So now that I have a blog and take my camera places I plan to document our hikes and camping trips this season.
To start off the 2012 season I made this sign with a new take on our logo. Adam and I call our collective selves "Atom and the Molecule", hence the atom heads on the hikers (more on our moniker in a future post).
The "Eternal Flame" trail is a popular and easy hike in the area so we planned to get there early to avoid the crowds. It can be pretty muddy and sometimes slippery as the trail heads down the river bed and it drives me crazy that I see so many people hiking it in flip flops or fancy open toed sandals. But, then I have to remember to just be happy that so many people are choosing to be outside and moving rather than sitting on the couch watching tv, even if they don't know how to properly dress for the hike.

The weather was perfect.

The "Eternal Flame" is at the end of the trail and it's actually just a neat little natural gas leak in the shale rock framed by this here waterfall:
Apparently it's not "eternal" and you should always bring your lighter in case you have to light it when you get there.
Happy hiking season everyone!!
