This 2.2 km (1.4 mile) hike in Dixie National Forest, Utah is not a popular one. We were the only one there at that point to hike the Vermillion Castle Trail. But, that makes it even better, I don’t like hikes where there are a lot of people.
Just outside of Rapid City, South Dakota, we decided to do a little hike to enjoy the beautiful nature in Black Hills National Forest. We ended up going to Buzzards Roost, where you have different options to hike or mountain bike.
Zion National Park is located in Utah and is dominated by Zion Canyon. We already visited this National Park twice, as it has so much to offer. You keep coming back to it. And we are not alone: it is one of the most popular parks in Utah. Zion National Park is most famous for The Narrows and Angels Landing.
Starting in Achouffe, you can do a beautiful 8km hike. It is a round trip that can be extended to around 12k.
In the beginning, you have to cross a little river but because it is not deep, this is fairly easy to do: take off your shoes and socks, roll up your pants and just go.
You follow the river constantly while walking in between the trees. At the end, there are some ups and downs but the most part is flat.
In about one week, we will leave for our little road trip in the US. We will start our journey in Des Moines, Iowa and through Yellowstone and Grand Teton we will drive to Salt Lake City.
Geierlay suspension bridge
Because it was a Belgian holiday on Monday the 15th of August, we decided to go to Germany for 3 days, and more specifically to Cochem in the Mosel Region. On our way to Cochem, we first went to Morsdorf to see the Hängeseilbrücke Geierlay that connects Morsdorf with Sosberg. With a length of 360m, it is the longest suspension bridge of Germany. After eating a sausage, we walked about 1.5km to the bridge.
