Tangled Up In Blue

Early one morning, the sun was shining, 
We were hiking a trail,
Wondering if we hiked them all, 
Would our boots hold or fail

Tangled Up in Blue was formed when a few friends, who loved hiking, decided they wanted to hike all of the CFPA Blue Blazed Hiking Trails together. This site journals and photo-documents their adventures on these trails and more. 

Many people join in for the adventures but only four adventurers are constant: Jes, Dana, Bryan and Mike. 


Give the girl a coffee and some water and Jes is ready for adventure. A nature lover, especially dead trees, views, and rocks, hiking is one of her favorite ways to see these things. The klutz of the group she is often pointing out “ankle-breakers” and slippery areas along the way. Jes is the journaler and the photographer of the group.


Dana is a burst of energy and weights her backpack to slow herself down. She is the prepper of the crew and keeps track of mileage and checks off the trails on a map. Also a lover of nature, she enjoys burning some of her endless energy on the trails. Always good for dad jokes, plant identification and belting out a good tune.


Bryan is the only person crazy enough to keep up with Jes and Dana on a regular basis. Bryan loves the beauty of the trails, waterfalls, and nature’s music. Bryan is a pretty constant force of calm and rationale and keeps Dana & Jes from hiking into oblivion.


Mike isn’t available to do all of the blue trails with the group, but he is in many of the other hikes. Mike is a nature and animal lover. He appreciates the peace of mind and clarity that comes from spending time in the woods. He enjoys “cursing” us with more hills.
