4 of the Most Inspiring Places We Woke Up To

Our recent road trip throughout some of the South West's iconic hot spots was such a refreshing trip for us as a family. From the beauty of the landscapes, to the quiet, peaceful stillness of the star filled nights to the intentional and carefree family time that we enjoyed - it was a time of resetting.

Here are our top 4 places that we woke up at. Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions or if you have any recommendations for our next trip we'd love to hear!

1. Springdale, Utah

Funny story, but the Zion Canyon Campground is not only the same one we camped at our first time to Zion 2 1/2 years ago, but we ended up in the same camping spot! Little Phil tells us this was his favorite campsite and with a beautiful river to play in right down from our tent who could argue with him! 

2. Under Canvas - Moab, Utah

Granted Under Canvas is in a class all it's own. Sitting on our porch watching the sunrise over Arches National Park with coffee in hand has to be the best start a day can have. 

3. The View Campground, Monument Valley, Arizona

One of our best sunrises! We set up our tent in the dark & woke up with plenty of time to enjoy the sun rising over the Mittens & Merrick Butte all cuddled up with our coffee. Little Phil slept right through sunrise & by the time he woke up (or we woke him up...he's an amazing sleeper) we were ready to check out the museum/hotel & hit the road.


4. Lone Rock Primitive Campground, Page, Arizona

Freestyle camping at it's finest. Right on beautiful Lake Powell. Little Phil loved this spot and so did we! Toes in the sand & camping wherever you'd like = perfect combination.
