Outdoor Adventures: Hiking in Auburn
My blog’s tagline is “adventures in books and in nature,” and this year I wanted to add my non-bookish adventures to my corner of the internet! Welcome to my new semi-regular series called Outdoor Adventures, where I will highlight my hiking adventures as part of my accountability for my 2019 goals.
2019 was a rocky start for me as I got sick with the flu for nearly a week. Rude! This meant that I couldn’t get started on my health goals, but at least Mother Nature was like “I got you fam” and it rained a lot for several days. With the flu finally gone from my system, this weekend I decided to unplug from all socials and my blog and get outside.
⛰️ I headed out to Auburn for a casual hike. I didn’t charge my fitbit or even turn on my apps to track my mileage because for this particular adventure I just wanted to be fully present and not worry about pace, mileage, and elevation gain. It was beautiful and just what I needed. I seemed to be the only person on the trails.
I went there with the intention of doing a specific trail but I couldn’t find the trailhead so I wound up doing a different one. The wayfinding overall was quite good so I wasn’t concerned about getting lost but there are a lot of different trails that all overlap… it is possible I did a Frankenhike.
That’s all I have for you this time, but for future installments, I plan on bringing a book with me so I can read among the trees. And of course, I will show data for future adventures because is it a Kal thing if she doesn’t quantify it with data?
Let’s go on another adventure together!
