New year new hiking thread!
Continuing the discussion from
2020 Hiking Club (Walking Sober):
Well the plans for walking in 2020 went out the window with Covid. Partly due to the restrictions and partly just lost the mojo to get out as much as I intended.
This year, no goals or distances to achieve, no rigid routines or training plans. Just looking forward to getting out when I can.
Kicked off 2020 with a lovely leisurely stroll along the river with a friend. I guess we covered 8 or 9 miles. Can’t beat a good stomp with …
Went out walking for an hour or today which is the longest I’ve gone in a while. It was wet and muddy and I was with my Mum so we didn’t actually go that far, a couple of miles. But good to get up the hill again.
My next door neighbours are ill so I took their dog (Maggie’s mum) with us and they had a great time running around. Dog pics too big to upload apparently.
Having the woods right on the doorstep is something I will really miss if and when we move. But I’m sure there will be lots more good walks to discover!
Looking forward to seeing all your adventures
I definitely want to do more hiking again this year. Right now it’s 1 degree F, so today is probably not the day!
I would love to explore that area in the picture. It’s one of my favorite types of aesthetic.
I’m out with the dog twice a day and try to make one of those a long 1-2 hour walk when I can, this was from yesterday in the north west of the U.K.
Wow that’s an amazing photo! Where abouts? I’m in Cheshire.
@EarnIt I live near a long distance walking route called the Sandstone Trail. It’s so nice! I actually walked it (35 miles) in 2018. Would love to be that fit again.
This was taken on part of the Waskerley Way in County Durham! It’s a beautiful route (albeit treacherous in the winter in some parts!)
Walked in the Kennemer Duinen 2 days ago. It’s near the sea and a nature protected area.
Not heard of that one, but not been to Durham so that’s probably why
looks like a nice route though
A walk down memory lane today, Vondelpark and Oud-West.
Same walk, different camera. Fooling around with my cheap ass Nikon camera and Sigma macro lens.
A little hike in the morning.
Glad I did another walk yesterday. Amsterdam harbour has it’s own particular charm I think. It sure is quiet, except for some industrial noise.
Took Maggie over to the marshes this morning, first time she’s been and she had a great time bombing about. A few miles, flat but muddy.
Didn’t take pictures of the nicest part of the walk
with the blue sky and sun sparkling off the water… But still got this! Another part of my local landscape I will miss if/ when the move goes ahead.
Really love days like this. Cool, crisp air with blue sky and sunshine. Perfect January weather.
A few shots from my 18 km (11 miles) hike in Normandy, France today
Another dog walk through the woods. While I feel like I could physically walk for longer than an hour at the time, it catches up with me in the following days. So have been doing shorter walks some days but getting a few hour-long ones in too. Perfect walking weather again today, and less muddy as it’s been dry for a few days!
Sponsor took me on a snowshoeing adventure, new for me!.. Just over an hour long hike at Cypress Mtn , North Vancouver. Yogurt fuelled the exercise.
A nice 3 hour hike through the desert
Pen y Ghent in North Yorkshire
10 000 steps around the neighborhood. Cleared my mind a little
No pics but just been out for an hour and a half in the woods. Lots of stop and chats with other dog walkers and a few people I know. Including couple of people who’ve actually stopped drinking and are appreciating getting out walking more!
Really nice to just be outside. And also to tire Maggie out so the next hour or two inside will be pretty chill
