Our efforts to live a more healthy, active lifestyle is challenging while traveling. It takes commitment to make time for fitness during trips. Finding new & interesting activities makes it more fun.
We are on a mini vacation in the heart of Cajun Country and thought a swamp hike would be fun. Although we regularly walk each morning around our neighborhood, real hiking (as in wilderness) is not something we have done.
We started out 6am with a beautiful supermoon for light.
It hasn't rained much here lately so the trail was solid. The views that awaited us for our efforts were beautiful.
We hiked for 2.25 miles.
I found hiking to be fun & now I want more! I plan to read up more on it. I need to buy some basic gear though. Anyone know where a beginner hiker should start? Perhaps i can join a group !
