Hiking with the Littles | Grotto Falls Trail

Hi there!

One of the things I was most excited about when I found out we were moving to Utah was the hiking! I was so pumped to be able to spend more time in the great outdoors without being eaten alive by mosquitoes or dripping sweat the second I walk out the door. Well, we moved here, then it was cold, then I was huge, then I had a baby, then it was hot, and... you get the idea. The last thing I wanted to do was go walk a couple miles in the mountains while carrying the baby and keeping Elsie in line.

This week, though, it finally cooled off a bit and I felt up to the challenge (plus my friend Jessica is staying with us, so I had help). I went to a Facebook group to figure out what hikes in the area would be easy with little kids and someone mentioned the Grotto Falls Trail in the Nebo Loop near Payson. It sounded easy enough, so I made everyone pile in the car and we headed to the canyon.
The Verdict: At a total distance of 0.6 mile, the Grotto Falls trail is great for little ones, old ones, and everyone in between! It's an easy hike without any challenging terrain. If you have a bad sense of balance, you might want to wear shoes that can get wet and walk through the creek instead of over the "bridges," but other than that, anyone and everyone can enjoy this hike!

What is that, velvet? As a matter of fact, yes, yes it is! What you see above is the Jordan XX9 first image of a GS colorway placed on the Air Jordan 1 High. Said to be a part of the Heiress Collection, the Jordan 1 comes draped in a smooth velvet upper to give Cheap Jordans the classic model a smooth and lush motif.The shoe comes constructed out of velvet and suede and done in a tonal Maroon/Burgundy colorway. Seeing suede is nothing new on this model, but the star Jordan Eclipse of the shoe is definitely the use of suede placed certain parts of the upper. Giving the shoe some nice contrast is the Metallic Gold noted on the branding. A White midsole and more Maroon Jordan Shoes takes care of the outsole. Said to be releasing later on this year, GS footers won’t have to wait much longer to pick up a pair.
In three short days we’ll be seeing the release Jordan Shoes 2016 of what may be the most anticipated Air Jordan 11 release of the year, yes even more anticipated than the Space Jams.Covered in a white tumbled leather upper, this Olympic-inspired Air Jordan 11 Low gets Jordan 28 a bright pop thanks to the addition of Metallic Gold on the patent leather mudguard and the Jordan branding that appears on the tongue and heel. A Black inner liner, white midsole, and icy blue Jordan shoes translucent outsole complete this simple but eye-catching colorway of the Air Jordan 11 Low. You can pick up your pair on August 27th for a retail price of $170 for men and $130 for kids.Click Jordan 5 and bookmark our official Air Jordan 11 Low Metallic Gold (Closing Ceremony) launch page now for even more imagery, info and release details.
Still months away from its expected release, even more images of the New Jordan Shoes forthcoming Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle, that is reminiscent of Spike Lee’s Oscars are featured.Suggested to drop sometime this Holiday 2016 as part of JB’s extensive lineup, the basketball Jordan 9 sneaker is essentially defined by its luxe tone covering the entire upper in shimmering finish. Gold lace locks, in addition to beige-colored laces and tongue complement the eye-catching design, as the profile is topped off with pristine white gracing the heel tab, tongue and midsole unit.Click and bookmark our official Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle Metallic Gold launch page Jordan 1 now for more images, updates and release details.

Do you sometimes get serious cabin fever in the winter months? Have you thought about finding a way to get some exercise in the great outdoors without spending a fortune? Winter hiking or snowshoeing is a incredible way to get exercise and give you a mood boost but you need to know a few things before you venture out.http://bestwalkingshoes4men.com/top-hiking-shoes/
