We spent the first and last days of our American Southwest Road Trip vacation last year in Las Vegas. There are so many things to do in the city that it can be overwhelming to decide how to spend your time. Drinking, eating, and gambling are obviously at the top of the list for things to do in the city. But there are so many more things to do. Here are a few suggestions on How To Spend 2 Days In Las Vegas.
It’s been raining the past two weekends, so that means that we haven’t been able to hike. We spent last weekend cleaning and decluttering, which was great, but I’m ready to get back to the mountain trails. Fingers crossed for sunny weather soon! But today, I’m going to share a few favorite finds for February!
Photo from 2016: Max Patch Mountain. One of the best views around. I’ve been planning to make a trip up there again soon, maybe in the spring when the flowers start to bloom. Check out my post about Max Patch for more photos + info about how to visit!
Last weekend was perfect, albeit chilly, for a winter hike. We decided on hiking the Spruce Flats Falls Trail in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was my first time hiking this trail and it was so much fun to explore a new part of The Smokies.
The Spruce Flats Falls trail is a relatively short and easy hike, totaling 2 miles round trip. It would be an excellent hike for beginners, kids, or even experienced hikers. There are also a lot of great photo opportunities.
It’s a new year, so I thought I’d try something new around here. (Because that’s what you do when a new year starts, right? I teased about starting this series in my goals for 2018 post here, if you want to check it out.) Once a month I will share my Favorite Finds. Mostly stuff I’m currently into, like things I’ve been listening to, watching, reading, cooking, etc. In addition, I will share a favorite picture that I’ve taken. I hope it is a short, fun post that is a little different than what I usually post. Enjoy my Favorite Finds: January 2018 edition!
Photo from 2010: Frozen Rainbow Falls Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I hiked this before I liked hiking and WORE TENNIS SHOES TO HIKE IN THE SNOW. Which makes me cringe to think of doing that now. We are hiking tomorrow and I hope there are pretty snowy scenes like this to photograph.
