Iceline Trail Part 1: Takakkaw Falls
All the hikes in this area start with this view right at the trailhead. It’s wild because this is the type of jaw-dropping beauty that I would happily walk for days to see, but here you can just drive right up to it.
So we parked in the lot and walked down the wide paved path to the viewpoint along with all the families that had made the drive. We were the only ones with overnight bags. I snapped some pictures and took it all in as the mist from the falls sunk a chill into our bodies. Even in the sun, it wasn’t long before we were freezing and needed to tear our eyes from the view and get away from the spray.
Anyway, it definitely felt like time to hit the trail. I don’t know why, but I never feel comfortable hanging out in the touristy parts of parks. Whatever it was, it made me feel like it was time to get walkin’.
