ROAD TRIP SERIES: SAND HOLLOW STATE PARK, UTAH!
Just like that summer is BACK as I got to spend this past weekend on the beach where I'm most happy! A road trip to Utah, a full day of adventures, and in the end, happy feet with shoes full of sand. This place has it all...dreamy blue waters, red sandstone landscapes, sand dunes and the warmest October breeze. I can keep going and going! Just remember the name...it's called Sand Hollow State Park. No matter what month, what day, what year...you've got to visit it!!!
On top of that, it offers amazing trails for riding ATV's through the sand dunes for the wild at heart, boating for the party seekers, fishing for the mellow hearts, camping for the home bodies on wheels and epic backdrops for the instagrammers. Everyone under the stars can be fully satisfied here! And you know what's interesting? This state park opened not long ago to the public in 2003. This makes it one of the newest, and so far, most popular in Utah.
You'll find Sand Hollow State Park near the town of Hurricane. The drive there is fun as there is lots to look at. You won't even feel when you've reached your final destination. Also, it won't hurt if you sing along to some music, the way my sister and I like to. Yep, we're super vocal! Just imagine what happens when two powerful voices come together! hahaha!🤣 MAGIC! 😉
What do you say we continue this road trip series together? Instead of sitting at home, imagine you're with us...laughing, swimming, taking photos, getting a Starbucks along the way and having an all-day FEEL GOOD, HAPPY kind of day!
Wanna hear something funny? The coat that I dragged with me on this road trip (you won't see it in the photos) was the laugh of the show between my sister and I. I took this white winter wool coat, which doesn't go with these views at all and would have been a complete disaster in these high temperatures. It took its part in the back seat of the car where it belonged. I was destined to enjoy this beach day in my swimsuit, the sun kissing my skin with light sounds of water splashing against the vivid rocks.
Thankfully, I did manage to bring a bathing suit. It's a lifesaver when you know there's going to be water. Also, the cool thing about Sand Hollow is that you can do rock diving. There are lots of rock islands, some higher than others from which you can jump. That is of course, if you're an adrenaline thriller who likes to play by his own rules.
As for the outfit here, I think it's save to say that when road tripping it's best to wear simple, comfortable clothing. With each trip, I'm starting to feel/see the importance of choosing comfort over style (a bit difficult for me). With a few more road trips behind me, I think I will definitely do a post about what to wear when going on a road trip. Keep on the lookout for this post and be sure to follow my blog!
Aside from being at the beach, feeling summer again, this day brought the most glorious sunset to end our Utah trip. The whole sky was a palette full of colors dancing with one another. One of these sunsets that will always be stuck with me. It was beyond incredible!!!
