    We decided to go for a hike today.

    Just making memories for the kids. So, nice to finally be outside. Even had a chance to take some nice photos of the kids too.

    I just finished hiking the North Coast Trail on

    northern Vancouver Island and it was amazing. I do have to say that I still prefer hiking in the mountains to coastal hiking. It was awesome watching the waves at night while a beautiful sunset was taking place.

    A few months ago my twenty-one year old son

    and his friends invited me to go hiking. "Oh, hell yes!" I responded with excitment. Nature is one of my many loves. I rubbed my hands together gleefully. How cool these youngsters want an oldie but goodie like me along. "Now, mom," my son advised, "this is no ordinary hike...

    I love to take hikes about 16-20 miles a day.

    It's just nice to be free for 10 hours with nobody to bother you.

    Everytime I go on a good hike it makes me

    realize everything the world has to offer. It's not just about surviving it's about living the life you were given. To find the true person you are inside, to understand the world around you! Why are all the beautiful things in the world here if not for people to experience them...

    Great Exercise

    I am fortunate that we have a lot of hiking trails very close to home. It's great getting out in the sun with the mountains and everything else. Life seems so much clearer during my hikes. Great exercise for the body, mind and soul.

    It's really great especially

    when you live near mountains. I've been going in the mornings with my little rucksack packed with useful things. I find a nice spot and bring out my journal to write, think, and write some more.

    which I like more. Hiking with friends or hiking alone. I think I lean more towards alone simply because it's a good time to enjoy the peacefulness that comes with being in nature and because you can go at your own pace...
