Last one from Prague - the giant Kafka head sculpture. Feel free to attribute your own meaning.... #kafka #prague #europeanadventure #metamorphosis

This is supposedly the only legal spot for street art in Prague. Let me tell you, there’s an awful lot of illegal street art out there. This piece of wall did act as a mouthpiece for resistance and revolution under communist rule. “In 1988, the wall was a source of irritation for the communist regime of Gustáv Husák. Young Czechs wrote grievances on the wall and in a report of the time this led to a clash between hundreds of students and security police on the nearby Charles Bridge. The movement these students followed was described as "Lennonism" and Czech authorities described these people variously as alcoholics, mentally deranged, sociopathic, and agents of Western capitalism.” -Wikipedia The courage of oppressed people to stick up for their beliefs is inspiring! #prague #packyourbags #traveltheword #adventureisoutthere #europeanadventure #liveyourtruth #streetart #johnlennonwall

Trying to sneak in some hiking time between these spring storms. Hiked up Mount Wire and enjoyed a beautiful day and magnificent views. Got a little slippy-slidey on the snow across the ridge. Just keeping it interesting! #girlswhohike #hikingbuddy #doghike #bordercollie #springweather #utahisrad #getoutside #mountainlife #finnthewonderdog

Sled dog race in Jackson Hole back in January. It was so much fun to see the sled dog teams and their mushers running through the streets of Jackson, WY. It was a random thing to come across on a ski weekend, but were so very glad that we did! #dogsledding #jacksonhole #weirdstuffyoucomeacrosswhiletravelling #explore #wintersports #mountainlife #sleddogs

I haven’t kept up with my weird tourist attraction list, so here’s one I happened upon outside of Roswell New Mexico. No sign or explanation - two 18 foot tall cowboys having an argument across Hwy 285. A little research told me that they’re murals by John Cerney called “Cowboy Ruckus “. Anyone else seen these? #roadtrip #newmexico #weirdtouristattractions #johncerney #keepyoureyesopen #cowboyruckus #murals

So, the only silver lining I can find in the dog waking me up at the crack of dawn is getting the opportunity to see some amazing sunrises!!! 🌄 🌅 This was also the highlight of my 12 hours spent at the Marfa Lights Viewing Area...well, the sunrise and the free camping spot. ⛺️ 😏 #marfalights #didntseenuthin #itscoldinthedesert #amazingsunrise #sunrise #beautyisallaroundus #slowdown #explore #westtexas #marfa #roadtrip #vantravel #gottagetupprettyearly

Road trips aren’t all sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes it’s bad weather, sometimes it’s getting sick while on the road, sometimes it’s equipment malfunctions. This trip, it’s a persistent rubbing noise in the rear end that sent me to a dealership for a little diagnostic and peace of mind. A dragging parking break shoe is the culprit. Hoping our “fix” will get me back on the road and safely through a couple of thousand more miles. Thanks to Albuquerque Mercedes-Benz for getting me in so quickly and patiently discussing the problem and possible solutions. I’m super grateful for their help! #justanotherbumpintheroad #vanlife #sprintervan #roadtrip #vantravel #findawrench #doyouhearthatnoiseintherearend #mercedesbenzofalbuquerque

Have you ever been to a place and given yourself goosebumps just thinking about all the people who’ve lived and died there? Yeah, I did that to myself today. Wandering around Taos Pueblo feels like stepping back almost 900 years in history. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site and is considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. Originally, these dwellings had no doors, few windows, and they were accessed by ladders through holes in the roofs. I think I have always associated adobe structures in the southwest with the arrival of the Spanish, and the establishment of the mission system, but these dwellings were built 500 years before their arrival. I’m just grateful for those who are working to preserve history for all of us to experience and enjoy. #unesco #taospueblo #newmexico #roadtrip #explore #southwest #historyiscool #adventureisoutthere #vanlife

Another day, another ski resort. I really like the vibe at Taos. It’s small, but really fun. I’ll have to come back when they have more snow and you can really dive into the steep stuff. Anyone want to head to Taos in February? #taosskivalley #taosnewmexico #skilikeagirl #skisafari #roadtrip #vanlife #ikonpass #explore

Weldwerks Brewing Co. - it’s taken forever for us to make it up to this brewery. It does feel like it’s in the middle of nowhere, but definitely worth the drive! An amazing selection of beers and the quality is incredible!

One of my favorite things about road trips is being able to check out new breweries. Casey Brewing is doing amazing things, and makes some of my favorite funky fruity beers! We had a wonderful tour. I highly recommend it! #caseybrewing #glenwoodsprings #beertravel #beermakesmehappy #vanlife #beertourism #sourbeer #wanderlust

Best Halloween decorations ever! Salt Lake City seems a little over the top in their love for Halloween, but these people take first prize! Every year they have the most amazing decorations. Last year it was King Kong, this year - Jurassic Park! Gotta love people with crazy artistic skills! #halloweendecorations #utahisrad #spookyfun #jurassicpark #exploreyourbackyard #halloween #trickortreat #saltlakecity

I think every weekend should be a long weekend! Who’s with me? Had a great mini-adventure hiking up Mount Aire on Labor Day! Great views, and the air is somewhat clearer than it has been in a while. There’s a hint of fall leaves out there. Can’t wait for more adventures and cooler temperatures! #utahisrad #getoutside #mountainlife #adventure #girlswhohike #hikingwithdogs #bordercollie #mountainview #adventureisoutthere #hiking #millcreekutah

Day hike in the Uintas to try to get out of the smoke in the valley. North Fork of the Provo River lakes loop. Beautiful scenery, cool temps, and lots of lakes! Nice quick getaway! And I highly recommend stopping at The Notch on Mirror Lake Highway for burgers, beer, live music, and a dog friendly patio after hiking. #utahisrad #uintas #hikingwithdogs #girlswhohike #getoutside #mountainadventures #adventuredog #adventure #explore #hiking #finnthebc #trails #lakehike #summer
