truly does prevent those harsh rays. Plus, it’s super cute. So there’s that. Coupled with my sunglasses, I felt a little bit like Audrey Hepburn.
Good shoes are a must. But socks are even more important. Get a good pair that offer compression and breathability, while also coming up high enough so as not to give you blisters. Remember: your hike is only is good as how happy your feet are!
Other really helpful things to throw in your bag are: hand sanitizer. An emergency poncho. Chapstick with SPF. A little phone-sized waist pouch. Makeup remover for when you’re all finished and want to take off your sunscreen.
This is a little embarrassing, but a little package of wet wipes with an extra plastic baggie. (Just in case you have to pee in the woods! hahaha)
A mini first aid kit is ideal, but even just a couple Bandaids and Neosporin are always a good idea!
And lastly a camera! A lot of people have asked which one I use, and I use a Canon 80D. I love it. It takes incredible photos and video. I would recommend it to anyone!
So there you have it!
Thanks for watching the videos! If I only had time to watch one, I would definitely choose the Bobsledding Video! That was so cool!
