I've been hanging around in Apache Junction for some time now. One thing I really like about the area is the SHOPPING! I have been looking for a collage picture frame where you could change the pictures without taking the whole thing off the wall. (I used double sided sticky tape to mount it.) I finally found this one at Hobby Lobby.
One small problem was that the pictures could slide down while bouncing down the road. I fixed that by gluing a bead on the bottom of each of the slots.
In the frame, I put pictures of some of my favorite hikes. You can view the original post of each one by clicking on the underlined link.
This one is False Kiva in Canyonlands NP. I had seen pictures of it for years, but didn't know how to get there until my friend Linda took me in 2009.
Twenty Lakes Basin is another hike recommended by a friend. I loved it and can't wait to do it again.
Lake Sabrina, outside of Bishop, CA usually has perfect fall color around Oct 1st. You can drive to the lake, but this shot was taken on the trail around the lake. (I don't seem to have a post on this)
Crystal Mill, near Marble, CO is either a hike or a 4-wheel drive. It's rumored to be the most photographed site in Colorado.
The Little Lakes Valley, also outside Bishop, CA is my very favorite place to hike. The trail starts out at 10,000 feet, but there is not too much elevation change as you hike past lake after lake.
Maroon Bells, near Aspen, CO is another spot you can drive to, but also hike from.
And one of the hardest, and prettiest, hikes I've ever done is to Grinnell Glacier, on the east side of Glacier National Park in Montana.
I would love to hear about favorite hikes of yours - either on your blog or in a comment here.
