This was likely one of the best hiking days I've experienced in the 20+ year we've lived here.
When my bestest friend came to visit, she wanted to go for a hike, see a waterfall and drive to the top of the mountain. So we did!
Not only did we go over the mountain but we went to four different waterfalls and had the nicest day. She was an incredible map reader so we didn't get lost too badly when the gps didn't have a signal. AND...it was nice to have an adult in the car that could enjoy the adventure with me while not finding fault in the little mishaps along the way.
Not to mention, the weather, scenery, and wildlife put on quite a show for us. I couldn't have ordered it better if I'd put in a special request.
