Photo note: Picture of Hikeotober last fall.
Hiketober is here! Every October I spend every weekend during that month going on at least one hike. It is my way to re-connect with nature, get time to reflect or just enjoy being outside, and really serves as a form of meditation for me. I go by myself a lot. But also do hikes with my boyfriend or with friends. It is a great bonding activity that is just fun. And usually ends with a nice glass of wine, beer, or hot cider.
Today I started my hike month, with a hike in the city. Due to 5dys of rain, the hiking in the woods and mountains in the area were just too muddy and wet. So instead, I picked a spot in the city I never go to and walked it for 2hrs. Fun way to explore and see new neighborhoods.
Next weekend I’ll start my nature hikes pending weather. In the DC area, I typically do Sugarloaf Mountain, Billy Goat Trail, and one trip to Shenandoah.
Where do you hike? I would love some new ideas. Maybe I’ll try a weekend trip somewhere new!
And what is your version of hiketober?
Time to refuel that body….and the soul through nature!
When you visit we can hike Robinson preserve and maybe go to Sanibel for the day to Ding Darling Preserve.
