Welcome to Breakfast in America
My photo journal is an eclectic mix of things; there’s no guiding theme or topic. It is whatever happens to catch my attention, what I’ve been thinking, doing, and whatever my current obsessions are. At the moment, they are clearing some of the backlog on my ‘honey-do’ list, backpacking, hammock camping, and, I’m always, taking pictures.

Video: Hiking to the Trailhead via Long Creek. Hercules Glades Wilderness, March 2023
I was a little over a mile into my five-and-a-half-mile hike back to the trailhead when I decided to make a rough video of the remainder of my hike for my family in the UK. I’ve never done this before, and may not bother again, but here’s the final three-and-a-half hours of my hike, compressed into 14 minutes.
Here’s the final three-and-a-half hours of my hike, compressed into 14 minutes.
Long Creek and the Long Creek trail are hugely popular, so I stay away from them most of the time, but I figured a Monday afternoon in early March ought to be people free, and it was.
Note. In this video I use the historical trail names:
- Cedar Trail is now referred to as the Middle Trail.
- Long Creek Trail is still the Long Creek Trail (but it has been extended to include what was Rock Spring Trail).
- Pole Hollow Trail is now referred to as the Pete Hollow Trail ¯\(ツ)/¯
- Pilot Trail is now referred to as the Tower Trail.

I was finally back on the trail proper at eleven-fifty. The Cedar Trail is only twenty minutes from ‘Twin Falls Hollow’, and pretty soon I was dropping down towards Long Creek.
