Paloma- what falls?!

29 07 2012


So, we went to Any Mountain the other day to check out their hiking gear and such. We had just ordered our brand new Camelbak backpacks and were getting antsy! Anyways, we asked the workers there where they go hiking and one had mentioned the Palomarin Trailhead to Alamere Falls so we decided to look it up on the AllTrails app and possibly hike it. We looked it up and off we went. Instead of our usual Saturday we took this 8 mile hike on a Sunday, which was definitely our only mistake. Every inch of the way is an incredible view!

This trail was a lot easier than my previous Mission Peak trips because there is a lot less of an all-at-once elevation gain. It was 8 miles and my kids both kept up very well.. in fact my son (in that first picture) was skipping and running almost the whole way back! I’m trying to get them started on this outdoorsy thing at a younger age than I did! My diabetes was doing pretty good, though. I checked it constantly and only got low once! Which is a lot better than my 2 previous hikes! The past couple months have been a bit difficult controlling my blood sugar as my NPH has stopped working and I’m waiting til October for insurance! And with only 100 test strips and a third of a bottle of Novolog I’m sure my blood sugar will continue to get out of control til October lol…  so my hiking might be a bit more dificult. Anyways… here is one part of the falls and ooo-wee it’s purdy!

This shot was on the way back… walking frantically before complete sunset and utter darkness lol 🙂

We had a blast! I’d love to hear from fellow type 1 diabetics, though, on your experience and how you treat your low blood sugar on the trail, etc! Email me!
