Three Sisters Falls

The hike [see alltrails.com | ihikesandiego.com | yelp.com] to the triple-waterfall known as Three Sisters Falls (near San Diego) isn’t super-long (4 miles round trip), but it is hot and hard! That being said, I think even inexperienced hikers could do it… They just have to bring lots of water, wear proper shoes, and be tough! We were dying going uphill on the way out because we were out of shape, and thanks to the never-ending drought there was not a ton of water flow, but we’re always glad to get some exercise, toughen up, and see new places!

Yosemite 2014: Vernal Falls, Cuties & Cairns

We went to Yosemite for the second time in August of 2014. The new thing for us this time was hiking up to Vernal Falls, which is actually quite difficult (but that’s all just the START of the hike all the way up to Half Dome). Vernal Falls was flowing pretty weakly, so there was no mist on the “Mist Trail”, but it made for a gorgeous rainbow. If you like what you see above and below, check out the rest of the photos on SmugMug. (more…)

Kaua’i: Waimea, Koke’e, Hanakapi’ai Falls

This is Kaua’i, “the Garden Island,” a place so beautiful that you kinda probably won’t even be able to handle it. This album contains photos of various lookouts off of Rte. 550 (Waimea Canyon Dr. & Koke’e Rd.), Awa’awapuhi Trail (one of the trails in Koke’e State Park, which leads to an absolutely glorious cliff lookout) & the Hanakapi’ai Falls Trail (on the North Shore).
