Since many of my friends have never gone hiking before, I have gotten tons of requests to hit the trails with them. How awesome is that? I get to get my Annie Oakley on and share my passion for the outdoors, and specifically the Pacific Northwest, with my city friends. To be clear, I am a city girl. Born and raised in Kansas City, I could never see myself living outside the city. Even now, I’d rather pay ridiculous rents and/or mortgages for city life over the less expensive options in the suburbs. Ugh, you can keep that foolishness!
But everyone needs a break from the big lights and the big city. That break takes me to the comfort of the wilderness where nature and I can commune as one. Being in nature helps me recenter, refocus and rejuvenate. It’s like a day at the spa but with lots of sweat and physical exercise. LOL.
So, it was a wonderful Sunday afternoon when I found myself out on the trails with two of my Seattle homies to take in the sites and get some much needed exercise. We hiked Twin Falls, a wonderful day hike for beginners and experienced hikers alike. We capped the day off with dinner and more fellowship.
