We hiked in the 1.7 miles up to the intersection of the pipe and the end of one section of the trail. We dropped our packs and climbed up the steep path that houses the pipe
While in general, it is a great to think of photography, and life for that matter, from a variety of perspectivies. But today, I chose to go singularly with the macro lens.
The 4th of July weekend presented lots of holiday fun and also lots of hiking beauty. This post focuses on the hiking.
After hiking up the hill, I discovered that there was a lot more to the trail.
At first, I thought it was a humming bird. But when it was on the ground flapping its wings, I could tell it was something different.
Summer hiking is in full effect and I am loving it. I love being on the trail, feeling the heat, and of course, making some nice pix.
The best of my photos from June 2020.
Today, Ann and I climbed up more than half way to 4.1 miles. We had a 2,100 foot elevation increase on this wonderfully beautiful journey on a day with perfect hiking weather. Another key milestone for today was the fact that we reached 9,500 feet of altitude on the hike. That is the highest I have ever been hiking.
One of trails that leads to the summit of Timp is the Timpooneke (tim-poo-new-key) Trail. This morning, after the rain stopped, I drove up into American Fork Canyon and went to the trail. My intention was to hike about 1.4 miles in on the trail, count it as a bit of practice for the 14.2 mile hike to the summit and back.
