As a family, we like to hike around together.
As Trev trained for Mt. Rainier he would climb our own local Badger "Mountain" with a 60 lb. pack on his back, 3 times a week.
Many times we would join him, and even now that the Rainier trip is over we still continue to go.
It gets our bodies and minds outside; moving, conversing, laughing and it helps us appreciate the beauty around us.
Whenever we finish, I always have that feeling that my time was just well spent.
Not one moment of it was wasted.
