Hike Mt Baldy | Dog Friendly Hiking in SoCal | Mt San Antonio Summit

Hiking Mt San Antonio (Mt Baldy) is one of those experiences where, as you doing it, you’re questioning your life choices of climbing mountain for fun.  But then it all make complete sense when you reach that summit. Oh that glorious summit! At 10,064 feet this is a beast of a hike. With varies trail option available and 4,000 feet in elevation gain, this is by no means a beginners hike.  Know your hiking ability and be prepared before taking…

Bedford Peak | Hiking Cleveland National Forest | Hiking Trails Silverado California

Bedford Peak | Hiking Cleveland National Forest | Hiking Trails Silverado California

Bedford Peak was not a hiking spot I was really aware of till I hiked it today. It seems it’s an unknown hidden gem of a hike in Orange County, California. One where you kinda forget your in Southern California…well till you spot Mt. Baldy in the distance (that mountain haunts me I swear?). We were told the hike would be roughly 7 miles, but we did get off track a bit and ended up hiking about 9 mile. Which the Tiny…

Inspiration Point Yosemite National Park | Hiking Inspiration Point Yosemite National Park | Hiking Yosemite National Park

Welp, I think we can all agree that this view is rather beautiful. Yosemite National Park is one of those places that has beauty to offer visitors year round. But, one of the benefits of visiting the park in the winter is it being less populated…because well yeah it’s slightly freezing and the snow can make for difficult driving conditions. But that snow also makes for a magical fairytale setting where you can’t help but feel like you’re in a…

Limestone Canyon | The Grand Canyon of Orange County | The Sinks

Limestone Canyon | The Grand Canyon of Orange County | The Sinks

Hitting the trails at Limestone Canyon on access day. The Grand Canyon of Orange County Confession: When I’m back home it can be hard for me to get motivated to do new things. I don’t know why this is, I’m so good at adventuring when I’m out of my element. Maybe it’s cause I absolutely love the home I have built for my tiny family, or cause my bed is extra comfy, or maybe it’s the simple fact that I…

Hike So Hard: Buckeye Trail

Hike So Hard: Buckeye Trail

For any of you avid hikers out there you’re going to totally laugh at me when I say this, but I thought crampons were a joke…I really did…till today. Till I fell so far behind my hiking group because I could barely walk on the iced over trail and they were just happy and merry gliding along at what seemed like 35 miles a freakin hour with their crampons. Their hike, inspired my new ice dancing career and a ton…

Hike So Hard: South Chargin Reservation 

Hike So Hard: South Chargin Reservation 

Lemon’s first snow hike and she made in back in one piece! Thank freakin goodness! I was worried about how the tiny monster would do in the snow and I’m here to report back that we finally found Lemon’s weakness. Turns out the pooch is a total freeze baby just like moi. (More on that later) We headed to the Cleveland Metroparks South Chagrin Reservations to check out two separate trails: Squaw Rock Loop Trail: A 0.6 mile loop hike bordering the…

Hike So Hard: Devil’s Bridge Edition

Hike So Hard: Devil’s Bridge Edition

So most of you don’t really have any idea how much of an actual beast Lemon is. I know I know,  you think I must be making this up for goodness sake she’s 5.6 lbs. Well my friends she’s crazy, just plain nuts. When we hike she starts to get angry about the pace (it’s just way too slow for her adventurous soul) So she bites at my ankles, shoes laces, and socks till the speed is more her pace….

Hike So Hard: Cathedral Rock Edition

Wow!!!  This is why I leave my home, my friends, and all the fun stuff going on to venture into the unknown …for days like this!  Let’s hike Cathedral Rock!!! Cathedral Rock impressed me greatly, I haven’t done a hike like this before. It’s a super short hike, only about 1.4 miles but the trail just has you crawling up the whole time.   You’ll start by parking in the Cathedral Rock Trailhead parking lot and then locate the Cathedral…

Sedona Escape

Sedona Escape

Current backyard view… I’ve been exploring Sedona for a couple days now and wanted to share some of my favorite spots with ya’ll. Trailhead Tea This came to me as a recommendation since I’m a tea fanatic. They have over 130 loose teas to offer. You can buy tea by the ounce or sample the tea right there.  I tried the Sky Mountain Blackberry black tea as shown below! It was delish! The staff was extremely helpful and very kind….

Hike So Hard: Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte Edition

Hike So Hard: Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte Edition

Howdy peeps… I’m currently exploring Arizona. Started the journey this past Wednesday and drove through the night. Lemon didn’t sleep a wink on the way which was rather frustrating! Decided our first stop would be Sedona.  Got here around 5am which has provided me with total lack of sleep and made it difficult to get rested up to explore. I think The Bubbly Mermaid finally got her groove back today!!! Yay! Girlfriend needs her beauty sleep. First thing on the…
