Skull Crack Trail – Huntsville, Utah – Group hike with And Shes Dope Too

I spent the weekend camping, hiking, and SUPing in northern Utah with 200 other women, including my sister who flew in from Detroit!
This was my first time hiking in Northern Utah, like the rest of the state it was beautiful.
I loved being in all the green, but couldn’t help but wonder how much more beautiful this area will be once the colors start to change.
This is an area worthy of more exploration for sure.

Mt Ogden – Ogden, Utah – Group hike with And Shes Dope Too

I didn’t plan on hiking Mt Ogden, its difficulty rating and high elevation intimidated me. I was planning on the easier Ogden Overlook hike. I changed my mind at the last minute.
It wasn’t easy, but I made it to the top! I kept reminding myself that this was not the hardest hike I’ve ever done… thank you Deer Creek Trail
Once upon a time I was asked who I would most like to hike with, dead or alive. My answer was my sister. I feel so honored to be standing next to her on the completion of her first summit!
Sometimes you need to stop and look at how far you’ve come.
