    Can't Wait!

    Hiking through the woods is one of my favorite past times! I enjoy communicating with nature spirits. When I grew up in central louisiana. When I was little my mom made great bike trails for my 2 older brothers in the woods behind our home. We had a few miles of woods to explore...

    Brandywine Creek State Park

    So my first hiking days were in Arizona, and the road has gone over and through some more well known places -- but I owe my sanity to a local valley in northern Delaware. More that a few times, some time torn from the spaces in between must-be places and spent walking aimlessly...

    Yosemite Dreams

    Every year in summer, my family, my grandparents, and I would go to Yosemite National Park, and in the later years, also to Mammoth, especially when it became more costly to stay in the valley, and just hike for about a week a bunch of the trails in that area. And for people who...

    I Love to Hike and Bike In the Woods, I Just Love Woods!!!!!!

    I have always loved the woods, and the mountains.  I love how they smell, how they sound, how they refresh the eyes.  My dream home would be to live in the woods, with a lake in sight from my large wrap around porch.  The woods always puts life back into me...

    I Am Hiker!!!!

    One of my favorite hobbies of all time is too hike. my favorite part about hiking is looking up and seeing the blue sky and green leaves melt together. I find that quite beautiful. I also love all the rivers in the woods when i go on hikes. I find waterbugs to be very cute.

    One of the few things that brings me to the core of who and what I am is a good hike in the woods up in the mountains.  I am lucky enough that I can go from sea level to 6,000 feet in an hour by car.  As I climb higher in elevation, and as the mountain road...

    I Feel Protected By the Woods

    Sometimes I Do

    I enjoy being out in the woods, but I have very sensitive skin, allergies, and I burn after two minutes in the sun. It's pretty hard for me to do outdoorsy things on a regular basis.

    I’ve been hiking the same stretch of wooded dunes for the past few years.  Sometimes I head over there just to get out and swing my legs and let the dog run ahead.  At other times, I hit the trail seeking sanctuary, a quiet place to ponder, or a private spot to...
