Hiking SymbolIn recent years I have come to appreciate hiking, even though I have had no training and haven’t even read anything about it. Just putting one foot in front of the other seems to work — and it is a lot of fun and good exercise. Combining hiking with geocaching is a special treat and that is what most of the posts in the weblog hiking category are about. There are many beautiful places to hike and in the hiking log is a list of some of them I have been fortunate enough to experience. The details for many of the entries from the earlier years are sketchy, but I now do my best to capture the more interesting information and links in the weblog instead of the hiking log. Most of the more recent hikes are centered around geocaching and stories about them can be found in the hiking category.
