The Blue Lakes Trail Colorado

This hike was one that I have been wanting to do for some time. It is a relatively easy 6.6 out and back hike with only the first mile or so being the most difficult. The pay off for this hike is three of the most beautiful blue glacier fed mountain lakes you can imagine. I only saw one of them and we also had a surprise visitor on the trail but I would recommend this hike to anyone.

Zion National Park

Zion is one of the most beautiful places to visit in our country and provides so many wonderful views of nature and wildlife it is almost criminal not to see it. In this video, I share some of the most popular areas of the park including the hike to Angels Landing and The Narrows.

Half Dome

For my first video of the 18 day road trip, I present to you my hike up Half Dome at Yosemite National Park. This was probably one of the most challenging and satisfying things I have done to date. I am so glad I did not give up on the trail when I wanted to so many times.

Exploring a Secret Waterfall at Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve

My friend Jen and I took a day trip to nearby Ohio to check out a waterfall I read about in Backpacker Magazine. The picture of it in the magazine was just beautiful so I had to go check it out in person. I hope you enjoy the video.

In this video, we arrived at Estes Park Campground to stay for a few nights (cannot say enough good things about this campground by the way) and we explored RMNP, Trail Ridge Road, and Grand Lake. This was a few days of some pretty awesome adventuring
