Spontaneous mountain hiking


Ok, so after yoga yesterday and some time relaxing at home, the family and I decided to try out a “mountain” state park close to our homeI put mountain in quotes because the elevation at peak is 867 ft above ground level, at least according to the literature they have. I understand that in order to qualify as a mountain it has to be 1000 ft. However, it was still a good time.. We were just going to go for a picnic, but then decided to follow a trail a little ways and then go back. Well, halfway around the mountain, we sat down on a bench and decided to plod further. Yes, we had two children with us. Yes, this was insane.

At any rate, three-fourths of the way around we took a wrong turn and, after going under a high-tension power line tower, we came to a rather pretty area with exposed rock. We were clearly lost. So we went back up a bit and took the right way.

Total time: about an hour an a half. Just for a fifteen minute walk up the path. Clearly I miss mountain hiking. Next time, we’ll use a map.

At any rate, after the most physically grueling day in weeks, I just want to sleep all day. It’s back to work, though…

  1. Its great to get out wit by our own wit every now and again. Somehow nature takes hold and we are on instict alone. I have a similar story, in fact I’ll post it on my page instead of right here, I feel claustrophobic in this box. So you can check it out at your leisure.

  2. You know, it’s not very often that I get lost. Most of the time I’m in my house or office. It does feel good.

    Sorry the box is so small.
