Our Vie Adventures

Chaco Footwear

Our Vie is composed of Cees, Madison, Vladimir the Kitten, and a 1989 Toyota Motorhome named Vie. Cees and Madison are living the dream of every outdoor-minded couple, visiting every single national park in the country over the course of the year.

In celebration of our National Parks Centennial, Chaco has partnered with Cees and Madison to bring you stories and photos of their yearlong quest of visiting every single National Park (and of course, plenty of #vladimirkitten along the way).

Keep scrolling to see Cees, Madison, and Vladimir in action. Stay tuned to our Downstream Blog for updates on their adventures and follow us (@chacofootwear) and them on Instagram (@ourvieadventures) for more frequent updates from the road.

Vantage, Washington

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

Our Hike to Angels Landing: Dangerous? Maybe. Amazing? Definitely.

Angels Landing, Utah

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.
