WOW!!! beautiful pics! i wish there were places that beautiful around here to hike to! i mean, i can find beauty even in lil polluted creeks that stink of sewage, but we really don't have much (close by) to really put a person in awe.

i think the only hiking i did this year was back & forth between the parking lot & the concert venues, lol.

^^^Getting a lot time in at Devil's Lake eh?

Palidon, I am going out on a limb here (not really) and say you are going to end up in Colorado in the next 5 years. Gee world class snowboarding and world class rockclimbing right out your door. What wouldn't you like about it?

killclimbz, you are a smart man. my dad's friend (who is give advice opposite of my dad's) moved west after he left the house and says he loved and thinks i'd have nothing to lose by moving out there. which i'm going to do. my dad wants to kick me out at 18, and whenever i have enough money i'm packing up and heading west. everything i love to do here is multiplied times 10 out west. can't wait!

and yes, we tend to head out there once or twice a week, and now i got my own harness, shoes, rope, belay and anchor gear i'm sure it will be more often.

Yeah, you would love it out here. Let's see 30-45 minutes from my house. Clear Creek Canyon, Golden Cliffs, Castlewood Canyon, Eldorado Canyon, Boulder Canyon, the Flatirons, just to name a few climbing areas. Shelf Road/Penitente are great for weekend trips. The South Platte and Devil's Head to get away from crowds. 1,000's of climbs within an hour. I normally climb all summer. This new house thing kind of derailed that, but I'll be back at it next year. I am trying to make sure I have a snow season.

I love the Canyon, and the places around it. I wish I had pics of when I went. Some of the falls around there are amazing, and the hiking is always fun.

life IS good.

summer isnt really my season to hike. I like to take my dogs with me when i hike, them being boxers dont do well outside in the heat so i make most of my hikes in the spring and fall. i mostly hit up the appalachian trail and a few state parks here in my area. i did a few short trails with them this summer at a local park but only because there is a nice big creek there that they can play in to get cooled off.

we are planning on hiking the el yunque rainforest in puerto rico on our honeymoon at the beginning of Oct. hopefully pics to follow.
