Hiking American Fork Canyon

On Saturday (yesterday), Camron and I headed out with some of his cousins on a hike in American Fork Canyon. We took a trail to Silver Lake. Round trip it was about 4.5 miles and I would say it is a moderate hike. It's a workout, versus a stroll but nothing too strenuous. Most people can hike it in a timely manner and it is so worth it!

Before heading out onto the trail, I ate a Pro Bar. 8.5/10 recommend. It tastes goods, the ingredients are simple, and the macros are decent, especially if you are looking for an energy bar AKA carbs. 

Here is info for the hike we did in case you want to check it out: Silver Lake

 

We drove past a couple of lakes before getting to the trail head, below is a picture of one of them! Totally want to buy floaties and drinks for future lake trips!

Travel Destination Reveal for Fall 2017

In a couple of months, Camron and I will be flying to London and backpacking Europe for a few weeks. If you follow me on social media, you may have picked up on that. ;)

We bought tickets a few months ago but waited until we got closer to departure to announce our trip. We are backpacking and staying in hostels most of the time. We don't have an exact itinerary but we fly into London and we will spend a day or two there. We are going to Munich, Germany at some point during Oktoberfest and will also be meeting up with my brother at some point. The countries on the top of our list to visit include:

  • Ireland
  • Spain
  • Germany
  • Switzerland
  • France

We may end up going to other countries as well or even skip some on our list. We are open to changing our minds as we go along. As things with are trip pick up-i.e. packing, buying supplies, etc. I will start sharing them with you! I can't wait to share my packing list among other travel posts! (Heads up, pretty cool travel plans are in the works for 2018 already!)

I thought it would be great to start including some more informative/perspective posts relating to travel, backpacking, and adventures in general. Let me know in the comments if there is anything specific you'd like to see! We are traveling late September to mid October, so if you have ANY tips for backpacking Europe, great hostels, places to go, what to pack, etc. please let me know!!!
