Best Hikes

We love hiking and have been on a lot of diverse types, some are spectacular like Johnson Canyon in Banff National Park Alberta Canada and Inspiration point at Jenny Lake, Grand Tetons National Park and they are truly gorgeous but you are generally surrounded by hordes of other tourists. Here is one hike we happened upon this past summer that quickly became a favorite, very few people, quiet and yet stunning. This one had a trail head in Pine Creek Campground near Livingston Montana. Check out the pics and let us know some of your favorite hikes, we would love to hear your thoughts.

Livingston Hike

Looks like avery nice hike. We were in that area in the summer of 2010 but arrived from the east on 90, then turned south to go to Red Lodge. Maybe next time.

PharOe,

Beautiful pics..., and in many cases one has to "hike" to see some of the more spectacular views.

The summer of 2020 I returned to an area that I have hiked on a number of occasions over the years..., here are a couple of pics from my 2010 hike around the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan's UP:







The following pic was taken a few years ago while backpacking the same area, but in less than desirable weather ....:

Alot of steps by the time you even get to the tower and then need to climb it at the Porkies.
