I love to hike. I used to hike 3-4 times a week. Since changing jobs I have not had as much time as I once did. I went out for a couple hours today. Where I live in Northern Utah, it’s a hikers paradise. I live only a couple miles from the mountains and can be on the trail in less than five minutes. The weather was perfect today around 70 degrees and a gentle breeze. I was not the only one to come up with this great idea today. There were several cars in the parking lot and I passed quite a few people along the trail. Of course I get plenty of stares and smiles from passers by. I also enjoy stopping and visiting with other hikers along the trail. So whenever I would come upon a family with small children I would just ask, if any of you have seen any reindeer today. I seem to be missing a couple. So If you see them please tell them to go straight home. Most kids just act shy and giggle a little but the parents seem to enjoy the humor. Often playing along with me.
I am thankful today for my health and freedom, to live in a beautiful place where I can go out, get some fresh air and exercise, and put a few smiles on children’s faces.
See you on the Trail
