When you research trail info, sometimes the description says the trail is lightly trafficked. If you are new to researching hiking trails, besides the obvious meaning, here is what you need to know. #trailtiptuesday Since the trail is less traveled, it’s more than likely you will find the trail less maintained than the ones you are used to in the parks. There might be fallen trees and/or branches blocking the path and you may need to find your way around it. At times, the trail might just disappear all of a sudden and leave you to decide where to go next. You might need to bushwhack through your way to your destination. If you don’t have GPS or a map, this can be tricky and confusing. The trail might have erosion. More than likely, you won’t find trail signs. What else have you noticed?

Exploring the places that cultivate a deeper appreciation for the world around us. Stoked to have my sights set on adventure as my main man @nickuthe and I gear up to head to Arizona at the end of this week. Looking forward to all the the Flagstaff and Sedona areas have to offer😁
Went chasing waterfalls with @jriley23 today. Georgiana Falls was pretty cool, but Harvard Falls was completely covered in snow. Still it was a nice shorter #sundayfunday#snowshoe before heading home. #mtnchicks
There is something to be said for a day outside doing what you love. This smiling 11 year threw a huge ol fit shortly before this photo was taken, but it just seems to all be a bit better when there’s an amazing view. Parenting is not always easy. Raise your hand if you’ve had one of those moments lately. Oh and if you want to go skiing in Tahoe you can stay with us, out of the snow, and drive up? The boys and I just went for the day today.
“The art of living… is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past on the other. It consists in being sensitive to each moment, in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive.” -Alan Watts-
