Happy Halloween!

While on the road for so long it's easy to lose track of time, especially when camping in the middle of nowhere, like we have been recently. It's often a struggle to remember exactly what day it is, and pretty easy to forget about upcoming special occasions. That hasn't been the case with Halloween though. Kristal has been obsessed with carving pumpkins for as long as she can remember. She has been planning her pumpkin for weeks, and has been paying special attention to our schedule to ensure we could be somewhere to get pumpkins in time.

We were able to find a couple of good pumpkins as we were leaving Joe's Valley, and yesterday we hosted our own pumpkin carving night after bouldering at Triassic.

Here I am making quick work of my simple, yet effective, design.

And another shot of us hard at work.

Kristal's plans were elaborate as always and a quick storm forced her to finish in the car. Thankfully the storm passed in a couple of hours and it turned out to be a clear night.

Here is the result of our efforts. I don't think I need to point out whos is whos.

And here they are outside of our tent.

We're currently headed to the Moab area and look forward to setting them up at our new campsite tonight. We hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!


  1. Yeah, I'm pretty proud of it... oh, you mean Kristal's... yeah, I guess it's alright. :) I'll let her know!
