Take a Hike!



Watched an inspiring movie on Netflix last night called "Mile...Mile and a Half" - a documentary about five friends who hike California's historic John Muir Trail, a 211-mile stretch from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney. They hiked for 25 days and captured some amazing images! One member of the group dropped out after a few days, but they picked up some other hikers along the way.

The movie inspired me to go ahead and do the hikes that I had planned to do this summer and haven't done yet. So beginning next week, we are hiking at Vedauwoo, which is about half an hour away from Cheyenne.

The following week, we are planning a hike at Sugar Loaf at Medicine Bow in the Snowy Range, where we've hiked several times. As you make your way up the trail, you eventually find a mountain lake nestled among the pines. There is snow there pretty much all year long. Especially this year since we had record-breaking snows in Wyoming this spring.
