Queen’s Garden/Navajo Loop Trail, Bryce Canyon National Park

Hike 24 of my 52 Hike Challenge was one of the highlights of the trip so far, and is widely known as the “World’s Best 3-Mile Hike”. Welcome to the Queens-Navajo Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park. This hike begins at Sunrise Point (or you can start at Sunset Point and follow the Rim Trail to do a complete loop).

52 Hike Challenge – Hike 18 – Spearfish Canyon Roughlock Falls

On our drive from Chicago to our first nomadic “home”, Salt Lake City, I had a little bit of time to explore during our stay in Spearfish, South Dakota.

Easy, flat, fast and incredible payoff for very little work. This trail had almost anything you could want in a…
