We finally went on a hike! According to my standards, it was pretty perfect. Not too intense, just long enough, and with plenty of side adventures and photo ops. I volunteered to pay for gas and be the pack mule in order for this hiking trip to happen.
I think that I’m probably at my happiest when I am outside.
Kasey isn’t the biggest hiking/working out fan. She gets migraines from just about anything fun, including hiking. I’m really pleased that this day worked out so well.
We chose to hike this loop because it had a view point. Unfortunately there was a group that wouldn’t move and we had to climb around them to see it well and take photos, but my bitterness toward them has passed.
We didn’t even consider going down these stairs, really. There aren’t any trails at the bottom–just the river that you really don’t want to swim in.
I always ask Jon to take pictures of me and Kasey, so he complained that I never want pictures with him. Oops. Kasey took this one for us.
Kasey found a creek. When we lived in Texas, there was a fabulous creek with steep banks right down the street from our house. We went there basically every day. I still think that climbing around creeks is one of the best things of all time.
Until next time,
