Greetings! We're a family of three (and two cats) that loves the outdoors and our webpage chronicles our various adventures, both near and far. 2019 brought big changes for us. After living in the Hudson Valley in New York for nearly two decades, we relocated to Grand Canyon National Park. We loved our time in the Northeast and were sad to leave, but we are loving life at the canyon. This page will be continued to be updated with trip reports, but to see more photos from the Grand Canyon you can check out our Instagram accounts: pudgygroundhog and
stevenchawkins. Happy trails!

Please click on a photo below to see additional pictures from each gallery. Thanks for stopping by!

News: May 1, 2013 Kathy was thrilled to find out she was the winner of the 2012 Share the Experience contest. Her photo was on the 2014 National Park Pass! Share the Experience 2012 Grand Prize Winner
