Long Overdue

After a very lengthy healing process, I’m happy to report that today I got back out on the trail!  It was a perfect day for hiking – sunny and cool.  My hiking women have been patiently waiting for me to get back in shape.  Even though only two women were able to join me today – others are waiting in the wings for the next hike.

It had been so long since we hiked, that we were all smiles and enthusiasm.

The 4 mile (round trip) hike today was a good way to ease back into hiking.  Yes, there were inclines, (some were steep enough to give us pause) but mostly it was easy terrain, well marked, and just the right distance for us to feel happily exhausted, but not overly stressed.

We found a little picnic area by the lake, so we stopped for a quick snack.

What a gorgeous view.

I hope this means I’m back, because it felt so natural being out there – almost as if it hadn’t been over 6 months – this hike was long overdue!
