Kris and I were too juiced about finally hiking up to Cataract Falls. We have been trying to go for weeks but the weather hasn’t been right. So this passed Sunday, we were ready. Weather was beautiful, packed and ready to go, it was a quick drive, and BOOM! We were so molded. We started driving up the hill where the trail would begin but the gate was closed off due to rainstorms happening around the falls. We would have had to hike 4 miles just to start the trail. The trail was already 8 miles. So 16 miles there and back plus the extra 8 miles there and back to start the trail. Basically too much! We were definitely butt hurt. Especially Kris. We have been looking forward to doing that hike and it is always something in our way literally. Even though his attitude was bringing the trip down, I refused to waste a beautiful day and hiking with my love. So we pulled over and I told him we are going to find another trail near by. He still seemed apprehensive about it and still disappointed but I didn’t have time for that. We were going on a hike !
So luckily I found a hiking trail about 10 mins down the hill from Cataract Falls. And it turned out to be one of the dopest hikes ever!
