Blane County Adams Gulch Trail

I had Saturday afternoon all to myself and decided that I needed some trail time near Sun Valley.

I have wanted to do Adams Gulch trail for a while, but last summer, the high water levels had made some of the water crossings where you would have to get wet. So last year, I wussed out and did not do any of that. This year, the water is low and the trees are starting to change color, so with a little encouragement from the Elephants Perch instagram account earlier this year, I decided to hit up this trail.

The directions to the trail posted on the Blane County Rec site was spot on. It was easy to find using the directions posted. Turn on Adams Gulch road from Highway 75. I came from the north.


There was a little road construction on the bridge leading to the trailhead. No biggie. The trailhead was packed with vehicles. This place really is happening!

TravelWise Packing Cube System Review & #Giveaway

I love sharing items with everyone that I enjoy. EatSmart Products is a great company and I have enjoyed all of the products I have tried. This post is sponsored by EatSmart Products.

I am not a light packer. I'm one of those people who throw everything into a bag and decides that that isn't enough, so I have to pack more. Usually, on a roadtrip 2 hours away, just for the day - I pack 3 pairs for shoes. Three. Don't ask how the other half feels about that.

I am going on a cruise on January and am flying to my destination on a cheapie airline with baggage restrictions. So I have to get my packing organization under control for my time away. Thank goodness for EatSmart having these packing cubes. They come in 9 different colors - which if you get multiple colors can designate different types or days of clothing or even for different members of the household.


From the EatSmart website listing -
New deeper cubes! Perfect size for that long weekend getaway! The TravelWise 5 Piece Packing Cube Set is a travel essential that allows clothes to stay folded and neat when packed in their own "small drawers". The cubes are fantastic for staying organized on short travels and long travels alike and help you avoid overpacking.

  1. This may sound weird, but I always pack a few safety pins and some duct tape... it seems like every trip I go on, I need to 'macguyver' something that broke, ripped, or needs adjusting, ha! On the normal side, I always pack a hoodie, even if I'm going somewhere warm. Use it as a pillow, pull the hood up for a little privacy on long flights, snuggle up in one at night, etc!

  2. My pillow. I can't sleep on hotel pillows. I have to have my own, comfy pillow.
