Here’s a photo I took while hiking into the Titcomb Basin of the Wind River Range. There were so many lakes to see along the way, each with its own unique view of the mountains! While passing, I always find myself pondering about how much I wish to return to camp at each lake and take in its unique beauty from sunrise to sunset. 8/20/2017

View of Kings Canyon National Park from my 2016 John Muir Trail hike. The photo here was taken just before reaching Bull Frog Lake on the way up to Kearsarge Lakes.
I took this photo on my way to Lake Agnes during a Memorial weekend trek on the Superior Hiking Trail. The entire day’s hike was shrouded in thick mist which gave the trail a mysterious atmosphere. Strange low-pitched thumping noises could be heard throughout the foggy woods – it was the call of the Ruffled Grouse.
I took this photo at the end of a long and soggy day on the Superior Hiking Trail. It had been pouring all day, but the rain magically stopped as soon as I stumbled into my campsite. The forest came alive with golden sun rays pouring through the endless moss-riden trees. This trail is located along the Lake Superior shoreline of Minnesota and is well known to backpackers.
