Yesterday, we set out to Mt. Charleston with two of our friends and Sebastian. We were looking forward to enjoying some cool air, beautiful scenery and a refreshing hike.
Well, we got a little bit more than we bargained for! The trail we were looking for, which we had called the day before to make sure it was open, was blocked off by cones and a no parking sign. So, being the law-abiding citizens we are, we parked on the other side of the street where there was no signage and then proceeded to hike the trial. When we returned to the trail head, a national forest ranger was there who was not very happy with us. She gave us our first federal citations for “hiking when the trail was closed.” We are such rebels!
Needless to say, we found the whole ordeal a little bit funny. It was still a wonderful day and we took some great pictures to capture our fun. We definitely got the adventure we were looking for!
Enjoying our great hike
