Head for the Hills

Head to the Hills Ya’ll!

I couldn’t think of a better way to start my year than with a hiking challenge. Fitness outdoors is my preference. The hills and terrain are my treadmill and the elements are just part of the fun.

The more I wander the more I want to get lost in the trails. Not like really lost … just a little : ). The wildness that makes nature is will silence and stir ones soul to the core. I knew naturally growing up in Texas that parks and rivers were my happy. I kinda fell instantly in love with my outdoor surroundings and being able to revisit some of my favorite spots last year and share them with my family and friends was pure joy.

Life is meant to be a great adventure.

This week I completed my 3rd hike and my goal is 52 hikes by the end of 2017. Why … because I have officially joined the 52 Hike Challenge!

One hike a week for 52 weeks. My story to create, my life to live, my journey to take … I’m in! 

I do have many friends and family that have expressed interest in joining me on some of my adventures and lucky me. In Texas we are trailing and it’s only the beginning. Maybe you too will be inspired to take the challenge. What could you lose, or find … YOU?

Hike 1 at Government Canyon State Park in San Antonio. You can check out dinosaur tracks in Government Canyon! You can see over 200 tracks about 2.5 miles up the Joe Johnston Route, just past Marker #19. It’s a long hike, five miles round trip. Well worth it! Small fee to enter or free carload with your Texas State Park Pass.

Hike 2 was at Eisenhower Park in San Antonio. Free to park, free to enter! Free to have fun : ). This park is very dog friendly!

Hike 3 was at Jacob’s Well with a quick giddy up Old Baldy in Wimberley, TX. The great news is that when it’s not swimming season at Jacob’s Well you don’t pay to enter, to park or to play on the trails … yeehaw!

 Where you hike, be all there.

Fitfunand … go take a hike.

    • It was my first time at Eisenhower too. The stairs lead up to Old Baldy Mountain about 3 miles from Jacob’s well in a subdivision with literally about 6 parking spots. It’s free too : ).

    • I will be leading a hike next Saturday at Friedrich and should be updating time and trail in the next few days on Facebook. Hoping you can join us!
