Some of the girls and I lucked out and received the coveted Subway hike permit✨!! Our two groups applied months in advance with only one making it through (sorry guys). This technical hike, complete with climbing, scrambling, wading and swimming, certainly did not disappoint!! I’m sure we will be talking about it for years to come. Most of the solitary route (that’s right! No crowds 🙌, we only saw one person on the entire trail) to the Subway is in or along beautiful Russell Creek with views of the canyon walls reaching out of the gulch on either side. A serene solidified sanctuary. God’s country indeed.
