On Saturday, I decided to head to the southern end of the Noble Canyon National Recreation Trail. I ended up hiking about 6 miles up on the trail, before turning back for a total of 12 miles round trip. It was a lovely hike! Afterwards, I found a nearby campsite and set up my home with some beautiful views as well.
The hike was pretty simple. From the trailhead, I just headed north. A few creek crossings and some rough trail conditions made it an interesting hike, but absolutely worth it for the beauty of the views all over it.
My goal on the hike was to reach the point at which I had turned around the last weekend. I was hoping this wouldn’t be the 6 miles that it turned out to be, but alas, it is what it is. I did succeed in the journey, facing the disappointment that I was about one tenth of a mile from where some of the best views begin last weekend. Oh well!
Once that hike was complete, I headed north about a mile/mile-and-a-half to find a lovely camp spot. The views are great, and the cell service with both Verizon and T-Mobile is respectable. T-Mobile is a bit slow, but it works, allowing me to take some of the weight off of Verizon. A truly lovely spot!
