Adventure Challenge – Day 30: Ernie Miller Nature Park

I found this little trail on the app All Trails. I am really loving this app.

This trail is only a few miles from my house which makes it convenient to get to. A friend of mine has been wanting to go hiking with me. She runs 10 plus miles a day, but hiking is completely different. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up with her, and she was worried she couldn’t keep up with me. I found it encouraging in the first 15 minutes when she told me she was having trouble keeping up. I must admit, I was pushing it a little hard just to make sure I could keep up. Funny how our perspectives of ourselves and our abilities are often different from how other people see us.

It was a beautiful 3 miles hike. Lots of nature, dirt trails, a few creeks, and even a paved section to end the route when she felt it might be getting too rough. I will definitely be coming back here. Maybe next time I’ll bring a stick so I can knock down all of the spider webs with something other than my face.

I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
