IS THERE AN EASIER PATH FOR ME?  

Sometimes in life, we get frustrated that life is not going great, and we keep feeling like obstacles are thrown in our way.  I do not know why some people get more share of trials than others, but I know for CERTAIN that GOD LOVE YOU.  I know that he is often looking down on us and watching us struggle trying to conquer a certain challenge, and he is standing back where I am, saying I have an easier path, try this path it is easier.  If we just take a breath, and ask Please Lord Help Me, Then listen, you might find that God has a better path for you that leads to more happiness and joy. 
This area in this above photo, and below in the 360 trail is a little tricky for many, but if you get up on this ledge early instead of trying to get up that lip at the end it is every simple.

360 GOOGLE EARTH TRAIL THROUGH A WINDY SECTION OF LITTLE WILD HORSE



VIEWING GOOGLE EARTH TRAILS WITH VR HEADSETS. 

I have loved 360 Google Earth Trails, but they are 100 times better with a VR Headset.  I started with just a cheap pair of Google Cardboard ones, but a little bit more expensive one with a remote brings  the trail to life!  It is like you are really there.  YOU HAVE GOT TO TRY IT.  You can get a decent pair for only 30 bucks, or spend $100 on a nice pair of Google Daydream ones (I think you have to buy the latest ones from the Google Store) that you can Chromecast what you are seeing in your VR HEADSET on the TV so others can be a part of what you are seeing.







HOW TO VIEW GOOGLE EARTH TRAILS ON A VR HEADSET.

Surprisingly, this is super simple.
First, Download the Streetview App on your phone.
Second,  Type in any area I have done a blog post on lately or any area that has a Google Earth Trail...Let's Try This one.  Little Wild Horse Cany). 
Third, Grab your VR Googles, and set your phone inside the VR Googles.
Fourth, Use your remote to move through the area, and you are walking the trail and seeing it in 360 Degrees.  #TakeAHikeDay, #TakeAHikeDayVR


What a fabulous way to see an area you would love to see, but you can't get there for one reason or another!

If you have liked the 360 Google Street View Trail here, there is lots more on Google Earth.  Just click on the link, then the little dude in the bottom corner, then any blue line to see more.

INFORMATION ON THE LITTLE WILD HORSE HIKE

To get to the trail head, you go from Green River and head west on I-70 to Buckhorn Draw Rd.  Take Exit 131 and then follow Temple Mountain Rd and Do Rd 1012 to Behind the Reef Trail. Personally I just have Google Maps take me there, but there are important steps you should DEFINITELY take before heading into this area for you will not have any cell service when you get here.  
1.  In Google Maps  search for this ware, then click on the 3 line button in the top corner.  Go down to Offline Maps, and tell Google to download a map of this area for you.  
2.  Purchase one of these awesome External GPS units.  It makes it so you don't need cell service to use your Google Maps. I LOVE MINE.  I have had both the Garmin and the Global Sat and they both worked great. Just make sure you turn the thing on, and I use a Booth Tooth GPS app to sync it to my phone. This way you won't have any issues getting lost back in here.  



The first Section of the Trail just walks along the river bed.  Stay on it, for there are paths leading out at first that go nowhere.  Watch for the Sign below.  The left side takes you to Bell Canyon, and the right does Little Wild Horse Canyon.  The whole loop is a good part of a day 8-9 miles and goes through the 3 slots in Little Wild Horse, Opens up to a wide open area as you work over to Bell, and then down Bell that has a few decent slot canyons.  Most peoples favorite section is the first 3 slots in Little Wild Horse.

If you liked this area, I think you would also LOVE

WILLIS CREEK SLOT CANYON.  I love this one, for it has a cute creek that runs down it.  It is not intense enough that you are going to get your feet wet if you don't want to, but makes it fun for kids, and is great for photos.  The Slot canyon is not as narrow as Little Wild Horse so it makes it for fun easy amazing photography.
