Middle of the Christianson Trail
Well, we did it. Jared has officially hiked the entire Christianson Trail. We jumped out of bed at 5 a.m. yesterday morning to hit the trail. Jared is working on accomplishing miles for Boy Scouts. We set out for another 10 miles. This time with Kirk. With it warming up the past few weeks we decided to set out early. Once again it was beautiful and great to just get out and be walking at a fast pace not worrying about who you might be leaving behind. Jared was in the lead of course. As usual. I HAD to go before Kirk. He had his walking sticks and it was driving me nuts. I kept feeling like I was behind Doc Oc from Spider Man when I followed him. He is such a good sport to all of my crazy irritants. I could write a book about them. That is another story. Anyway, I didn't get tired until the 8th mile again. It was great to be out...the three of us. There is just something about being away from the city hiking over dirt and rocks. The quail were hilarious the way they were calling to each other. There were so many and they were so loud. We made it home by 10:15 to work and do some school. Not bad for a morning jaunt.
