- Walking through the snow, searching for rabbit footprints.
- Strolling beside a stream, turning over stones and hoping to find a salamander.
- Hiking up a strenuous series of switchbacks in pursuit of a fantastic view of the valley.
These are just a few of the adventures awaiting you on the many hiking trails in your area! Last weekend, we celebrated National Trails Day, so I headed to my favorite place – Sky Meadows State Park. I found folks celebrating the day many different ways. I ran into plenty of hikers enjoying the views and the beautiful woodlands:
I found a trail crew updating the “blazes” that help hikers find their way on the trail:
And I saw plenty of beautiful plants and animals:
Sky Meadows’ trails aren’t just for hiking! Folks were out enjoying the biking and horseback trails too:
So much to do, so little time! I guess we’ll have to celebrate the trails on more than one day. Where are you headed for your next hike?
