Cherry Creek Falls

It’s Tuesday. Kiddo hiking day. Except we’re not hiking. Turns out having only one totally free day each week makes it really tough to squeeze in all other things we like to do, in addition to hiking. Duh. I should

Mount Margaret

Talk about a cluster of a hike. It’s entertaining now, looking back. And we knew in the moment we’d be happy we hiked, and how everything that went wrong would make for fun memories. But man, we were not feeling

Paradise Valley Conservation Area

Paradise Valley Conservation Area. I wasn’t going to bother writing about this hike because it’s not worth writing about. But here I am. I have pictures, so there’s that. This is from Tuesday, September 1. Three weeks ago. Damn smoke

Annette Lake

Why are lakes named either Name Lake or Lake Name? Somehow other bodies of water have this figured out. There’s no Ocean Pacific, River Amazon, Creek Griffin… and so on. I guess there is the River Thames. But still. Things

Dirty Harry’s Balcony

The name alone was my inspiration for wanting to hike this sucker. There’s also Putrid Pete’s Peak that’s on my list. There are hike names that are to the point, like Twin Falls. Because you hike to Twin Falls. Then

Tuesday is now kiddo hiking day. We started the Tuesday hiking thing the first week in August, although it’s officially my plan for fall. With (almost) everything online this fall, I’ve managed to keep Tuesdays free and clear of anything.

Lake 22

Or is it Lake Twenty-Two? It’s written both ways. And as someone who appreciates consistency, it’s also written Lake Twentytwo and Lake Twenty Two. Four different ways. Whatever the official way is, what a freaking amazing hike. Absolutely stunning. That’s

Swamp Trail
