    That landscape right there and that scenery … they are what changed my mind about wanting to get to the US one day.

    1. Whispering Gums

      Oh you should CheezyK … The US has some amazing landscapes. Particularly Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. But elsewhere too such as Yosemite. Yellowstone. Big Bend.

      Darn West Coast, getting all the glory!

      1. CheezyK

        Believe me, the West Coast may have changed my mind about whether or not to travel to the US but you and your photos have thoroughly confused me about where to start!

    Pretty pretty delightful and inspiring Hannah.

  4. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL that writing! It matches so perfectly with the “hey cowboy” pose which I must comes completely naturally to you! 😉

  5. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh I meant that ‘hey cowboy’ in a cute way!! Hmm do you ever write something and press submit and then think ‘does that sound weird?’ :S

  6. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    What an amazing hike! Gorgeous scenery shared with lovely people. What more could you ask for?

    Looks like a beautiful walk.

  8. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Hahahaha i love that picture of you and you are a true cow girl now in the outbacks of the US hehe 🙂

    So proud of you!! seems like lots of fun and a beautiful day!

    ARGHHH all the food posts…making me so jealous again!

  9. Gary

    Beautiful images

  10. Rach

    Bahahaha! That pic of you next to the writing on the wall is hilarious!

  11. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    free pears!! Oh man, I so long to be able to hike just like that. So much hiking opportunity in the states. I am so keenly jealous of that fact. Just beautiful, me lady!

    What a great experience. You certainly have some lovely friends in the US. That hike looks like it was amazing. And how fabulous to have free food just hanging over the side of the fence. And the weather looks amazing too. We had 28C here yesterday – weather not so good in the ACT xx

  13. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    What a gorgeous hike! I’ve only ever been skiing in Utah, but I imagine the hiking would be just as incredible.

  14. Whispering Gums

    Great to see the hiking Hannah … Just what I remember of that gorgeous, gorgeous region. You’ve made me want to go back, though waterfall climbing might be beyond me now.

    Where did you get that hat, where did you get that hat …

  15. Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse

    Just… wow; I think that covers everything!
    When we say “hiking” in this country, it just means a walk over terrain that’s slightly more rough than pavement but this! I’d LOVE to try that; those ladders (or not) up the waterfalls, the scrambling up rocks; it’s hiking in the true sense and must have been brilliant.
    I love the words in the top picture – and the pears, what a result 🙂

  16. leaf (the indolent cook)

    The hike looks fun! Though slippery waterfall rocks with no ladders/rope does sound like it can be a bit treacherous…

  17. theresa

    Frosted toast crunch?? Whaaa?!?! I know the cinnamon variety, and in fact it is my favourite junky cereal to eat for not-breakfast.

  18. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I think this might be a perfect day in my world. I’d even take it without the cowgirl hat, although that did add a nice touch 😀

  19. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    What a wonderful trip! I’ve been to the west of the US with my parents when I was 14, and we drove around by car a lot and visited a lot of national parks. I always wanted to stay for a day and go hiking in those beautiful parks, but our time schedule didn’t allow it unfortunately. So I’ll have to return one day and then catch up with the hiking. 🙂

  20. Johanna GGG

    cool hat but where are the chaps? (I mean the pants not the boys)

    sounds like a great chapter in your adventures

  21. Emma

    Girl, I am impressed. I would not have pegged you for tackling those ladders with such style and panache, but good on you! Most excellent hikeability:)

    I’m also relieved to see no mentions of coffee here. Hopefully they’re getting you and your caffeine intake under control out there;)

  22. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I think it’s hilarious that you are subsisting almost solely on sugar so far in your trip. I see myself wagging my finger at you and demanding that you eat a vegetable, to which you reply, “I’m a big girl, I can eat what I want!” And yet, if you are still able to visit Atlanta, I know I’m just going to be shoving all manner of sweets down your throat the whole time anyway. I’m such a hypocrite. 😉

  23. Debi

    Absolutely gorgeous! Sounds like some hike! There are some trails back home in Hawai`i that I call the Ultimate Stairmaster…because you feel you’ve been on one just halfway through the hike! 😀

  24. Debi

    Yes, it’s supposed to mimic stair climbing. 😀 I’d rather go hiking, too. Much better scenery!

  25. Margaret

    That “ladder” (if we can call it that) terrifies me!! I enjoy public speaking; don’t mind spiders and snakes (I regularly see snakes where I live), but hiking on steep & unstable surfaces really unnerves me. I’d be tempted to stay in the car with a book and wait until you all returned hours later! Ha ha

    Adorable cowgirl outfit. :p

  26. Catherine

    Go girl! Lovely red rocks and I’m quite a hiker myself here in the Dolomites. Looks like you are having a wunnerful time!Xxx

  27. msihua

    Holy cheesecake and marshmallows! That’s insane! 5 hours? No sirree, no can do!

  28. Vaala ◪

    This post is the cutest! It made me all giggly-smiley when I read it 🙂

  29. Sig

    Oooh lady! I like that pose and that writing on the wall would exactly be what I’d imagine you would be saying if I drew a giant thought bubble coming out of your head.

    Oh those views! Hiking in the sunshine looks glorious and oh those pears! Glad you’re having fun 🙂

  30. Marta@ What should I eat for breakfast today

    I did a similar tracking but in Australia. It was called a hanckok George and was an amazing adventure. But unfortunately I did not have such a cool hat 🙂

  31. Libby

    Haha when I saw that cowgirl + writing on the wall pic appear on your facie, I thought it was intentional framing 😀

    Wow, that looks like an epic hike! As someone who loves hiking, this will be a hike that I will hopefully tackle should I end up in in the US of A next year 🙂

  32. Louise

    What a fabulous day that looks, although I am much too old to be attempting such things, and you wouldn’t get me near a ladder like that if it was bone dry, let alone propped up on a waterfall. Free pears YAY. Not sure about your after party. And that tricks photo still cracks me up.
