Thursday was an incredibly busy day. We started the day off by finishing our much needed grocery shopping & we even stopped by a couple stores to pick up things for the Cara Box Exchange I am participating in this month.
After getting home & putting everything away, Mr. B & I decided that we were going to take Odin on a hike to explore a section of Hay Creek, that he had never seen before. Little did I know that this would be not only a first for Odin, but for me as well. This would now be known as my first true hike, & I a damned proud of myself for making it through it! I used my new favorite app for Android called RunKeeper to keep track of my time, distance & calories burned.
That number up there might not be a huge deal for you. 3.64 miles, almost 4 miles! That, to me, is the longest hike I have ever been on. I am still exhausted & achy sitting here today because I know I pushed my body to the limit. And, you know what, I can't wait to do it again! I can't wait to be able to feel it get easier, for me to go faster & further than I ever would have thought.
And now, I believe I will leave you with a few pictures I took along the way. :)
And then we reached our destination. This little unnamed lake way up on top of a hill. What a climb, but it was beautiful & totally worth it. I foresee backpacking & picnics happening here later in the spring & early fall. :)
So that's it for now, I'll be hosting a couple giveways soon, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, I am a guest blogger today over at Second Chances, that will be live over there at noon central time. So don't forget to check it out! :)
