Hi my name is Karen,


I am a natural born red head and have been told by many that I have a strong one track mind. I have been married for 20+ years and we are parents to one adult son.

Many would say that I am not the same person I was 13 years ago. I was pretty sedentary and really did not try many new things. One day I just decided to take charge of my life which resulted in a large weight loss which for the most part, I have been able to maintain  ever since. Since then my life has drastically changed. Our weekends are usually packed with adventures from sun up to sun down.

I truly believe you only live once, so live life to it’s fullest. I have tried many new adventures and have truly found my passion to be hiking. So far my largest elevation hike has been to the top of Angle’s Landing in Zion National Park with my husband for our 20th. wedding anniversary. However, I still have a long list of hikes to accomplish yet. When we are not hiking you can find us kayaking, stand up paddling, or geocaching.


I would have never did any of this when I was heavier and I wish I would have came to this conclusion earlier in life. Now I feel like I have some catching up to do and hope to complete my bucket list before it’s too late.


I hope you find my blog informative and inspiring. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy the adventure.

  1. Thanks, Karen, for a fun and informative blog! You know I don’t love cooking, but you may even inspire me to try some of the things I find here. It’s great to read about the SUP experiences you are having. I am still stuck figuring what watercraft will give my family the best water interface.
    PS: I have always loved your hair!
