~Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover~
There is debate on what this waterfall is actually called. Lion Slide Falls or Hatchet Creek Falls. I decided to go with Lion Slide because it sounds way cooler than the other. You decide.
John Muir considered the view from Eagle Peak "the most comprehensive view of all the views" from the north wall. Standing at an elevation of 7783 ft and is the highest of The Three Brothers.
Located 40 miles east of Chico, California. Rock creek offers multiple swimming holes with a natural water slide. This spot is perfect for a nice day trip to a relatively secluded swimming hole. If you continue to explore deeper into the creek you'll be rewarded with more spots to swim and cascading falls.
Gods bath is located deep in the Stanislaus National Forest. The closest town is Sonora, California. I hope you do not get car sick, this drive is a very windy one! If you have to pick up snacks or use the restroom, I would recommend stopping somewhere in town before you venture off into the forest.
At the beginning of the year, I was having a discussion with a good friend of mine, Matt, and he was telling me how he was proud of me going out and exploring the world going on adventures and doing with my dog
I have been on a mission to conquer the best swimming holes northern California has to offer. This adventure is about Seven falls not to be mistaken for the seven falls in Colorado Springs which is awesome by the way or seven falls in Santa Barbara. This swimming hole consisted of 7 plus waterfalls that plunge into their own swimming hole. Stunning emerald-green water, cliff jumping, and the roaring sounds of the waterfall was an incredible peaceful experience.
When do you ever get the chance to hike a tunnel? A tunnel that speaks volume of history and that allowed emigrants into California from the East. Yes, Donner Pass is named after the Donner Party. If you don't know anything about the Donner Party, click the link for a quick history lesson. I found out about this hike the night before, and immediately knew this was a must do hike! I did some research and the next morning I packed up Joose (my dog) and off we go, day trip with the pup
One of the best parts about living close to the bay area is the influx of outdoor activities whether it's a leisurely stroll through the presidio or grueling uphill hikes throughout the bay. Each with incredible views at the top or along the way. The bay area has it all. Hundreds if not thousands of trails with dozens of waterfalls throughout the vicinity. I compiled a short list of my favorite day hikes in the bay area. All within an hour drive from San Francisco. If it has a view, I'm there or it's on my list. Enjoy.
My buddy Jake hit me up one day telling me that we need to go on a hike or some sort of adventure after he noticed the cool sh!t I've been doing lately since I enjoy sharing my experiences via Facebookand IG. Your wish is my command sir!
