When visiting national parks I normally take several of the main trails to the view points or places of interest. And one of my favorite parts of hiking such trails is the journey that takes you to the final destination (in this case a view point). However, some folks don’t soak up this section of the hike, as they basically run up a the trail with their heads down trying to get to the top as fast as they can. My approach is to enjoy the path and the many viewpoints along the accent, so when you get to the main destination you’ve already experienced many beautiful things and inspiring views.
