Mobius Arch Trail Review

Hello everyone! I want to give you an update to where I had hiked to three weeks ago. I am very excited that after this review, you would probably want to check it out. I went to hike on the Mobius Arch Trail. It is located in Lone Pine, Ca in Alabama Hills Recreation Center. This trail is popular for its arch which frames Mt. Whitney. Click here for the Map of the trail.

The Mobius Arch Trail was easy. I mean, it was very easy that the trail was kid and dog friendly. The trail is a little over half a mile. It took 1 hour to complete because I stopped to take pictures and why not? It was very beautiful! The massive rocks that was over 100 feet tall , and the popular Mobius Arch. I could not get enough of it.

This is a desert terrain. It was a bit different terrain for me because I have never seen a dry flat place with shrubs and some type of Cactus then the rock formations. Then looking at the rocks reminded me of Pinnacles National Park. It had to be. Going to a different terrain made me appreciate desert terrains. Weather it is a Coastal terrain or Forest to Foot Hills or Preservation, to Desert or Canyons. I think there are beauty in it. There are so much I can learn from the habitat such as the soil, the rocks, the trail, trees, wildflowers and weather.

What I love about this trail was that it is suitable for toddlers, children and pets, with supervision of course. It was easy. They could easily hike it. The trail was marked by Ostrich egg size rocks and it was easy to follow it. Another amazing thing would be the huge boulders. Again, I have to say that it reminded me of the rocks at Pinnacles National Park. Then to my left, there are mountains of snow in the Sierra Nevada Mountain. It was pretty cool how I would look at the right and it was completely different scenery.

What I do not like about the trail would be leaning against the rock. They are painful. For some reason, the rocks looked smooth, but when touching it, boy it was painful to lean against it. I did not bring gloves so that was fun.

I would recommend this trail to anyone who does not want a long hike. This was very short. Also, the trail was not too hard. I did not even have to use a lot of my muscles for this. Perfect for anyone who does not want a challenge. Do bring your children to this trail. The trail is perfect for them. They would enjoy the hike.

Please do keep in mind that we should keep all our recreation center, National Parks, State Parks,and Preservation litter free. I have seen trash on this trail and I hate to see our Parks dirty.

Multnomah Falls Family Mini Hike

Hello Friends! I hope you all had wonderful Easter. Let me tell you, I’ve been so busy since the beginning of the year that I didn’t even have a little time to post anything up. It seriously made the year go by faster. So I want to thank you all for catching up with me.

So, a few weeks ago we drove up to Oregon. We had a chance to see the Multnomah Falls. It was so beautiful and wet. I couldn’t believe how green it was than California. The hike up to the bridge was a bit of a climb. It is suitable for stroller and wheelchair. The hike there was less than a quarter mile. The green moss on the rock wall was beautiful. I just had to take a photo of it.

I would recommend anyone to check this out. It was a very easy hike. Totally great for kids.

Recap of 2018 & Plans!

Happy New Year Hikers!

I hoped you all have been well. It has been too long since my last post. I am so excited for 2019. I have many new ideas I want to share with you all, but before I do, I want to  give you a recap of my 2018.

2018 was an amazing year. I started out hiking the trails in the foothills and I eventually ventured out of the City. My confidence grew and more friendship was built. I thanked everyone who supported me in my journey and continue to share my experience with everyone. My best hiking trail was Point Lobos Preservation. It was beautiful. Even though it was an easy trail, I would love to go again. If you have not read my blog post click here .


Then my toughest hike was High Peak Trail from Pinnacles National Park. It was all worth it til the end. You can read my post here.


My largest group I lead would be 30 Church Members on Labor Day to Lewis Creek in Oakhurst. It was a success.



I also enjoyed hiking with my toddlers. It was a challenged but it was worth it every bit of it. You can read it here.


Anyways, outdoors is always my favorite place to be. 2019 will be my wonderful year to travel, hike more and do more reviews. I want to share my experiences with you all and hoping you do the same too. I love to hear your trip hiking to anywhere. Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Hiking!

Where Is The Center Point In California?

Hello friends! It has been a while since my last post, but I want you to know that I have many things to share with you. Before I get to where is the center point in California, be sure to get your 10% off PROMO Code for Bear In Mind Log Books. Read here for a fantastic experience to keep a log of your hikes.

Anyways, the center point of California is actually in North Fork. That, you guys, is the middle of California. From Northern California to Southern California, North Fork is the actual center point. I even have a photo of the Longitude and Latitude coordinates of where center point is. Isn’t that neat?


The trail was simply short. My children were able to hike it. I would say the trail was roughly one hundred feet. There was a wooden staircase and at the top of the little hill there it looked like a plaque with the exact coordinates on the stone. Pretty cool right? My children enjoyed their short hike. We went up the stairs so many times. I think it was one of those days that we decided to enjoy what was around us. I would highly recommend anyone with toddlers or children to come visit the exact center to California. They would love it.

Until then, happy hiking!
