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.

It was wonderful to see everyone, however I would like to share our mini… Read More

From the look of the burn trees, it looked like it… 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.

The view was nice and the feeling… Read More
