Over the summer, our hikes were tough to manage. Without gymnastics blocking out the time, we either had to hike as a family, or hike when Evie was otherwise occupied, which wasn’t often. Given the heat and the bugs, we didn’t get out nearly as often as we had hoped.
But Fall is here, and with it comes cooler temperatures, fewer bugs, and a renewed presence in gymnastics for our little bundle of energy.
So we’re getting back out there. Over the last few weeks, when we’ve been able to, we’ve made it onto trails. We visited Heins Farm again (just about a year after the last time) as well as the South Spencer Rail Trail (which I last visited in December). We didn’t snap a lot of pictures, and I don’t really have much to describe in terms of a blow-by-blow, but it was good to get back on the trail.
