You can get these little plaques to nail onto your walking stick...
I thought they were geeky at first - but hey!
Some pretty snazzy hikers have them -
It's quite a sight!

Around town closer to home!

This was a good year for hiking.
Some were walks - some were "proper" hikes!
Some were "urban hikes!"
Hiking is a great way to get fit.
And it is it's own reward!
There's always something more to see -
And it's always just around the next corner!

Hope your day is great!
Thanks for reading!


  1. All gorgeous pictures!!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the review! I haven't really tried hiking yet as I'm not sure how I will do with climbing hills and mountains. I tend to be clumsy and can fall down walking on flat ground. It would be bad if I fell on a hike and someone had to carry me out. Yikes!

  3. Gorgeous photos! Proves, also, there's no place like home...that final image, amazing. I love hiking too. My favorite place: Snake River Canyon. Many 1st Peoples' petroglyphs, er, picture-writings carved on melon gravel (huge, smooth volcanic rocks carried by an ancient flood). Deep serenity in such places. Even met a wolf there, once, coming round a corner of cliff face. YIKES. No matter. We headed in opposite directions. :) Have a great week end!

  4. Hey now, no Geek bashing :)

    Beautifil photos

  5. I'm a Geek myself -
    They just didn't know what to call it back then!
    And thanks!

  6. Girl you have been in some beautiful places :) Thanks for taking me along!

  7. You are an adventurous girl! Good for you--I love your spirit! The photos are great!

  8. Still don't see ya aboard a mule ;-) !!!
    (I need to do more mileage on my own two feet, it's true)
    Also would like to go on the Molokai Mule ride...


I would love to hear from you!
