First off, I need to explain that this page is not for the hardened hiker. If you’re looking for day/week/month long hikes, thank you for coming but this page is not for you. I wish you fun out there!

The picture above is from the top of the Havasu Falls Trail. The most exerting hike I’ve done (& probably ever will do).

It was a wonderful experience and the waterfall rewards at the end were simply beyond words.

However, lets be real, I’m not you’re average hiker. Most of my ‘hikes’ are going to be 1-4 miles 🙂

What I can promise is an honest account of each hike/trail from your average girls point of view 🙂

I’m not a fit chick. You won’t see me bouncing around with an attractive, healthy glow. Neither am I a couch potato. I am used to a work out, I just don’t always look so hot when I’m out there working up a sweat along the trail!

You’ll need to famialiarise yourself with my own special descriptive vocabulary ~ see below!
