Fairies and Cliff Dwellers and Angels

Actually, it’s a single ferry, but that just didn’t fit the theme as well. Humph. Mike and I took off on our roadtrip on Sunday, July 31st, 2011. This, incidentally, was my birthday — birthday 29.2. With only vague plans in mind, we drove north. After a mere 2.5 hours of driving, we pulled into … Continue reading

Traveling Applejax Dot Com!

I have upgraded and updated my blog with every intention of being much better about posting things in the future. You can tell I’m more serious because I have a .com and not a .blogspot.com or .wordpress.com. I know I’ve said before that I would return to blogging only to post 3 times and disappear … Continue reading

Soldier Canyon

The weather has been gorgeous here in Arizona lately, so Mike and I decided to take advantage of a sunny Sunday. Late Saturday night we packed our car and headed south toward Tuscon.

Participants did a speed competition to see who could climb two routes the fastest and a … Continue reading

Trad Climbing Granite Mountain

It has been a couple of hectic weeks, what with the new semester starting and all, but we managed to get away from the hustle and bustle in order to do some camping and climbing this Labor Day weekend. We left late afternoon on Saturday with a car full of people and gear. You wouldn’t … Continue reading

Sedona Views

So, you thought you’d never hear about our adventures again, right? I must admit, I didn’t think blogging was necessary once I got back to the States. I thought Facebook updates and regular phone calls to my family were enough. I could tell my stories, post a few pictures, and get on with things. That’s … Continue reading

At Altitude

Well, Mike and I have set foot in South America — a first time on this continent and south of the equator for both of us. We had a long, kind of tiring journey from Phoenix to L.A. to Panama City to Quito, but we’re here! Of course, once we got here it took us … Continue reading

Playing Catch-Up

Long time no write. Oopsy. Since I last posted an update I’ve been cliff jumping at Gisela, partying in Vegas for my little sister’s bachelorette party, and working hard. I’ve moved out of my apartment and am now a step closer to my travels. Mike and I have booked our plane tix to Cancun, where … Continue reading
