Hiking on The Appalachian Trail

Hi guys!

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.Yes, I know I’ve been lacking with my post and have been MIA for quite a few days, but I just wanted to take some time off from blogging and spend some quality time with the Mr over the long weekend. Today supposed to be a Tip Tuesday post, but I actually did not have anything plan for it so I thought, why not give myself a break from Tip Tuesday and do a more interesting post instead. Sounds good?

Last Thursday, the Mr and I went hiking on the Appalachian trail. It is one of the most well known hiking trails in the eastern United States. Even though, the trail we hiked on was only 4 miles, it was pretty challenging especially carrying a full pack while going up the steep slopes on the mountain. However, that sense of accomplishment after we reached the top was satisfying and the scenery from above is priceless.

I love going hiking in this country. The mountains are so beautiful and it always makes me feel at ease and peaceful just looking at the natural beauty of the world. The last time we did something like this was 2 years ago when we went to Colorado on vacation. The mountains were so breathtaking especially with the snow caps. *died* We definitely would be coming back to the Appalachian Mountains when the weather is much cooler, and when the leaves have already change color. 🙂

P.S I did wore hiking boots, but had to change halfway up because I was starting to get blisters and I was so sore after the hike that I do not want to anything. This may be the reason why I was MIA. 😛

  1. The Applachian mountains! “Skyline Drive” is very popular in the fall when the leaves turn into yellow, orange, and red down in the Shenandoah Valley. I drove up up there a few years ago to see the changing colors. It turned ou t to be a rather rainy day with some periods of sun, so I got a few photos of the leaves and passing shadows from clouds. I wanted to go back and hike one day….but that hasn’t happened yet! http://storieswithnobooks.com/2012/10/20/mysterious-witch-of-shenandoah/
