Late start, even later finish

Peak SummitedMount SizerTrailheadCoe HeadquartersThanks to the traffic on my way down to Mt Sizer, I got a really late start today – and even later finish, because I managed to take the wrong trail and ended up hiking some extra miles.

Hiking Divas #5 Intense Inclines

Peak SummitedMount SizerTrailheadHenry Coe State Park at 9100 E. Dunn Ave.Arduous without a doubt. It never seemed to get easier. Glad there was tree cover and I saw at least 12 deer along the way.

Oh Man, Mount Sizer

Peak SummitedMount SizerTrailheadMonument TrailGroupGirls Who HikeThe hike to Mount Sizer was definitely an experience. The “Short Cut” was indeed intense. Poverty Flat was probably the least excruciating of the trails. When I first looked up the reviews on the trail loop many people suggested to bring walking poles. I thought to myself I don't need […]
