Places where I've hiked

I went through Colorado, Utah, and now I'm in Washington. Here's where I hiked!

Buena Vista, CO

I actually forget the name of the trail, but I swear it's around the town of Buena Vista. Probably 30 minutes away?

Lost Lake at Cottonwood Pass, CO

This was my first hike at such a high elevation. It was 11k feet up I think and I remember just stopping every 5 minutes because of the thin air.

Radium Hot Springs, CO

My Couchsurfing host took us to a hot spring near Denver. It was fucking cold out, so we didn't leave. We turned into prunes.

Great Sand Dunes, CO

Then right after that we went to the Great Sand Dunes! I never expected sand dunes to exist in the US—I've always thought it was only found in Africa or the middle east.

Rattlesnake Trail, UT

This was my first hike in Utah. It gave me a good bird's-eye view of Salt Lake City.

Antelope Island, UT

Oh man this was probably the most intense hike I've done so far. My friend and I hiked up to the very top and it took all day. I also didn't have hiking shoes so walking was kinda shitty. Loved the view and the bison!

Dead Horse Point State Park, UT

This canyon was gorgeous! It looked like it was straight out of a magazine.

Arches National Park: Devil's Garden

This was a pretty easy hike, and it was at the very end of Arches National Park.

Arches National Park: Delicate Arch

This is the most popular arch in the park. I thought it would be tiny because the pictures that I've seen of it don't have anything right beside it. It was huge!

Rattlesnake Trail, WA

This was my first hike in my trip where it was raining. It was an easy hike, but I was sweating the whole time because my jacket wasn't breathable. So I wasn't getting wet in the rain but rather getting wet in my own sweat.

Snoqualmie Falls, WA

I tried doing the Airbnb experiences and our host took us to this amazing waterfall.
