2013 In Review

I can’t believe 2013 is almost over! It’s been quite a year in the life of Team 3Up:

January and February:

Most of January & February were spent hanging out in Ajo exploring the desert. Highlights were driving the Camino Del Diablo and hiking in Arch Canyon.

March:

We sold our Sprinter van and bought an adorable 1977 Scamp. We also watched live bombing practice on the Barry Goldwater Range and went Jeeping in Mexico. As the weather started to warm up, we headed north to Moab.

April:

After doing some snow wheeling, we decided the Scamp wasn’t quite what we needed and switched to a Chevy van. We hung out in Indian Creek, visited the San Rafael Swell, and explored the Book Cliffs.

Along the way, the mountains called to us and we visited the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and the San Juan mountains.

May:

The mountains had called to us alright…we bought property outside of Ridgway, Colorado!

June andJuly:

June and July were all about exploring the high country of the San Juans, plus we visited Mesa Verde. I also was named a Stonewear Ambassador for 2013-2014.

August:

14ers month! We climbed Mt. Sneffels and did battle with Mother Nature on El Diente before successfully summiting both it and Mt. Wilson the following week! We also attended the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City and had a blast.

Exploring our new home continued along with doing some work up on the property.

October:

We adventured our way to Moab and then on to Oregon to pick up our new motorcycle. We bought our toyhauler and began making winter plans. I also became part of Columbia Sportswear’s #omniten!

November:

We hit the road again! November stops included Goosenecks of the San Juan; Comb Wash; Cottonwood, Arizona; and backpacking in Sycamore Canyon.

December:

The last month of the year was pretty much taken up getting organized in our truck and camper. We tossed in some adventures around Arizona plus I headed to Chicago for a fantastic girls weekend.
