Trekkin Tuesday's: It's been awhile.

Those of you who browse my blog, know that I have been a bit absent for the last few weeks. This is due to the fact that I injured my hand and wrist at work so it has been difficult for me to hike as much as I like to,  take photos, let alone type a blog post. I am happy to say that I am on the mend, which is a relief. I hate not being 100%.

Lets talk about some hikes, shall we.
White Pine and Red Pine Lake are some of the most popular hikes in Little Cottonwood Canyon. On any given weekend, you will always run into another person on these trails. One, because they are both well maintained trails and two, they both get you to beautiful alpine lakes without taking all day.

White Pine Lake is 9 miles round trip and has some beautiful views. Every hike does.

Fall colors are changing daily.

Reflection from the lake.

This is a popular ski shoot in the winter called Lake Shoot.

Red Pine Lake cuts off of the White Pine trail and continues through a forest terrain. This is an easy (or moderate depending on who you talk to) hike that is ruffly 7 miles round trip. This is a favorite hike that Heinz & I like to do any season.

If you have never hiked to White or Red Pine Lake and live close the SLC, I highly recommend both of them. Beauty is so close, we are so lucky.

So that's it for now. I'm very excited to get back on my normal schedule and bang out a view more fall hikes before the snow hits. Until then have a great week!
