Earlier in the week we shared information about the Flume Trail and shared pictures of Loop B from when we hiked it in March. Today we want to show pictures from Loop A (that we hiked after B). This trail was a lot of fun! Tunnels, rocks, cliffs, retaining walls, a lake, & nice, sunny weather! We almost made it an all-day hike because we missed the turn to complete our loop. If we would have keep walking, it was 12 miles to the end of the trail. (But it gave us a fun idea we hope to accomplish before we leave for Zim...) Luckily we back-tracked & found the trail we needed.
Some people don't know this about me, but I have a fear of falling. I call it a "fear of falling" more that a "fear of heights" because I really don't mind being up high. I actually like it. But as soon as the thought of falling enters my mind, I freak out! So I like to try to conquer that fear whenever I can. On this hike we perched on a ledge overlooking a cliff of rocks: Kam did some yoga & I celebrated my fear of falling.
We love when the weather is nice enough to wear our Chacos on our hikes, don't you?!
We began&ended Loop A of the Flume trail at the Spring Creek Trailhead. (Remember my solo winter hike?) This trailhead is found on Sheridan Lake Road between Rapid City & Sheridan Lake.
