A 9 Mile Hike

Good morning! Hope everyone is off to a good Monday. One of the highlights from my weekend was getting to go on a long hike.

One of my best friends came to visit for the weekend and we decided to hike Old Rag Mountain. It was a pretty challenging 9-mile hike and a lot of fun.

Hiking is one of my all-time favorite activities. Parts of the hike required us to get on our hands and knees and even do a little climbing.

I’m definitely a girl made for the outdoors!

It took us around 4 hours to finish the trail. My legs felt heavy and exhausted but we felt like we were on top of the world.

It was a great workout and we managed to have things to talk about for the entire excursion. Just your average hiking chatty cathys!

Question of the day: Do you enjoy being outside and/or hiking?

Have a good one!

  2. This looks like such a fun hike! Mountain hiking is the best because you know there’s going to be an amazing view at the top.

    When we visited California, we did TONS of hiking and it was so much fun. One trail took us through a rocky canyon AND forest AND marshlands – we saw tons of different plants and animals 🙂

  3. That hike looks so awesome!

    I haven’t done much hiking. I like to think that I enjoy the outdoors. But to be honest, the weather has to be PERFECT and there has to be zero bugs and I have to be dressed right and…. so I’m not sure that is really true 🙂

    Looks awesome and fun! I love hiking and the outdoors 🙂 When I was in Atlanta a few weeks ago we planned on this 10.2 mile hike…already a long walk but it was even longer when we took a wrong turn and made it 16.2 miles…I can’t say I was completely thrilled with hiking after that lol!
