The Michigan Road Trip.

After growing up snowmobiling in the Upper Peninsula, roaring through beautifully silent, snow-decked forests and thickly iced lakes and attending the University of Michigan & exploring the Great Lakes, how could I not seize the opportunity to visit again? The most difficult portion of the planning process: condensing the potential stops to our week’s worth of time. Without exaggeration, I could have spent a month hiking and swimming with absolutely no cell reception and been the happiest clam on the planet.

Pictured Rocks, I Love You

Dancing the Dolomites: Rotwand to Grasleitenpass Hütte!

The clouds roll in as the sun begins to set and the pale crags stretch into rose | lilac | indigo and gone. It’s still and heavy outside, but I don’t know because I sleep like a marmot from the excitement of the day. Scrounging for an Euro, the shock of the three minute ice…

The Dolomites: Rosengarten

One of my favorite places in the world! If you find yourself in Italy, Germany, or Austria, or, let’s face it, pretty much anywhere in Europe, it is 1,000,000 times worth the trip to hike through the Rosengarten. An extraordinarily unique range in the Alps, the Dolomites are other-worldly with their vast array of landscapes…

The Journey Begins.

Guten Tag. My name is Kelsey, and welcome to my internet space! My goal: To re-experience or plan adventures and get you out experiencing the world, because, let’s face it, Netflix is overrated. Or, if you’re already an active, adventurous human like I am, this is more a space to share enthusiasm, relive amazing travels…
