Well, I survived my first self-inflicted flare this summer, with the help of some adventuring bloggers. Here’s a short list of some of the places from which I draw inspiration.
Look and you’ll see another tiny, quiet river town with a quaint historic district loaded with shops and locally owned businesses. Look closer and you’ll find layers of history hiding some real American heroes.
“The Appalachian Trail Girl’s Guide” was written to inspire more women to hike the Appalachian Trail, but it’s also a treasure trove of information about the trail and how to survive it.
I do a lot of raving about Montana and Glacier National Park on here, but I promise it’s for a good reason. The place really is spectacular. The way most of the park’s visitors see it is from their car. But, for the love of all that is holy, if you have working legs and lungs, GET OUT AND HIKE THIS PARK. Do it. Do it for me. Do it for yourself.
Could I finally be growing up? Doubtful. But at least I don’t worry about what others think I should be doing anymore!
Maybe you noticed something different about the blog, maybe you didn’t. Either way, I wanted to take a minute to point out some changes, especially since I had to take a week off from posting to get this switched over. Which reminds me, I’ll never redesign again. This was entirely too much work.
I’ve hiked at Clifty Falls State Park in Indiana twice this year, and every time I go I like it more. With four waterfalls, an abandoned train tunnel and miles of trails, its a wild wonderland of adventure.
Independence Day is my favorite holiday. It combines all of my favorite things: eating grilled food, drinking homemade Arnold Palmers, shooting off fireworks, playing with sparklers, friendly games of cornhole and wiffle ball, parades and festivals. I mean, what’s not to love?
So I didn’t get the news I wanted from my doctor about how much I need to use my oxygen, but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to give up. I’m going to prove him wrong – again.
Yellowstone is a place everyone must see before they die. It was America’s first national park and it’s the crown jewel. I haven’t seen all of the national parks, but I’ve seen many of them, and nothing I’ve seen come close to this.
