Three things made today's hike fantastic. First, Ann joined me. She is a good and adventurous hiking companion. Second, most of the hike was new. Third, the scenery was stunning.
Today was the day of trail exploration. I headed out from the Bonneville Shoreline trail head with the intention of going deeper into the canyon on that trail than I ever had before. While I did accomplish the goal of going deeper into the canyon than every before, I did not do it on the Shoreline trail, I actually hopped off the trail and explored a vast network of smaller tributary trails.
I tried a new trail on Monday morning and I love it.
If you were hoping this post was about some awesome recipe of how to cook chicken while camping out on a mountain, then you will likely be disappointed. Nope, this post is about a 6' 3" chicken. Me.
On May 1 of each year, Squaw Peak Road is opened back up for car travel. There are several trails that I have wanted to hike starting at the overlook.
Tonight I had finished dinner and cleaning up the kitchen and saw that there was still daylight out. On top of that, Ann was heading up to do homework. So I made, what turned out to be a terrific decision, to grab my gear and head out to the Squaw Peak road and try to grab some last light pix.
