Exploring the Seven Pillars Nature Preserve in Indiana
I love to find new nature preserves that are not too far from me with awesome geological formations. The Seven Pillars Nature Preserve hosts some interesting formations along the Mississenwa river near Peru Indiana. There is actually a 1.8-mile trail in the preserve as well that I did not do on this day. It was a beautiful Autumn day and the leaves looked spectacular and the river was flowing quickly. On this trip, I am also using my new Sony a6600 camera. I also used my GoPro Hero 8, and my DJI Spark to get the awesome flyover video. This nature preserve is not very big but it is great for families. They even have portable toilets and a fire ring. This area was inhabited by the Miami Indians and this nature preserve pays tribute to them as well.

A Day Hike to a Reflection Lake in Idaho
Nestled in the Sawtooth Mountains near the town of Ketchum, Idaho, Lower Norton Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. Hiking in the Ketchum/Sun Valley area means that you will tackle some decent elevation gain and this hike is no different. At 5 miles round trip and 1,400' in elevation gain it is a good challenge before hitting the brewery in town.

2 Days Exploring and Camping by an Abandoned Pond
Well, another pond exploration in the books, and this one I had company. A few of my camping buddies joined me for this one. We found a nearby homestead foundation, ate great camp meals, had wonderful campfire chats, and overall it was a very good trip. This is another pond in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness that was either built by the Civilian Conservation Corps or was part of some of the original families that settled the area and tried to make a go of farming. We had great sunny weather on Saturday of this trip and it was nice to have my friends with me.
The Best Hike in Moab, Utah
While most come for the national parks and epic mountain biking, hikers will not be disappointed. There are a few hikes in the area that are great for everyone, dogs included (but remember a lot of water and booties on hot days). Our favorite hike to date is Corona Arch Trail.
Exploring and Camping by an Abandoned Pond
I have not been able to get out on an adventure for quite a while and even longer for a solo. I decided it was time to change that so I went in search of another abandoned pond out at the Charles C Deam Wilderness. I also got a new cloud71 hammock, a new peak refuel meal, and a brand new iPhone 13 pro to try out. That had all the makings of a video so I set out to bushwhack to an old forgotten civilian conservation corps pond. Had a great overnighter.

Oregon's 5 Best Hikes to Lakes
Hiking to a lake in the mountains is just about one of my favorite things. The challenge, the beautiful hike and the reward of a lake (alpine or not) with jagged mountains towering over. No matter how much my thighs burn and my lungs tighten, I never tire of it, nor do I even think, this is my last one.

Hawaii Travel: Ka'ena Point State Park is one of Oahu's most beautiful historical coastal trails
Ka'ena Point State Park is one of Oahu's most beautiful coastal hiking trails. It is one that offers not only spectacular ocean views, amazing wildlife, and history. The Peoples of Hawaii always make great strides to preserve/protect their parks and natural resources for all of us to enjoy. The late 1800's there was a need for a railroad in this area along the coast. Transportation of people and goods was necessary between Honolulu and the sugar plantations in Kahuku and Waialua. During World War II, the U.S. Army used the trains for access to Kaena Point Military Reservation. By the 1920s-1930s, the train was used for weekend fisherman excursions. Wildlife: Enjoy the sight of the large birds called Albatross that migrate here to nest and mate. The sea lions find their perfect comfy spot on the beach to take a nap.
