I was working around the house this afternoon, feeling restless. Midway through vacuuming, I glanced out the window on another beautiful fall day and thought…”why am I doing this when I could be doing that?” One glance at MD and I knew she was wondering the same thing. Within a few minutes, we were packed and on the trail.
Nothing too exciting…another trip to The M, up the steep route. Still a good workout at a rate of climbing 850′ in .5mi. It was a lot warmer out than I’d expected, so we stopped often for water…that’s my story and I’m sticking to it 🙂
MD will turn 10 in November and outings on hot days are beginning to be a bit tough on her. We were thankful for the shade along the trail today. We came down via the outcrop, which also gave us a place to sit for a bit.
Nothing perks up a day more than pulling on the ol’ hiking boots.
