Trail Names

On our way to the mount Lookout hike in Winthrop, we were asked If we had trail names (nicknames that you are called while hiking.) We thought about what our names should be, and I came up with the idea of having our trail names be after our favorite hike. Below are our trail names and their origin.

Susan: Hidden lake, see “The Great Smoky Mountains/Glacier.”
Rob, Navajo, pronounced nava joe, see “Bryce Canyon Part 1.”
Me, Falling Fairy (Fairy Falls,) see “Yellowstone.”
Mari, Mudpot see “Yellowstone.”
Elliot, Mr. Delicate (Delicate Arch) see “Arches.”
Lucia, Rainbow Falls/Rainbow Falls alot:) See “Great Smoky Mountains.”
Rose, The Oldest, It’s what she said when we asked her what her trail name should be.

Comment what your trail name should be!


I love snow. From when the first snow falls to when the last snow melts. I love the sound of it crunching beneath my feet. I love the taste of it after sledding down a great big hill. I love building snowmen. I love having snowball fights. I love sledding. I love ice skating and feeling the slick ice beneath my warm feet. I love family dinners and sitting by the fire telling stories. I love exploring the bare woods and playing hockey on our creek. I love curling up next to the fire and drinking hot cocoa after a hard day’s work. I love laying in my bed at night with the snow shining into my room telling me to get a good night’s sleep so I can come back again the next morning. I love snow!
