Go Take a Hike

Happy October! I think many people would agree with me when I say that nothing beats a Fall hike on a gorgeous sunny day. The thing with happy trails is that you can take it anyway you like, a light jog, a relaxed stroll, a power walk, or a marathoner’s stride. Nature is waiting for you; for you to enjoy however you choose. The foliage is not quite in its full colour spectrum, but it is getting there. Some leaves are still stubbornly fighting on to stay green, while others have already made the transition to turn red, orange or gold. It was supposed to be a lazy rest day today, but the great outdoors was beckoning my name and it was a call that could not go unanswered.

I will stop babbling now, and let the brook do it for me:

  1. Nothing beats a fall/autumn hike on a gorgeous sunny day! There was an amazing park down the road from me in France. Spring and Autumn/Fall were the best times to hike, run or bike around it!

  2. Gorgeous! I agree – nothing beats a fall hike. But winter hiking is pretty cool (sorry…no pun intended) too. Just be sure to wear a good pair of winter hiking boots to keep the tootsies warm.

    One thing to keep in mind about hiking is to avoid going alone. Always safest to go in pairs or in groups. I know this sounds like a no brainer but some hikers do prefer solitary hikes and every now and then there’s sad news of a lone hiker gone missing.

    So to reiterate Trextotigress’ post, get out there and enjoy but stay safe!

    1. That’s a very important tip to remember, Fran. I like solitary walks in pedistrian safe cities, but to venture alone in a wooded area is a no-no.
      Winter hiking does sound “cool”. πŸ™‚
      I think we should try snow-shoeing this winter.
