Hiking With Grace At Spring Lake Natural Area.

For anyone in the area, this looks amazing!

Hiking With Grace

The most beautiful place you will visit here in San Marcos TX. Lots of scenery and of course outdoor activities. This natural area has been around for decades and will continue to do so. A free aquarium is located inside the building on the property that tells you a lot about the extinct species there at the park. A glass-bottom boat tour is open to the public and prices are listed on the website. This hike is peaceful and moderately easy. Make sure to bring lots of water on a hot day at the Spring Lakes.

Watch my special post today down below!

Erin Goes Everywhere

It was a successful trip to the Adirondacks this week. On a whim, I booked a motel room and decided to cross two more fire tower trails off my list.

While the booking was spontaneous, prepping for the hike was not.

Vermont’s Long Trail

I’ve had many adventures on this trail! Thanks for posting!

A New Day Yesterday

Not to be confused with other long hiking trails, the Long Trail is the oldest long distance hiking trail in the US. It runs the entire length of Vermont, following the spine of the Green Mountains from the Massachusetts state line to the Canadian border. It’s also known as one of the hardest thru-hikes in the country, mostly because a lot of the longer trails are graded for horses and this one…definitely isn’t. I’ve been hiking bits of it on day hikes for years and have wanted to do the whole thing for almost as long, but this was the year where I finally made it happen. At 273 miles and over a month on trail, this would be my first thru-hike and the biggest backpacking adventure that I’ve ever undertaken.I usually split these posts up by day but I couldn’t think of a good way to divide this…

But we do use the off season to take care of business that is harder to do when the great armies of hikers are crunching gravel, filling privies and otherwise jamming traffic just west of the infamous, I-95.

It’s one week until Shenandoah’s North District Hoodlums hit the trail for the first time this season. This is what we and a lot of others have been up to since last year.

The off season is a time to maintain motorized tools – primarily weed whackers and chainsaws, sharpen traditional tools such as crosscuts and axes, inventory equipment, meet and plan and meet some more, conduct training, hire ridgerunners, and develop support. In the process, we about wore out Zoom.

For example…
