6/5

A great morning hike. Get out and enjoy the morning air while avoiding a lot of the crowds that take this popular trek in the afternoon

must do

This is a great afternoon adventure.. bring a couple inter-tubes to chill on in the water after you get your fix of jumping off the boulders.

5 stars without a doubt

If you decide to hike the entire lake (and not cheat by taking the ferry across), the falls are perfect after hiking several miles. They're very impressive and that cool breeze feels great!

brings inter-tubes

Bought some $5 inter-tubes at Walmart.... worth it. Camped at Jenny Lake and went tubing and chilled on the lake every evening.

beautiful views

Hiked this as part of the whole Jenny Lake trail. Great, easy, family-friendly hike. Must do in Teton NP!

alright views

If you cheat and take the boat shuttle, I'd recommend the views and mile spur to the overlook. If you hiked around the whole lake like us, Inspiration point just added mileage to the hike in my opinion. Definitely check out Hidden Falls!!

Great experience

If you plan on camping here during the weekend, get here early. We got a campsite for the July 4th weekend (first come first serve) and got a campsite by 6:45 AM... pretty sure they were all sold out around 7:30. Once you get a site though you won't regret it. a few hundred feet to the lake and Jenny Lake Trail.. You couldn't beat it. Paid $28/night

Escape from the dunes

After hiking up the dunes and getting sand in about every crevice of my body, Zapata falls was a nice little escape to cool down, Still iced over Memorial Day weekend.

Am I in Colorado?

One of the most unique, relaxing hikes I've been on. It honestly feels like you're in the tropics... Capturing the cascading falls on the way up was a blast; must do.

Great views

Great 360 degree views of Pike National Forest. There were a lot of people on this trail for being so remote but an awesome day hike. Definitely spend some time in the tower with Billy who's been tending to the tower for 33 years, he's a legend.

Lived up to the hype

This little adventure was everything I expected, seemed unreal walking up to the shore of the lake. Came during "off season" in early May. Definitely recommended, avoid the crowds, and still get some color from the Aspens just blooming.

Beautiful Scenery

Awesome cross between the green covered mountains and dessert terrain of the valley. This was an awesome, quick hike; make sure to stop by the visitors center to catch a map and pair it with a few others in the park!

Getaway from the Hoover Dam crowds

My second time to the Hoover Dam area I was looking for a little more adventure than the first time visiting the touristy Hoover Dam. Escape to Goldstrike! Awesome hike, that was a good challenge and adventure. Loved the Ropes set up along the trail to assist climbing over the boulders and creveses.

A southwest must do

This was everything I expected. Booked my tour with Navajo Antelope Canyon Tours and they treated us really well for being such a busy tourist attraction in the area. Free calendar at the end!

Overlooked hike and park near Springs

Awesome hike if you're looking to get out of the mountains for the day. Sweet caves and rock formations to explore and photograph. Definitely worth the drive from Springs or surrounding area!

Must do during the Fall

Like a lot of hikes in Shenandoah NP this is a must do in Fall. Great views throughout the hike, and easily doable in an afternoon.

no regrets

I got up every morning this past trip to Maine to watch the sunrise, Old Orchard was one of my destinations because of the pier. Bring your hammock and come early to hang, or go for a quick run on the beach after, such an awesome little town.

Morning Photography

Headed there for sunrise and was surprised at the number of photographers there (around 10). Although it was overcast, the fog and clouds set the tone and made a nice backdrop.

bucket list adventure

Visiting Yellowstone and Old Faithful is simply put a bucket list adventure. The park has endless scenery and Old Faithful surprisingly lived up to it's hype. Watch it go off with thousands of others waiting on the boardwalks then be sure to check out the Old Faithful Lodge before leaving.

views

The Teton Range is indescribable to anyone venturing from the East for the first time. Definitely some awesome shots here, when we visited last summer, the peaks were cloud covered, but just as beautiful.
