2017 Hiking: A Year in Review

I saw a lot of “best nine” on Instagram at the end of December, people reflecting on memorable moments of 2017. I’ve been thinking a lot about this, of how to parse out what was real and what was not, and what was actually good and memorable, and how to process that and begin to heal. Hiking was a big part of 2017, as the first day of the year was spent on a warm, sunny hike at Rocky River. I want to be able to look back at all of the beautiful places I got to go to and hike at and be able to remember them for what they were, amazing hiking experiences in the outdoors. I believe there is a lot of peace to be found in the outdoors, and on hiking trails. Nothing heals quite like time spent in nature. So, here is my 2017 hiking year in review. Enjoy!
