Fall hiking

                                                                             A scenic view from the Soldier Canyon Trail

Some of my best hikes have been in October and I am looking forward to more good adventures this year. Soldier Canyon Trail is a nice one in the cooler weather and will have fewer people than in Lamoille Canyon. You will need to be ready for the creek crossing at the trailhead. As with any fall hike be prepared for changing weather and wear some orange so you can be seen by hunters.

Muddy Boots & the Porch Pounders are plying their special mix of blues and roots music at the Western Folklife Center on Saturday October 28th. Doors open at 6:30 and show starts at 7:00. https://www.facebook.com/westernfolklife/#
