Why I Never Need To Go On Vacation Again

Our family went on a cruise to Mexico a few weeks ago. We saw some seriously beautiful things. Stunning sunsets. The incredible ocean. Amazing views. It was obvious why people travel here to see everything.

After our vacation we drove home to southern Utah. As we were nearing home I was taken by just how beautiful MY home is. I don't need to go on vacation to see beautiful things because it feels like everyday I'm surrounded by the most amazing scenery in the world.

Just to prove my point, I took my camera on my drive to work. I wanted to give you a glimpse into what I have seen on my 30 minute drive to and from work everyday for the last ten years. I didn't drive anywhere special. These views are on my route. Every. Single. Day. It doesn't get better than this.

This is one of my favorites:

I like this one too:

  1. Gorgeous! My views may not be as expansive, but they're more green. I love living in a beautiful place too!

  2. I'm convinced we are super lucky to live in Utah. So many different kinds of beauty everywhere!

  3. We're planning an RV trip that will probably include Utah, hopefully, running and bike riding included. Such a beautiful state!

  4. You do live in an amazing area. I travel to see things I can't at home, which is pretty much anything.

  5. Every time you do an ultra it's like going on vacation. Travelling 100 miles, eating at rest stops, taking photos along the way. You've been on vacation every month this year.
