One of our local little mountains has been developing quite the trail system over these past few years. A few weeks ago we went hiking on a few of the trails and had a great time spending a few hours out in the great outdoors on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
Strapping our backpacks on for the hike – Mom didn’t get the memo that the hiking attire was a red shirt and black sweats.
Pointing the way to the start of the trail.
We decided to take an easy trail to start with and then connect to a trail that would take us up to the top. The second trail was a bit steeper and I have to admit I did ask a few times when we were going to be at the top. Mom and Dad talked to me about building my endurance so I would be ready for some backpacking trips this summer.
