Wildflowers on the Pacific Crest Trail
"...The Northern Sierra's have a special beauty all their own...This section of trail is definitely my favorite so far.
The mountain's are mostly brown with streaks of white snow, the valleys are lush and green and sprinkled with a wide variety of colorful wild flowers, the forests are full of beautiful tall redwoods and pines, the lakes are a cool blue, and the high mountian vistas are breathtaking."~ Shilo http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?id=542303

Holy cross mountains on the Colorado Trail
" ....everything is simple and straight forward. Eat, sleep, walk, repeat. The decisions are all judgement, with no right or wrong answer. It is what is the best in the moment. The people are great, and they often have a great story."~Alan R.

Coming off of route 174 I climbed a 600 foot hill topped by a jumble of huge rocks that my guide book listed simply as "the maze". Someone with a pretty sick sense of humor had routed the trail through these rocks in the most difficult way possible. This forced me to squeeze through tight gaps, scramble over sheer slabs of rock, and slide down steep rock faces. Once over and through the maze I could see just how easy it would have been to route the trail around it but then, I suppose, they couldn't call it "the maze".' ‪#‎whiteblaze‬ http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?id=540263

1,000 surprises...."We got to the trail and soon after came to the beginning of a section of trail known as (and properly named) 'the roller coaster'. It consists of about 13 miles of relentless ups and downs, and nestled amongst it is the 1000 mile marker! "

Back to the trail! Resting time is over. Seven Miles out of Kennedy Meadows Space Cowboy hits the PCT again after some much needed rest.
"I cowboy camped under the stars and, away from all city lights and no moon....I awoke at about 1:30 in the morning to see the Milky Way flooding the sky with light! Breathtaking!"http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?id=536722

Feeling stressed? Take a hike.
For my BC-based friends: http://www.clubtread.com/
The great outdoors might just be greater than you think. There are plenty of us who love to spend as many hours of the day outdoors as we can, and hiking is obviously quite healthy for the body,
