10K Hike



We took the kids for a hike last week.  The same trail that I hike once a week with my friend.  There was a bit of grumbling about how loooong the hike was; there was constant asking of whether we’re almost near the end of the hike.  We did a few detours, just to check out possible new trails.  It was hot, it was humid.  We were soaked through by the time we finished.  It was decided that we all needed a much-deserved calorie boost after the 2-hour hike, so we all went and had pizza / pasta and downed glasses and glasses of iced tea.  As if that wasn’t enough, we walked some more to get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream.  Then to make up for how much we ate, we walked some more still!  All told, we walked over 10 kilometers.  The kids felt really proud for having done the hike with us.  We definitely see lots more hiking once the weather gets even cooler.

Leaf-(1) Taken with my Samsung S6 during the hike with the kids – the ground and the leaves were a bit damp from the on-and-off drizzle that day.

That's a significant distance! Good for you all! I would love to enjoy an autumn hike. We tried this past weekend, but were rained out.

Wow 10kms! They did well. We went for a "walk" with our grandies on the weekend. Well, one of them scooted. The other one just complained the whole time.
Enjoy autumn. And have a great week.
