An Early Morning Hike

Monday, August 26, 2013

Hiking has become a way for me to clear my head and center myself. It is my favorite form of exercise. On Sunday morning DH and I escaped our full house and went for a walk in one of my favorite parks. The trail is not difficult or particularly long (about 2 miles) but this park puts me back together every time.

    Sparkpeople had an article yesterday on hiking. I would love to hike in the environs in your photo. I make do by pretending when I go for long run/walk that it is hiking. I try to find the most scenic routes I can. I'd love if they were even half as beautiful as your photos.

    Exercise the body, clearing your brain, lowering any stress and beautiful scenery - is there anything better?? I really don't think so.

Add that you did it with your DH and you have me totally jealous. LOL

    Thanks for sharing! Hiking is good for more than exercise as you point out.
