Adams Canyon

Last week I hiked Adams Canyon. I have done this hike 3 times now! It is really one of my favorites. 
You start right off the back with switchbacks, they are loaded with sand! It would make an awesome trail run! 
I stole this AWESOME collage from my friend Julies blog because this picture totally summed up the hike!!!
 This was the waterfall we hiked to! AMAZING SO PRETTY!!!! My favorite hikes all lead to a BEAUTIFUL waterfall the super neat thing about this on is how close you can get to the actual waterfall. We pushed daylight getting to the fall however we were not about to get that close and not meet the destination!
We passed several smaller falls along the way!
Yup I was scaling the rocks pushing daylight!!!! It was beyond fun :)
The BEAUTIFUL sunset :) That is the advantage of the later starting hikes!
We finished the hike and enjoyed the view on the way down, of the sunset and city lights.

What do your favorite hikes lead to?

Favorite hikes have to be either in Arches National Park or Grand Canyon for sure.

Have you done Stewart Falls hike up above Sundance? That is a beautiful one, especially in the fall, and also leads to a waterfall. I like hiking anywhere that has flowers or redrock or both!

How beautiful!! That looks so fun! I don't know of any good hiking spots around me, but I'm sure there are some. Now that I've dropped some lbs and I'm exercising, I'd really enjoying tackling a hike!!
