30-Before-30: Take a Hike

Hiking always brings back good memories of time in Girl Scouts as kid so it was an easy choice to add as one of my 30 things. On our mountain vacation in Wyoming last week we got to take several wonderful hikes, all over the top compared to Texas trails.
My new favorite hikes:

Taggart Lake Trail at Grand Teton National Park (3.2 miles) : an easy walk through an alpine forest with beautiful views of the snow-covered Tetons ending at a small pristine lake tucked in the hills
Glacier Mountain Trail in the Shoshone National Forest (2 miles) : a vertical trail through pretty red rocks and trees with fabulous views of rolling hills and mountains - plus we had to drive 7 miles on gravel through the Fitzpatrick Wilderness to get to the trailhead, which ended up being an adventure in itself.
Tower Falls Trail in Yellowstone National Park (1.2 miles) : a steep but easy walk through thick trees and down a valley along the Yellowstone River
26 down, 4 to go...
