Some years ago I began to appreciate hiking, even though I have had no training and haven’t even read anything about it. Just putting one foot in front of the other seems to work — and it is a lot of fun and good exercise. Combining hiking with geocaching (a geocaching FAQ can be read here and some geocaching tips from what I have learned can be read here) is a special treat and that is what most of the posts in the blog hiking category are about. There are many beautiful places to hike and in the hiking log is a list of some of them I have been fortunate enough to experience. The details for many of the entries from the earlier years are sketchy, but I now do my best to capture the more interesting information and links in the blog instead of the hiking log.
