Favorite spring activity

Monday, April 08, 2013

My assignment for Week 2 of A&I's BSG challenge is to answer the question: "What is your favorite outdoor activity in the Spring season?"

This is so easy for me! I usually have a hard time picking favorites, because I enjoy so many different things. And in fact, I love any time when I can get outside to enjoy the outdoors once spring is here...walks with the dogs, biking, walk/jogs, gardening and more. But...without a doubt, hiking is my #1 favorite activity...experiencing the glory of nature as it comes out of hibernation with greenery and blooms, listening to the birds sing in the woods and the frogs croak in a pond or stream, and smelling the fresh mountain air!

Now over the last several years, spring seems to be very short, going right into summer with a jump in temperatures. I am not a big fan of sweating while hiking, so hiking in the 50's and 60's and low 70's is ideal for me. And while I may not get any big hikes in this particular spring, since we are busy trying to sell our house, when I retire and we start full-time RVing, we will be in search of a perpetual spring, hoping to follow spring up the east or west coast.

What could be better?!?

    Great pics! Hiking is one of my fav's as well. Won't it be great to retire and do full scale RV-ing? When do you get to go that?

    I know you are anxious to get your house sold! I really hope it will sell soon. Maybe now that spring is finally here you'll get someone to actually make an offer on your home.

I know I love being in midst of nature too. I love it here in the spring, summer and fall until about the 1st of October. That's when I would like to leave here and go somewhere else until spring comes again. :) Hopefully soon you'll get to be in the midst of nature like you want to be for a while anyway. :)
