Each week in our local paper there is a feature on lesser known places in our state where one can go to enjoy some beautiful scenery. One recent day, Matt and I went for a hike with Mickey and Cam on a picturesque trail that we would otherwise not have known about, and guess what? I actually enjoyed it. It wasn’t too hot, the bugs were not out yet and there was really no one else there – just two people, two dogs and nature.
All in all, it was a most pleasurable way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed it so much, I actually went out the next day with just Mickey to another hiking spot, a little closer to home and not as isolated. Now that some of the parks are open and the weather is nicer, everyone who is able seems to be out, even during the week. Still, it was a beautiful way to spend a couple of hours. I cannot believe I am saying this but I am looking forward to doing it again as soon as I can. Thanks to my dog, I might just become an outdoor activity person yet!
