  • New Year. New Office. More Blogs (soon).

    Welcome to 2021! Amongst all of the craziness of the infamous 2020, we embarked on building a new house. You haven’t heard anything from Hike 734 at all because of that. Now that we are getting close to completing the house, I’ll be moving into my new office and will start editing the pile of […]

  • Mirror Lake Loop and Snow Creek Trail

    In Yosemite National Park, Mirror Lake draws many visitors due to its very accessible trail and the chance to see Half Dome perfectly reflected in the water. The loop around this beautiful valley up and down Tenaya Creek is a popular one with Yosemite’s visitors. Very few hardy souls brave the steep switchbacks along Snow […]

  • Barred Owl in Glacier

    The journey is often the destination. We sometimes lose site of that as we hammer on to the lake, the summit, or the waterfall. The highlights, however, can often come as we’re heading to that “perfect social media spot”. We headed out on a mid-November day with Huckleberry Lookout as our rough “destination”. We weren’t […]

  • Next up, Rocky Mountain National Park

    Well I just came back from my first trip down to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. What a beautiful (and massive) place! After hiking for two weeks straight, I know that I’m only scratching the surface. I’m not just arbitrarily down there, however, I’m starting work on my seventh day hike map guide. I’ve […]

  • Granite Park Chalet Bike and Hike 2019

    With Going-to-the Sun Road in Glacier National Park closed to cars, but open to bikes, we got a little creative and hiked up to Granite Park Chalet after biking to the Loop. We found a stunning array of wildflowers while birds serenaded us up into the alpine landscape. It was a Saturday morning so we […]

  • Numa Ridge Lookout – Spring 2019

    May in Glacier National Park doesn’t have many opportunities to get into the higher elevation. Numa Ridge Lookout is one glorious exception. Kristen and I were able to hike all the way up to the lookout with snow just near the top. We were treated to flowers, birds, and epic views. The forecast for the […]

  • Table Mountain

    Table Mountain boasts incredible views of the Grand Tetons. It’s summit sits on the boundary of the Jedediah Smith Wilderness and Grand Teton National Park, but the trail itself comes in from the Idaho side and is entirely in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness area. Regardless, for fans of Grand Teton National Park, it’s a hike […]

  • Blacktail Butte

    Blacktail Butte in Grand Teton National Park is a forested hill sticking out in the middle of Jackson Hole. This hike gives some really interesting vantages of the area, especially to the south towards the Gros Ventre River and Gros Ventre Range. Blacktail Butte isn’t on the radar of many hiking books. We stumbled across […]

  • Spring Hiking up Glacier View

    In the early season, I can’t wait to get out hiking, especially into the high country of Glacier National Park. The deep snow keeps me from doing so, but there are a few sneaky-great options like the hike up Glacier View along the Demers Ridge Trail in the Flathead National Forest. It features early season […]
