Hello guys, this weekend I took my good co worker with me to Lewis Creek Trail in Oakhurst to see Corlieu Falls. It was beautiful and the running waterfall was our tranquility to rejuvenate our soul. She loved it and was hoping we can do an all day hike on our next adventure. Check out my full review of this trail here.

My weekend consisted of family reunion and a HOT mini hike with my toddlers. We visited my family in Oroville, California. Roughly four hours to get there. It was my cousin’s baby shower. She is expecting a baby boy in July. I’m so excited for her journey to motherhood. She will love and enjoy every moment of it. It was wonderful to see everyone, however I would like to share our mini… Read More

For Memorial weekend I took my toddlers out to Yosemite National Park. I thought it would be a fun experience to try the Lower Yosemite Falls loop. The weather was great. It was cloudy, breezy, partial sunny and fresh. My children loved it. I loved it. It was a busy weekend. I have got to say that my toddlers does not have a sense of going one way direction. It made it… Read More

This weekend I wanted to take the time to spend a beautiful memory with my two toddlers. We went to Millerton Lake State Recreation Area: South Shore Area. It is roughly 20 miles from Fresno. There was an entrance fee of ten dollars. It was the prefect day to spend quality time with families and friends. The recreation was full of people and the water level was moderately high. I water was… Read More

This weekend I reviewed Way-of-the-Mono trail in Bass Lake. It is rated easy and is roughly 1.2 mile. The weather was beautiful. Sunny and breezy. Starting off the trail was a bit moderate until I reached an overlook. It was a great view to Bass Lake. However, it saddened me that the wild fire had reached there. I saw burned trees. From the look of the burn trees, it looked like it… Read More

The original plan was to go to Moro Rock at Sequoia National Park, however I checked the weather and the Alerts on the National Park website. It required vehicles to have tire chains due to icy road. It was free entrance to National Park week and it was a perfect time to go. I do not know how to properly install tire chains, so there was a last minute change to hike… Read More

My morning hike on the Pincushion trail was always a tough one. However, it is by far the right trail to train for Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. Each time I look up the trail, I push myself to keep going. Even if it was baby steps all the way through, I kept going. Arriving to the top of the mountain trail was rewarding! The view was nice and the feeling… Read More

A few days ago, I led a hike to Eastman Lake at the Wildlife Management Area. The trail is located in the Madera county, west side of Eastman Lake. The trail was right along the lake. I would rate this trail moderate. Not too hard and not to easy. It was just about right. The trail was short. I would say it’s roughly 2 miles. What I love about this trail was… Read More
