I will be the first to admit that I had no plan of hiking up Table Rock when I started the weekend but I decided Saturday morning that it was a good idea, and I'm glad I thought of it. The weather was just about as perfect as the view.

Friday night I was just exhausted after a long work week so I went to bed fairly early around 9:00 p.m. which also meant I was going to be waking up early. I really wanted to get some exercise but didn't want to stare at the walls inside the gym I normally visit so I decided to hike Table Rock.

I was pulling out of Nampa just before 6:00 a.m. which put me to the trailhead right around 6:30 a.m. The last time I visited Table Rock I had no idea where to go and I ended up driving up the back side (thanks google maps). But the hike was not bad at all. It only took about 30 minutes and the views at the top were well worth it.

Everyone on the path Saturday morning was so nice, most people smiling and saying 'morning as they passed. It's always so easy to forget about Table Rock since it's right in our back yard, but I would highly suggest taking a hike up. It really is a lot of fun, and not too difficult.
