One of the best gifts I've ever given myself is the gift of membership in Women Who Hike (WWH). I may have started my hiking life with a fine group of Boy Scouts, but I've found that these gals are the most giving, encouraging group of fellow hikers I could ask for.
It's early again as I come awake to the same sound from the morning before. The slow sloshing sound that I now know is a moose. It's again getting closer. This time I'm prepared, having set my camera out so that it would be at the ready.
First up for 2020 - a First Day hike at Clifton E. French Regional Park (aka. French Park). As I watched the sunrise while getting ready to head to the park, I was greeted with the most beautiful array of pinks, oranges and a bit of purple. Watching those colors unfold reminded me that, while I’m not a morning person, that opening myself to possibility for the beauty in the day would be a fine way to start the year.
I guess I wasn't done hiking in 2019 after all. Here is a look at my final hike of the year on the blog.
Looking back to November and December 2019 hikes as Minnesota Winter sets in.
