"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Tuesday's Hike: Lame Horse Trail

Lame Horse Trail has some of the most varied terrain I've encountered on a trail thus far: we walked through pine forest, rock slide, aspen grove, and meadow. It was like being on a treasure hunt because every time we went around a bend, we encountered something new and exciting.

Things to know about this hike:
  • As part of the Alpine Loop, this trail is in a National Forest fee area
  • The trail shares the same trail head as one of the routes to the top of Mt. Timpanogos, then forks after a couple of switchbacks (so don't get too confused!)
  • Time: we hiked up for half an hour before turning around
  • Location: Alpine Loop
  • Difficulty: easy-moderate
  • Hazards: rock slides near the beginning, stinging nettle near the stream
