I am in love with desert hiking.
Even this kind where we had to honestly cut through some serious brush to get to that waterfall that lured us in.
See this picture below? That’s not a picture off the side of the trail, that IS the trail.
(or the lack thereof) We had to cut right through that stuff if we were going to get up and back before appointments and kids getting home (it was a long hike).
All those bushes to pave our way through proved to not be the smartest day for shorts, but we survived! Here’s another section of the “trail” we took…see my friend in blue ahead of me below?
Ok, not see off to the right in that pic below?
Yeah, that’s the waterfall.
What was that? You were expecting something bigger for all that work? Ha! So were we, but we sure had an adventure finding it!
Here’s a closer look after we scaled all the huge boulders with a little stream trickling below us to get there:
There is nothing like a good hike for good discussions, and I loved talking with these wise ladies through our little (that ended up to be big) adventure.
Bring on the fall hiking! We better keep this up!
I can’t believe these are phone pictures!
Looks like fun! Do you have other hikers snap a photo of your group or use a timer?
