desert road trip!
with our home having renovation work done and us needing to be out of it for a bit, we decided to hit the road! my parents took our girls straight home to utah since they had been with us visiting, and chase + wells and i took the long way there spending a week driving through the desert. my end goal was new mexico since i’ve been wanting to go here forever, so it was perfect to break up the drive through palm springs and then stay in scottsdale, one of our favorite places. it’s been so special to have time with just chase and baby wells, and we’ve taken it slow, hiked, had amazing food, and made our way along our route to end up in utah. here are some pictures from palm springs (and a surprise meet up with our besties the hammels who happened to be there the same day!!), then through scottsdale — hiking camelback mountain with baby, eating the bessssttt pizza at la grande orange + shopping and more amazing food at diego pops + chopshop, napping, and enjoying while doing our best to be covid safe! new mexico highlights in a separate post, and then we ended with a night in charming durango, colorado!
