Our first all-mailbag episode. Thank you for all the questions and comments you’ve sent to us about our podcast. We thought we’d try something new and dedicate an entire show to answering your questions. It was a lot of fun recording this episode; we hope you enjoy it. Some of the questions/topics we discuss in this episode: What are the transportation options to Isle Royale National Park? How do we stay in shape? Why didn’t we take the pottery chard we found in Grand Canyon NP to the park headquarters? Do we ever do outdoor adventures with our adult children? What’s it like to go to the top of the Gateway Arch? Have we ever thought of creating videos?

In this episode we take you with us on a journey to six of our favorite state parks as we talk about what makes each of these parks unique and why we think they’re astounding. With more than ten thousand state parks spread across the country, our list of favorites is long, and we may have to record several episodes about these smaller, but just-as-spectacular public lands. On our original trip to all the national parks, we had little time to visit them, but since then, we’ve made it a point to see as many as we can. Consider this episode a mere sampling of the hidden treasures that await you. (And, no, we are not partial to parks with “Smith” in the name. But they do get our attention.) The parks we discuss in this episode: Custer SP (South Dakota) Jedediah Smith Redwoods SP (Northern California) Valley of Fire SP (Nevada) Antelope Island SP (Utah) Goblin Valley SP (Utah) Smith Rock SP (Oregon) Links to more information: Photos from our trip Where to learn more about our books and travels Join the conversation on Facebook - we want to hear from you!

Saddle up, partner! Apologies for the corny opening, but—spoiler alert—more horse-related puns are awaiting you in this episode. We’ve taken many treks into wilderness areas in the past ten years, yet most of them have been of the two-legged variety. On this adventure, we let our four-legged friends do the hard part, carrying us (and our stuff) deep into the Pasayten Wilderness of north-central Washington state. As it seems with most of our exploits, there were a few bumps in the trail that we didn’t anticipate. But by the time we ended our four-day, three-night trip, we were ready to do it all over again. We just needed a few days for our butts to stop aching. Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: What it was like to ride a horse for the first time in 25 years The curious suggestions we got from friends as we were preparing The unique characteristics about each of our horses The magnificent setting of our camp and the details of camp life Why our horses deserted us and how we got them back How it felt to wake up in a frozen tent in August Our amazing daytrips  And, it wouldn’t be a Matt and Karen adventure without a guest appearance from an oh-too-familiar slithery companion Links to more information: Photos from our trip Where to learn more about our books and travels Join the conversation on Facebook - we want to hear from you!

28 Havasu Falls

28 Havasu Falls

2021-02-0449:22

Taking a wish out of Karen’s bucket, in 2016 we braved the hike down into the Grand Canyon to Havasu Falls with our friends John and Lolly. Fortunately, we both scored lodging in Supai Village, on the Havasupai Indian reservation, so we didn’t have to carry packs full of camping gear with us. Havasu Creek's waterfalls are a natural wonder that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. If you Google photos of Havasu Falls, rest assured that the turquoise blue water in those pictures are what you’ll see as you’re standing there in person, looking up in awe. In this episode, we describe our trip to see the falls, including the hike down and back, and our stay at the lodge in the remote village by the falls. Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: Where the heck is Havasu Falls? Hint: Not by Lake Havasu Why it took us a couple of tries to do this trip How a last-minute medical emergency almost stopped us for a second time Where the trailhead is for the hike down Description of the hike to Supai Village Seeing the jaw-dropping falls in person Staying at the lodge in the village Tips for how to get a reservation at the lodge What we would do differently if we went back Links to more information: The Havasu Falls website where you can find more information and make reservations Photos from our trip Where to learn more about our books and travels Join the conversation on Facebook - we want to hear from you!

In this episode we talk about some of our favorite hikes in the national parks. It took us a couple of tries to record this one because we had too many on our original “favorites” list. (We may have to do a follow-up episode someday to talk about all of the other jaw dropping trails we left out.) So grab your notebook because we provide a ton of information about must-do hikes in many of the most popular national parks. If you’re like us, you’ll want to hike many of these trails multiple times. Just be sure you take plenty of water, bear spray, and a headlamp. Do not forget your headlamp! And at the end of the episode, we answer a question from our mailbag.  Some of the hikes we discuss in this episode: Devil’s Garden-Primitive Loop – Arches NP Chesler Park-Joint Trail Loop - Canyonlands Fairyland Loop - Bryce Canyon Gower Gulch-Golden Canyon - Death Valley Giant Forest Loop Trail - Sequoia And many, many more... In the mailbag segment we talk about whether we have any plans to hike long-distance trails like the Pacific Crest or Appalachian Trails Links to more information: Amazon link to the 24-inch folding table we use for our side-of-the-road picnics in the national parks* On Amazon, select the 24-inch size table.

Despite its not-so-enticing name, Death Valley National Park is one of our favorite destinations, especially in the winter months. Being the lowest, driest, and hottest place in North America, you might be surprised that it also has 11,000+-foot, snow-covered peaks. In this episode we talk about some of the best places to see in the park and give some suggestions for what to do if you only have a few days to visit. And at the end of the episode, we answer a biting question from our mailbag. Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: How the park got its name When is the best time to visit Where to stay, eat, and get gas in the park The best places in the park to watch the sunset Some of our favorite hikes Spectacular backcountry drives Whether aliens visited the Racetrack (you’ll have to listen to the episode to understand what this means) Links to more information: Visit the park’s website for more park information For backcountry travel, you might want to rent a Jeep from Farabee’s Photos from our trip Where to learn more about our books and travels Join the conversation on Facebook - we want to hear from you!

In this end-of-the-year episode, we talk about many of the topics listeners have suggested to us that aren’t long enough for a full episode. We also try to keep our streak alive of consecutive episodes where Karen cries. You’ll have to tune in to find out if we were successful. It’s been a fun year learning to create podcast episodes and interacting with listeners. Thank you to all of you who’ve supported us in this journey! Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: How do we get along while being together 24/7 (Who says we get along?) Our experiences in the few Canadian national parks we’ve visited What gear is in our packs. We talk about winter gear and summer gear that we always carry.

Little did we know when we cavalierly made the announcement ten years ago that we were going to visit every U.S. national park that we had just signed up for a trip to the Southern Hemisphere. The National Park of American Samoa is part of the only U.S. territory south of the equator. So off we went one December on a journey to explore this South Pacific island paradise. In this episode, we talk about our experiences in the park, as well as what we learned about the Samoan culture while visiting with locals about their way of life. We’ll also tell you why all of the TVs on the island were tuned into NFL games the Sunday we were there. At the end of the episode, we answer a question from our mailbag.  Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: Where the heck American Samoa is and how to get there A little history about the islands Why there’s a national park there Best time of the year to go Where to stay when you’re visiting Some of the activities we did on our trip Our encounter with a flying fox And a special gift we got from a group of Samoan teenagers. But there’s a twist to the story.

In this second part of our mini-series about floating the Colorado River in a small wooden dory boat, we share stories from our second trip through the entire length of the Grand Canyon. We describe some of the breathtaking places along the river that we didn’t see on our first go around, as well as our runs through two of the most extreme rapids in the country. If you haven’t already listened to Part One of this series, you might want to start there. In that episode, we discuss the logistics of a Grand Canyon river trip and what it’s like living on the river. Spoiler alert: both of these trips were adventures of a lifetime. Your bucket list will get longer after listening. And at the end of the episode, we answer a question from our mailbag. Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: We start the episode talking about Karen’s idea of what a bucket list is, and some of the adventures still in our bucket. (This sentence will make more sense after you listen to this episode.) What it was like to float the entire length of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon Descriptions of our day hikes, including Elves Chasm, The Patio, Havasu Creek, and more Floating down the Little Colorado River wearing oversized diapers Our impressions of running two of the biggest whitewater rapids in the lower 48: Crystal Rapid and Lava Falls How the beach below Lava Falls got its name Links to more information: Where to get a copy of our book by the same title: Dories, Ho!

For years we’d ask people who’d traveled the world, “What’s the best outdoor adventure trip you’ve ever taken?” To our surprise, the same answer came up time after time: floating the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. That’s all we needed to hear. So, with a dry bag filled with a few changes of clothes and a toothbrush, we set off down the river with fourteen of our closest friends for a six-day adventure. And, of course, we had a ten-person team of experienced guides with us, along with four wooden dory boats, three support rafts, and many cans of beer stowed below deck somewhere. Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: What a dory is What the heck Dories, Ho! means Preparing for our trip down the Colorado River What it’s like living on the river for six days The thrill of running whitewater rapids in a tiny wooden boat And, would we do it again? Tune in to part two (released Dec. 10) to learn the answer Links to more information: Where to get a copy of our book by the same title: Dories, Ho!

No state in the Union has more public space than Alaska; nearly 90% of the land is owned by the state or federal government, and amongst the vast, untamed lands are eight national parks. Lake Clark National Park, about 120 miles southwest of Anchorage, is one of the most remote. It’s also where one man spent three-plus decades living as one with the wilderness in a small log cabin he built himself on the shore of a magnificent mountain lake. In this episode we talk about our experience in the park and visiting Dick Proenneke’s cabin; the man who documented his wilderness experience and became an advocate for preserving Alaska’s pristine natural places. Some of the topics we discuss in this episode: Where Lake Clark National Park is located How to get to the park Where we stayed when we visited the park How we got to Twin Lakes, the site of Dick’s cabin What it was like to see the cabin in its restored condition Meeting the volunteer rangers who now care for Dick’s cabin Links to more information: One Man's Wilderness: An Alaskan Odyssey book on Amazon Alone in the Wilderness video on Amazon Click here to see photos from our visit to Lake Clark NP and Dick’s cabin NPS site about Dick Proenneke One Man’s Alaska documentary No Place Like Twin Lakes video Sign hanging in Dick’s cabin Where to learn more about our books and travels Join the conversation on Facebook - we want to hear from you!

Brilliant, breathtaking, and magnificent are just some of the words we would use to describe the scenic drives we discuss in this episode. That is if we had consulted a thesaurus before recording our discussion about these spectacular drives. But spectacular they are, regardless of how many times we used the word. One of the great things about visiting our public lands is the roads to and through them make the journey worth the trip even if you don’t get out of your vehicle. Here, we talk about a few of our favorite drives that we’ve discovered during our travels and give some tips and history for each. The drives we cover in this episode: Going-to-the-Sun-Road (Glacier NP) Beartooth Highway (Northeast of Yellowstone NP) Lamar Valley (Yellowstone NP) Needles Highway (Custer State Park) Badlands Loop (Badlands NP) Trail Ridge Road (Rocky Mountain NP) Million Dollar Highway (between Ouray and Silverton Colorado) Highway 24 through Capitol Reef NP Capitol Reef Scenic Drive The Burr Trail (Escalante NM, Capitol Reef NP, and Glen Canyon NRA) Skyline Drive (Shenandoah NP) Links to more information: Click here to see our photos from these drives Video of engineers clearing snow from Going-to-the-Sun-Road Info about the Beartooth Highway Info about roads in Capitol Reef National Park More about the Scenic Drive in Capitol Reef National Park Info about the Burr Trail in Utah Info about the Needles Highway Info about the Badlands Loop Scenic Byway Info about Skyline Drive Where to learn more about our books and travels Join the conversation on Facebook - we want to hear from you!

Featuring a park in our home state of Washington on this episode, we discuss some of the highlights and must-sees at Olympic National Park. From the rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean to the blue glaciers hanging off steep alpine cliffs, Olympic NP has something for everyone. Only a short day trip from the Seattle metro area, you can drive to many of the most spectacular sites within the park in a few hours. If you are a little more adventurous, backpacking through the park gives you a less-crowded perspective on the wild beauty of this “magical” place. We even give you a small peek into what it’s like traveling with us by playing an audio recording we made during one of our more challenging adventures.  Some topics we discuss include: Yes? No? Maybe? Whether or not we plan to write another book Four seasons of fun up at Hurricane Ridge Where to go to see what’s left from the largest dam removal project in history, where you can peer into the canyon below at the newly-freed, rushing Elwha River The myriad of activities at beautiful Lake Crescent: in the water, on the beach and on the nearby trails. Our three-day adventure hiking the High Divide / Seven Lakes Basin Trail which started out with some wild weather The magic of the Hoh Rain Forest What we found--and didn’t find—during our backpacking trip along Shi Shi Beach on the coast of the Pacific Ocean And more...

While visiting Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks in the winter can feel like stepping into a Christmas card photo, staying in a nearby Forest Service cabin with no electricity or indoor plumbing isn’t always so picture perfect. In this episode, we talk about many of our experiences in these two parks during the magical winter season, as well as the thrills and challenges of staying in rustic Forest Service cabins when the temperature dips well below freezing. Spoiler alert: walking through the snow to a pit toilet in the middle of the night with only a headlamp to scare away the bears is both a thrill and a challenge.  Some topics we discuss include: Matt’s latest obsession with organizing all of our travel gear Our experiences snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park during the winter How Karen’s desire to get into the holiday spirit created our new tradition of visiting national parks every December How to find and rent a Forest Service cabin What it was like staying in a Forest Service cabin near Yellowstone with no heat, electricity or indoor plumbing, in December What activities are available in Glacier National Park in the winter Spending a few days in a Forest Service cabin near Glacier National Park Our snowshoe experiences in and around Glacier Would we rent a Forest Service cabin in the winter again? And in our mail bag segment, we answer a question about whether we ever practiced shooting our expired bear spray, and if so, what did we learn.

It was a close call for sure. Had the government not stepped in to protect the land that today makes up these magnificent parks, the Giant Sequoias may have been lost forever. These amazing trees are a natural wonder everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. And the trees in the parks are not the only natural wonder. As John Muir observed over 100 years ago, the valley of Kings Canyon, surrounded by its towering cliffs, is as equally breathtaking as Yosemite. Yet today, only a small fraction of the number of people who visit Yosemite make it to Kings. In this episode, we talk about our visits to these parks and what it’s like to spend a few days walking amongst giants. Some topics we discuss include: When our Photo of the Day Contest began and how Karen ended up becoming the sole judge of our travel photos How we found out that Sequoia and Kings Canyon are managed as one unit Matt’s filing system for all of our park literature Hiking to the largest tree in the world in The Giant Forest in Sequoia NP Other must-see sites close to The Giant Forest like Moro Rock and a tree you can drive through Staying at the Wuksachi Lodge in Sequoia and what Matt tried to buy in the gift shop Visiting Grant Grove in Kings Canyon NP and the 2nd-largest tree in the world Camping and hiking deep in Kings Canyon And in our mail bag segment, we answer a question about which is better for hiking The Narrows in Zion National Park, trekking poles or one of those long, wooden poles you rent from a local outfitter.

We had all but given up on ever getting a permit to hike to one of the most sought-after sites in the American Southwest: The Wave in Northern Arizona. But in the fall of 2019, an email from a kind and generous stranger changed all of that. The adventure to this spectacular rock formation was as awe-inspiring as we’d heard it would be, and in this episode, we describe our experience at The Wave in January 2020. And if you think the excitement was over at the end of the hike, it wasn't. The drive back to civilization on the half-frozen dirt road was an adventure all its own. Some topics we discuss include: What it’s like to participate in the walk-in lottery for permits in Kanab, UT The process for applying for a permit online, and a few tips on how to increase your chances of winning How to prepare for hiking to The Wave in different seasons of the year—spoiler alert: it can be dangerously warm in the summer with no shade Advice on navigating the sometimes-dicey House Rock Valley Road on the 8-mile drive to the trailhead What to expect if/when you finally make it to The Wave And in our mail bag segment, we share some tips about how we’ve reduced the weight in our backpacks on overnight trips, including some of the gear that goes into our packs and what we leave at home.

It is by far the most frequent question we get from readers and listeners: How much did it cost you to visit all 62 national parks? This bonus episode is essentially a detailed mail bag response to this very question. While we know everyone’s expenses will be different based on where they live, where they stay in and around the parks, how they get there, and how long they spend in each park, in this episode we discuss what it cost us to visit them. We also provide some tips on how to plan a journey to all the national parks and a few ways to save money along the way. Some topics we discuss include: Brief overview on the categories of costs incurred when visiting the parks How we planned our journey to all the parks How much it cost us to visit all of them A discussion of another couple’s accounting of their costs when visiting all of the parks (see link below) Some ideas about how to group parks together into a single trip to save on travel costs How we find lodging, hikes, and hidden gems along the way And more!

Few places, if any, in the lower 48 states have remained as wild and undisturbed as Yellowstone National Park. Sure, there are roads and boardwalks throughout the park to accommodate the millions of annual visitors, but its wildlife and unique landscape remind you that this part of our great country has never been tamed. Out of all the 62 national parks that we’ve visited, there is no place like Yellowstone. Because of its size and the many points of interest, to really see and experience all the wonders of this park will require more than a visit or two, preferably in different seasons. In this episode of The Dear Bob and Sue Podcast, we discuss our favorite places to visit inside the park and share a few tips we’ve learned from our trips. Some topics and places we discuss include: A brief history of the world’s first national park Why there are so many geysers in Yellowstone (That’s geysers, the things that shoot hot water into the air, not geezers.) Best times to visit the park A bit about the large mammals you’ll likely see Our favorite places in the different areas of the park: North, Central West, Central East, and more A few hiking tips and suggestions And, in our mail bag segment, we discuss why we didn’t narrate our Dear Bob and Sue audiobooks Links to more information: Yellowstone National Park’s website Map of the park Link to the free National Park Service interactive mobile app To see our photos from this adventure, click here.

Come on seven! Mama needs a new pair of shoes! Yep, you’re in the right place, this is still The Dear Bob and Sue Podcast. Except, this episode has a bit of a twist. In it we explore many of the great public lands that are within day-tripping-distance from—that’s right—Las Vegas. During our many visits to Sin City over the years, we’ve managed to take a few breaks from the general debauchery of The Strip to explore some of the magnificent outdoor attractions in the area. And there are many. So leave the sequined dress and sharkskin suit in your hotel room closet and join us as we get outdoorsy in the desert just beyond the glare of the neon signs. Some topics and places we discuss include: How and why we got started collecting National Park passport stamps Red Rock Canyon - a desert beauty with towering red cliffs offers an escape for hikers, bikers, horseback riders, and even drivers who just want to cruise along the 13-mile scenic drive Valley of Fire State Park - this amazing park has a little bit of everything: petroglyphs, petrified wood, amazing rock formations, a slot canyon, and even an “elephant” arch Lake Mead National Recreation Area - America’s first and largest national recreation area boasts two lakes and nine wilderness areas with miles of hiking trails, showcasing its spectacular scenery whether you’re on the water or on a trail  Mojave National Preserve - Covering a whopping million and a half acres, this preserve has sand dunes, cinder cone volcanoes, and the world’s largest Joshua tree forest And, of course, at the end of the episode we answer a question from the mail bag Links to more information: Link to our blog post Outdoorsy in Vegas Red Rock Canyon homepage Valley of Fire State Park homepage Lake Mead NRA homepage Mojave NP homepage To see our photos from this adventure, click here.

this might be the best podcast I have ever heard. The subject matter is exactly what I have been looking for. The audio quality is perfection, jaw dropping, stupendous, I also need a thesaurus. I could listen to these two for hours and hours. I am envious of and eternally grateful for the wealth of information you both posess. I am currently doing my mundane work dreaming of the days when I will attempt to follow in your footsteps of getting as many park stamps as possible. Thank you for all you do.
