Looks like Julie and I were on the same wave length this week. I had planned to talk about our free hiking adventure as well!
We are lucky to live right down the street from a great little trail and now that the weather is nicer, evening hikes are finally possible. We really enjoy letting our dogs have a little more freedom and we get to experience more visual stimulation than can be afforded with a walk through our neighborhood.
Please Note: Always always always make sure you are planning ahead. There have been many lost hikers in the past two weeks so make sure you know where you are going, you have enough daylight and you are prepared with food if the hike has even the slightest potential to be long. Don't be silly!
