Gosh, how I love getting out in nature. It really gives my soul some peace. Beautiful views, fresh air, animals and creatures. It all just comes together for me.
Last month, the Sunday of Memorial weekend to be exact, hubs and I took the dog and set out to hike Sitton Peak.
A nice, leisurely, peak hike right in our backyard. Sitton is not a real high peak, only ranking in at almost 3300 feet, and the trail only approximately 10 miles round trip, out and back. The first four to five miles or so are mostly uphill (nothing too steep), with some places of downhill or level ground. The last section is a bit of a scramble up a pretty steep, not well maintained path. Once you reach the top, you’ll find some nice sitting boulders (where we ended up relaxing and napping on for quite a while) and an old metal can with notepads to sign your declaration (some of which being pretty entertaining!).
Overall, a very pretty hike, that’s not too strenuous, not too long, dog friendly, and close to home. I give it two thumbs up!
