Back on the trail again!!!

GREAT WEEK!!!! I spent the past week hiking up in North Carolina. I also got some much needed shopping in on my trip. I stopped by D.D. Bullwinkel’s in Brevard (an MK retailer) and picked up an MK Rodeo short sleeve button up and a Cutt Slam t-shirt.

Now to the fun part….  I put in a total of 12 miles of hiking. I had recently had a foot injury that kept me from hiking. Though sore, I pressed on and it felt great to finally be back on the trail. I honestly feel that I have taken for granted the time I get to spend doing what I love. This has been a huge wake-up call for me! I am so glad I was able to get back out there and enjoy the trails.

In the photo above, I was up at the top of Chimney Rock in North Carolina. It was a perfect day for the elevator to be out. So not only did I take their toughest trail to the base but I had to make it to the top by foot which provided some spectacular views. While I was there, I did some refreshment on my rock climbing and rappelling skills with Fox Mountain Guides. I always tell everyone to take advantage of practice and to learn what you can from who you can so you can always have a fun and safe adventure.  I have so many trail adventures planned for the rest of the summer. This particular one set the standard for me. It was a great workout due to the steep and fast elevation.  See you on the trails!!
