Four Beautiful Hiking Trails In The US

Take a break from the flat pavement and marathons, and enjoy some rocky terrain. America’s hiking trails are distinct in their wide open vistas, dramatic geology and diverse natural vegetation. From routes that take you through the glaciers of Alaska to paths that cut through rocky ledges overlooking Maine’s rugged coast, these are tracks that will present you with unbelievable natural scenery at every turn. And while there can never be universal agreement on the most beautiful of these places, here are four that definitely warrant exploration by anyone who has a passion for adventure tourism.

Red River Gorge

Situated in Kentucky, this 500 mile canyon trail system lies on the Red River, and is a renowned rock climbing destination around the world. It boasts distinct geological features such as hidden caves, natural stone arches, exposed rock faces and enormous sandstone cliffs that make for some pretty scenic trekking; in fact, you might think that you’re right in the middle of a Jurassic adventure!

The Red River Gorge is a scenic endurance challenge for those who want to vanish into the wild for days on end, just make sure you’ve got the right gear to spend the night in the woods. If you’re looking for a place to find durable yet lightweight air mattresses, is a good place to start.

West Maroon Creek Trail

rockiesThis ten mile long, point to point trail is located in Colorado, a state that has a plentitude of scenic hikes throughout the Rockies. It traverses through a lush glacial valley and then heads up and over the awe inspiring Maroon Pass, 12,480 feet above sea level, after which it connects to the beautiful Aspen and Crested Butte. The ideal time to hike the West Maroon Creek Trail is July, the zenith of Colorado’s wildflower season – you’ll be able to see flowers in red, white, yellow and purple all along your trip!

Harding Icefield Trail, Kenai Fjords National Park

Situated in Alaska, this 8 mile roundtrip day hike will take you straight back to the Ice Age. The trail starts with a steep climb from the valley’s floor, going through meadow and forest, after which it goes above the tree line and concludes at a truly astounding outlook over the Harding Icefield, a huge sheet of ice and snow that extends for more than 300 square miles and has 40 glaciers in every direction! You’ll have plenty of vistas to enjoy while on the hike that will treat you to views of Exit Glacier as well as the Resurrection River.

Precipice Trail, Acadia National Park

This short 1.6 mile roundtrip hike is located in Maine and features ocean scenery from the Northeast mountains. As any hiker who has taken this trip will say, this is something that you must experience on your own. Don’t let its short length fool you though, it climbs up for a thousand feet through narrow ledges on the Eastern face of Champlain Mountain, and will give you the most dramatic, dizzying view of the harsh Maine coast.

Anniston Personal Injury Attorney Needs A Little Assistance

Running to Help an Anniston Personal Injury Attorney Get Back into Shape

There was a fun run in my area which the main objective was to raise funds for the recovery of a personal injury attorney who was assaulted 2 weeks ago by a couple of drunkards. I was intrigued and it really caught my attention because he was well known for being really generous and a sports enthusiast.

I am already familiar about this Anniston personal injury attorney because I’ve seen him on television. He was interviewed by a sports reporter on CNN as to how he manages to jog and train every morning, then work the rest of the day. He was a very active person and even joins some triathlon events.

Well, since I have nothing to do during that day, I signed in and joined the fun run. It was really fun and what’s quite different about this fun run is that most runners are lawyers, solicitors, attorneys and even a couple of old judges. I guess they should change fun run to “law run,” because of the high percentage law familiar people running.

It was overall fun and entertaining, and by the end of the day they’ve actually managed to get around $7000 dollars which I believe is good enough to pay hospital bills for the poor guy. What worries me is that on the news report, the attorney suffered a few cracked ribs and a broken leg, so it might devastate him if he will be restrained from running for a few months until he fully recovers. But I just hope and pray for the best.

Although there are a lot of cases having the same type of injury managed to have a full recovery usually around 3 – 6 months with proper therapy and nutrition, so I guess he will be okay soon. I just hope he doesn’t overdo it. And he can still manage to do his law work while recovering.

The reports also said that the drunkards responsible for what happened were influenced by drugs. I just wish that they will be punished. And thinking about it, I’m quite sure they will be.  Because they just messed with the wrong man. First of all, he is an attorney and I really believe that the man has lots of supporters. Judging from the fun run I guess some of the lawyers there are bound to make sure that those bad guys will be locked for good.

Well, that was my adventure yesterday and I hope you guys enjoyed it, keep running and travel safe guys.

By the way, the flyer I got from the fun run provided details about the attorney’s website. So you can check it out if you want. See below:

Making Friends Through Marathons


Since the time I started to run marathons, I have met a lot of people who share the same passion that I have for running. Not a lot of people take joy in doing such a strenuous activity. Some join marathons to gain experience and then leave the story behind them after they have crossed the finish line.

I am lucky, however, to have met people who see the beauty and challenge in marathons, to the point that we could meet up in various marathons across the state, without having the need tell each other to meet up. The marathons bring me and my friends together, despite our busy schedules and lives.

Just a while back, however, when I knew my friend George and I would meet for a marathon, he suddenly calls me from his place to tell me that he got into an accident and he can’t join marathons for a few months until he has fully recovered from his demise.

He accidentally slipped on his garage floor. He did not expect the floor to be wet that night of the accident where he was carrying a box from the house to the garage. As it turned out, the roof of his garage had gaping holes already, which allowed rain water to pour inside and damped the whole garage floor.

This should be a lesson: Even the most inconspicuous places in our home needs to be taken care of, less injuries and accidents are sure to happen.

Well, moral story aside, it was utterly sad that my friend and I cannot meet up for the upcoming marathon. If only the injury was not as bad, the marathon would have surely helped him regain from the accident. Marathons may be tiring but in the process they are able to tone your muscles and give your body a stronger build. If George had not been a frequent marathon runner, the damage of the accident would really have been much worse. It’s not easy to land on your back and have a box of heavy stuff fall on you and still come out stronger than all the impact.

George and I will join a welcome-back marathon soon after his doctor gives him the go signal. For now, I go and enjoy life and join marathons on my own for a while, waiting for my friend’s full recovery, soon.
