Hey...go take a hike!


Yesterday my head was spinning with thoughts and I was standing in my house trying to figure out what to do next. That's when my phone rang and my friend was on the other line telling me to put on my shoes because we were going for a hike. I have always wanted to do more hiking...I live in Colorado where there are so many options and beautiful sites. So this summer that was one of my goals, to hike often and explore different trails. I have been several times but had taken a break over the past couple of weeks because of the remodel project.

Yesterday, we were an hour away from the city, walking on a path while clouds blew over head and cooled us off. It was quiet, calm, relaxing...it was perfect. My head stopped spinning and I felt calm. I'm glad that hiking was one of my goals for the summer...has made me appreciate Colorado so much more.

oh wow.. I'm totally jealous! I want that, but lack the decent trails. Glad it helped you clear your mind and find some peace. :)

That sounds great. We too live in a beautiful place and don't take advantage as often as we should.

I can't wait to do a ton of hiking on vacation- it is one of my favorite things to do for this very reason.

Every fall we say we are going to do more hiking. We usually get 1 good hike in and then all of a sudden it is July and 90 degrees outside. That is a drawback to living in FL.

I loooove Colorado. I cover one account in Denver, but they don't like me....so....I never go see them. Never really been known for being a bulldog.

That's why I love northern MN. Ten minutes and you can be away from everything and everyone. Nice.
