My wife and I decided to embark on a 3 week road trip with our 14 month old son (see much more on my Instagram). It seemed crazy but we didn’t want to be afraid to road trip because it may be difficult or uncomfortable some times. So far things are working out way better than expected and I am going to do a wrap up with tips on how to road trip with a baby, but for now I’d like to share some photos from Day 2 in Zion.
We love Utah and our desire to go back was what sparked the idea of a road trip. We headed to Zion after sleeping over in St. George for the night. The weather was perfect; it was cloudy and about 70 degrees. Holy shit is it difficult to hike with a baby on your back,though! Beforehand, I did some research so I could buy the best tactical backpack, and this backpack made it a bit easier. We saw some deer and took in all the natural beauty of Zion and our boy squeaked and pointed the whole time. He loved it.
