Looking outside at the drizzle and rain, it is clear that we are in what some people call “mud season.” Trails are too muddy to mountain bike and there is not enough snow yet to ski. For many, mud season can be depressing. For our family, this is a time to snuggle up on the couch with the warmth of a fire and recover from a busy fall. We affectionately call it: “binge-watching TV season”. In honor of binge-watching TV season, I thought I would share my top shows for you to enjoy.
1. Yellowstone – Season 4 is returning this Sunday on Amazon Prime (and I cannot wait!!!)
A sixth-generation homesteader and devoted father, John Dutton controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. This binge-worthy show includes corrupt politicians, family dynamics, property conflicts, shifting alliances, unsolved murders, and hard-earned respect in tough country.
2. You – Season 3 just released on October 21st on Netflix.
What would you do for love? For a brilliant male bookstore manager, this question is put to the test each season. This show highlights when crushes become sinister, and when nothing can stand in the way of love.
3. Ted Lasso – on Apple TV, Season 2 was recently released.
Small-time American football coach Ted Lasso is hired to coach a professional football club in England, despite having no experience coaching football. This show is certainly a feel-good uplifting series.
4. Turner and Hootch – on Disney+, Season 1 released earlier this year.

Turner & Hooch is an American buddy cop action-comedy television series based on, and a continuation of, the 1989 film of the same name. After watching the original movie, this show became a family favorite.

Snow biking

Think biking is just for the warmer months? Think again and try a snow bike. A snow bike has fat tires which enable a rider to glide through the snow no matter if it is packed down or fresh. The terrain can range from a casual ride if the trails are covered with a few inches of snow to advanced terrain. If you aren’t sure about snow biking and don’t want to commit to buying one, visit All Seasons Adventures and take a guided ride on one of their fat tire bikes. Experience a different type of bike ride and experience the amazing trail system on a white wintery day!

Inside a Sophisticated 1920s Manor in California

In the early 20th century, the award-winning team of David J. Witmer and Loyall F. Watson—celebrated architects of the American Southwest—designed numerous public buildings and private residences, which earned them renown for outdoor living spaces and homes that that encourage a relationship with their natural environment. That connection is readily apparent in this stately manor, which was built in 1929 for the Henry W. Swafford family.

This Month’s National Park

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is one of the oldest and most famous parks in the United States, it also happens to be just a 5 ½ hour drive away from Park City. This makes it the perfect weekend expedition and a great way to spend time with family while exploring a new place. Yellowstone is known for its geothermal hot springs, incredible wildlife, rushing rivers, and so much more. Yellowstone is quite large and spans 3,500 square miles so an itinerary is highly suggested before visiting. There are so many incredible things to do at Yellowstone; however, one of the must sees is Old Faithful. The Old Faithful Geyser currently erupts around 20 times a day and the height ranges from 100-180 feet and can be seen from a viewpoint that is easily accessible.

A great hike to do in Yellowstone (there are many) is the Fairy Falls Trail. It is an easy hike and suitable for all skill levels. The distance of the hike is 4.8 miles with only a 170 foot elevation gain. On this hike you can expect to see a waterfall, hot spring, rivers, beautiful scenery and an abundance of wildlife. We recommend going later in the day to avoid crowds and enjoy the natural beauty of the park.

An incredible place to stay is this custom home just 10 miles away from Yellowstone. It is a spacious five bedroom, five bathroom cabin built to accommodate the whole family. The home is located on a half acre and surrounded by ‘mountain country’. It has a warm nostalgic feel and also offers exceptional views from the great room and front patio of the famous ‘Lionhead’ Mountain. The home is conveniently located a quarter mile from snowshoeing grounds, trails, a national forest, and cross country skiing. Starting November 15 the option to use a hot tub is available to guests to enjoy as the cool winter temperatures return!
