Everyone has a hike that they love above all others. If you were to ask my oldest son he would pick Bridal Veil Falls. He was so amazed when we reached the falls that he called down to me "you have to see this!"
My youngest son, on the other hand, loved Heather Lake. He marveled at the snow covered mountains in August and the lake full of frogs.
I would have to say that Goat Lake was my favorite hike. The distance was an accomplishment at 10.5 miles and the lake was beautiful. However, it is hard to pick just one. Each hike has its own amazing aspects.
What is your favorite hike? I would love to hear from other states as well. Maybe I can add your hike to my Hike 12 in 2012 challenge.
