Utah National Parks in a Nutshell (July 2013)

Canyonlands National Park

This just in! Camping is in tents! (See previous post.)

Hi everyone! It’s been awhile since my last serious update, and a lot has happened!

My blog just turned 4!

So, a few days ago, wordpress just let me know some big news! (Yes, we’re bff’s and talk often.) My blog turned four years old… That’s a big deal. And just like having real kids, that’s when you really need to start taking care of them.

My blog has a name!

Again, just like any four year old, you gotta name them when they get to a certain age. (For legal reasons, I guess.) Maybe you’ve already noticed, but I’ve changed it from it’s initial “jletookthis.wordpress.com” to a sleeker, sexier domain name… http://www.seldomlyupdated.com. Yeah, that’s right. It’s a strangely fitting and apropos. It also gives me an opportunity to use the word “apropos”.

Raise the roof! Our National Parks have reopened!

So, congress congressed and they were somehow able to pull their heads out of their respective (yet somehow, less respectable) asses. They  raised the debt ceiling, and our economy didn’t spiral out of control and we can go on living for a few more months and enjoy our reopened parks.

UTAH in 15!

So, in honor of the National parks reopening, I thought I would post a video I had put together from my trip to the big national parks in Utah this summer. My brother, his friend and I (see photo above), took a week to hit Mesa Verde, Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce, and Zion. With all the photos I took, I decided to put it together into a pseudo-timelapse travel slideshow/video. Although I didn’t pre-plan it, I think it turned out pretty well.  So, if you’re keen to spend a some time on a whirlwind trip hiking and zooming past some beautiful scenery, feel free to take a look. Enjoy! (Also, it’s best viewed in HD on Vimeo.)
