“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.” – Unknown

Thank you visiting the Lost in Nature blog.

This blog was created to share my intrepid journeys with you. Whether you came here to look at the pictures, research a bit on a new trail, or just stumbled upon it, I’m glad to have you! While most of the hikes I have completed are found within the mountains, you may also find a few others tucked in between filled with sand or skylines.

Feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think. Sharing some bits and pieces of your own travel is always welcome.

The posts within this blog are divided into categories as follows:

Altitude – The hikes categorized in the Altitude section are those that venture above 10,000ft in peak elevation. The majority of these hikes are rated for experienced hikers and considered difficult, but a few easier ones can be found.

State Park – The hikes categorized in the State Park series are found within State Park boundaries. These hikes can range in difficulty. A small fee is typically required to enter any trails in the State Park series.

Open Space – The hikes categorized in the Open Space series are free, public areas managed by the local county. Open space trails have a wide range in difficulty and number of trail segments. Some open space areas have spiderweb like trails with 0.1 to 1.0 mile segments that can be used to make loops while others may offer as little as one single out and back hike.

Surprise – Posts in the Surprise series highlight one-off items such as scenic areas or beaches. These are places that typically have full amenities and offer a lot of space for relaxing – no hiking involved!

Hiking – The hikes categorized in the Hiking series do not associate with the previous mentioned categories. These hikes are often found on National Forest lands or Wilderness areas and can range in difficulty.

Look for posts on the 1st, 11th, and 21st of every month!

Happy blogging!
