"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: Stewart Falls

Tuesday is hiking day, rain or shine, but Pepper Bo Peep didn't want to get soggy so she decided to stay home and play with Grandma instead. So much for raising a tough kid, right?

Well, Jenni, Kirk, and I braved the brewing thunderstorms and saw some gorgeous scenes and wildlife we would have missed out on had we not been committed to Tuesday hikes. I noticed several birds I hadn't seen before, and we all stumbled across the path of a 6-point buck. Cool, huh?

Things to know about this trail:
  • There are two ways to get to the destination: through Aspen Grove or through Sundance (we took the former route)
  • Time: 45 minutes up, 45 minutes down
  • Location: Alpine Loop
  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Hazards: slippery roots, stinging nettle, and lots of silly teenagers (one of whom thought it was okay to poop on the trail--not cool)
