I only have about 4 hikes remaining for my next goal to have all parts of all the trails of the park systems actually documented within this blog. Due to the winter road closures, I won't be able to complete them until the spring. Once that happens, I'll have every section of every trail in the park system documented within this blog.
My hiking experience includes easy and difficult hikes, as well as short and long distances. It includes all seasons, from summer heat-waves to brutal winter hikes on frozen lakes, and everything in-between. In the blog are hikes during snowstorms, surprise thunderstorms, rattlesnake encounters, tick infestations, and a torn meniscus.
Trails are often rerouted, and I purchased a new 2013 map edition so I can have an outline of the latest trails to the best of my knowledge. Oftentimes I slightly veer off a few feet from the actual trail. My criteria for following a trail is where the main path of the trail is still visible.
Overall it has been an amazing experience, and it's great to have so many trails and scenery within such close proximity. I'd like to give a shout out to all my dedicated hiking partners over the years.
