Now that weather is getting relatively warmer…and by warmer I mean getting above freezing… it’s making me think about being outdoors and doing that stuff I love to do!
Okay, we have a ways to go. The snow is getting that yucky dirty look now.
One of my goals for 2015 is to go hiking. We never did it last year. In order to cement the decision, both John and I got some hiking boots last night. On sale, of course 😀 Would I have it any other way??
I tried on some Merrells and these Hi-Tec. The Merrells went up higher on the ankle, which I actually thought I wanted at first for support until I tried them on and they were very uncomfortable around my ankle area. Then I tried on the Hi-Tec Banderas and they are super comfortable! Heavy, too, so they should stand up to the Adirondack trails. I don’t know as I would have normally bought salmon colored shoes, but when the shoe fits and it is on sale, can’t really quibble about the color, right? I checked out their website and they even have directions for breaking in the hiking boots.
There are so many hiking trails in the Adirondacks. You can try to be what is called a 46er, which is to have hiked all 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks. Not sure I really want to go for that as there is too much biking to be done, but it will be a nice change up for activity and get us to see parts we don’t on the cycles.
Now to keep waiting for the snow to melt – and quit falling 😀
