Have you ever lost track of time? This week, not only was I extremely busy at work, but I was also getting ready to head out of town to visit my family, so finding a good time to hike seemed impossible. But if you truly keep your goals TOP of MIND, you will make it happen. So that is what I did. With travel time to the mountains being my biggest challenge, I decided to check out WTA.org to find a closer hike. I found a gorgeous, local, hike that ended up being absolutely wonderful. It had been several years since I had hiked at Saint Edward State Park and took the Grotto trail down to Lake Washington. I was quickly reminded of its beauty, and how steep the descent is, but so worth it! The lake was calm and the sun was shining bright, making for an amazing adventure!! I am so grateful for this path I am on and for nearby places like this. If you are pressed for time and want to experience nature, this is the ideal spot!!
