    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...

    Like a true drifter, in my 20's I walked from

    San Diego to Bangor Maine, down to Virginia beach and back to Seattle Washington.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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

    since high school. I just enjoy walking the trails, taking in the scenes and it's a great family togetherness outing in my house we can all agree to. We just grab our water bottles and hit the fire trail up by the house here and once you reach the top, which is about a 4 mile...

    My Favorite Things About Hiking.....

    The early start... The coffee stop... Trailhead high spirits... Feeling the burn... Wayfinding... The improving views... The outlet stream... Mountain flowers covered in droplets... The turquoise clear water of an alpine lake... The trail to the next level... Granite slabs...

    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.

    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.

    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 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!

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