Hiking Season 14 June 2018

At Ouzel Falls

Elaine is the best hiking partner! We both look forward to hiking season and it is in full swing. We’ve already hiked about 22 miles and discovered a whole new state park with awesome trails. There are several things that make us mesh so well together, including wanting an early start to avoid the heat of the day and the way we encourage each other up the trail.

Staunton State Park

Our hike in Staunton State Park was no exception and the day was gorgeous. As we were headed back down the trail, we wondered why so many people were just heading up because it was already hot and heading into the mid-90s. Yikes!

I love to hike next to water; the sound is so peaceful. On the Mason Creek Trail, there are various places by the creek where they’ve added rustic benches so you can just sit and take it all in; I’m thinking remote work location! One piece of this trail was closed for restoration, so we had to alter our planned route. It was all wonderful!

    It is indeed and it’s usually the one we start with to get our “altitude” legs.
