    I love how friendly people out in nature are.

    When I go on hikes I am always greeted with a friendly smile and hello from complete strangers. More people should step outside and breath. Take in nature and smile because they can!

    I love summer hiking

    so much, this has to be my favourite spot! Its an hour boat ride to get to the island then a 45 minute hike and at the top, at the end of the trail is a lake! Everyone calls it crater lake! There's no fish, no alge and the water is perfect to swim in, and it's surrounded by...

    Some Winter Blues

    I hike primarily in the Northeast United States. I am not (yet) much of a winter hiker.. and so, around this time or a bit later.. I usually get anxious. I begin to think about the thaw- when will it happen- when can I get out again? Soon I will probably pull out the topos and...

    The Unofficial Goal Is to Summit

    A year and a half ago, my friend said that he wanted to hike Mt. Whitney (highest peak in Continental US) and wanted to know if I would come along.  OK. So I've seen Mt. Whitney, my oldest brother lives not too far from it and it's HUGE. Never though about it once in 20...

    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.

    My friends and I decided to go hiking today

    as a post-birthday celebration (I'm 19 as of yesterday, woohoo). I took some awesome shots. I am absolutely tired! We hiked a total of 8 miles... out of 10! I'll definitely return. I love nature!

    I've been trying to decide

    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...

    I hiked the Precipice Trailhead in Acadia

    National Park in Maine in the fall. We found out afterwards that it was for experienced hikers (we're total amateurs who just love being outside), but we did it! We managed to break pretty much every rule doing it too haha

    After The Storm

    Today from the start at about 8 in the morning when I looked out side was cold, dreary, and foggy. Of course after years of hiking on the AT it takes some pretty serious weather to keep me from going out on a day that I want to. I decided to go a park that is near where I work...

    I'm so glad I'm getting to go hiking today.

    .. Whenever the stress is getting to be a bit too much, being outside and away from most people and technology helps a ton.

    I love getting to the top of the mountain

    and looking around. it feels so good when you get to the top. you can see something special. you feel like you did something wonderful. then when you get to the bottom, you have some food and beer for a good laugh.

    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.

    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.
