Book Review – The Stowaway: A Young Man’s Extraordinary Adventure to Antarctica

A young teenage boy in 1920s New York is determined to set out on the adventure of a lifetime to explore Antarctica. The only problem is he has no skills or experience to qualify him to join the American team scheduled to depart for the frozen continent. So, he decides to stowaway on one of the ships, starting a series of events that would change his life forever.

Hanksville – a cool place to check out en route from Capitol Reef to Moab

One of the delights of travelling is discovering something new and unexpected. During our winter trip through Utah, we stumbled across the small remote town of Hanksville which has a couple of local oddities including Carl’s Critter Garden and Hollow Mountain convenience store that are worth a stop. There are also some interesting things to explore in the local desert, including the Mars Research Centre and Goblin Valley State Park.

A day exploring Capitol Reef National Park, a quieter alternative to the other Utah National Parks

Even considering Utah’s many impressive national parks and monuments, it is difficult to rival Capitol Reef National Park’s sense of expansiveness, of broad, sweeping vistas, of a tortured, twisted, seemingly endless landscape, or of limitless sky and desert rock. While Bryce and Zion are like encapsulated little fantasy lands of coloured stone and soaring cliffs, the less-visited Capitol Reef is almost like a planet unto itself. Here you get a real feel for what the earth might have been like before life appeared when nothing existed but earth and sky.
