One of my all-time favorite hikes! This one was tough because it was so uphill. There were a lot of twists and turns, But with every turn came a different gorgeous view to look at.

But We Were Dummies!

We only planned to do a short hike, Not this crazy brutal 11-mile hike. But once we saw the trail we decided to do it anyway, we figured we'd turn back at some point. But I wanted to see the waterfall that was at the end of the trail, So I encouraged us to push forward despite our discomfort.
We only brought up half a Powerade, Which goes to show how unprepared we were!
We kept pressing on; I got to the point I was so thirsty that I was looking forward to seeing the waterfall so I could get a drink.







There were so many gorgeous meadows and so many flowers; There was no human activity in sight. I love being in the middle of nature like this.

Finally, we started seeing a stream of water When we both felt there was no way we could continue going forward. But unfortunately, the waterfall was a lot higher than we anticipated. Sadly he could no longer continue. So I went up alone as high as I could to find us some "somewhat" clean running water, Which I filled our bottle. Sadly we didn't get to see the waterfall, and we'll have to come back when we are more prepared.

We drank the water from the river, Which was cold, Crystal clear and delicious. We then focused our energy on getting back down. I'm sad that I'm not super well versed in the plant life, So we could find something to eat on the way down. Sadly the wild thimbleberries have yet to bloom.

Shame it was tough from being unprepared but Super Kaylin must press on to save the hike with awesomeness along the way! Hehe :)
That is one big 11 mile hike though.

Awww Thank you hehe!! Right? It was tiring as hell hahha.

This is a sight for the "EYES" just a Beautiful place to be Hiking. Thank You for sharing it with US @kaylinart.............

Beautiful place and nature is the most wonderful space that exists. Beautiful photographs.

There's no doubt that when you set a goal, there's nothing to stop us, I'm sure that's what happened to you on the walk. You didn't expect it to be so extensive, but your adventurous spirit won you over. I think it has been worth it after all to capture such beautiful images on the road, plus the good sunny day I can appreciate! What a pity they couldn't make it to the waterfall, it would surely be a spectacle!

I got to the point I was so thirsty that I was looking forward to seeing the waterfall so I could get a drink.

Yes, that was silly. I love hike like this as well. There is this place in the mountains just about 2 hours drive from where I live. Itโ€™s called Mohonk Mountain House trail. Itโ€™s about 12 miles of trail we take altogether, so itโ€™s approximately similar to yours. Well... I hope you get to the waterfall next time and of course better prepared.

What a very adventurous trip. Very exciting. I may want to try it someday. :)

Its been so long since seeing any green around here, these are truly wonderful photos! You're quite lucky :) I could live in a cabin in a place like that with no problem!

Awesome photography and wonderful day of hiking. Iโ€™d get a life straw for drinking that river water..... LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for Hiking, Camping, Travel, and Emergency Pr... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006QF3TW4/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_uNXHBbFH6FKZ6
