I Hike Because…

I hike because…
– it’s my workout. Don’t need a gym when God has provided a vast area of beautiful terrain with steep climbs.

– it’s my time away from the busyness of everyday routine, crowded streets and technology ringing in my ears. (iPhone has a great do not disturb feature)

– it’s the best stress reliever and therapy and it’s free.

– it’s my time to talk to God and then listen.

– it gives me a glimpse of the Greatest artist who’s masterpiece compares to no other.

– it’s where I make my best decisions without the distractions of others opinions. (Remember, opinions are like armpits, everyone has them and they sometimes stink)

– it’s where I find community as I meet other hikers from different backgrounds and cultures.

I hike because…it’s where I hear God calling me to go.

Why do you hike?

    It’s my workout, and an enjoyable one. I’m not bothered with checking my e-mails or working, it’s just me and nature!

      That’s the best way to hike in our culture today. To hike with technology off.
