Hiking the Grand Canyon rim to rim

by Kim August 21, 2012

Our rim-to-rim hike in the Grand Canyon was the event that Brian and I based our whole summer road trip around. The three-day, two-night trek from the north rim to the south rim was hard but completely worth the effort.

Beautiful Asheville, North Carolina

by Kim June 26, 2012

Asheville, North Carolina is a city after my own heart. It’s tucked in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s known for its good beer and funky residents intent on doing things their own way. The weather is good. The food is delicious. The roads are bikeable.
