I’m just not one of those people who stands up on a table on New Year’s Eve and loudly makes big resolutions for the coming year.
However, I am a believer in publishing my goals for the year and posting them in public…so that my friends can hold my feet to the fire when I haven’t posted about another hike in a while.
I would also like to acknowledge Sue’s Trail Hiker blog for writing entertaining posts about hiking in California and for giving me the idea to keep track of my training hikes. If you know me well at all, I will some times choose a big bowl of rocky road ice cream over a 4 mile hike on a “cold and stormy night.” Ha!
For 2015, I will hike at least 20 times for a total of 120 miles and complete at least 20 “training” hikes around my neighborhood at the base of the Sierra Azul Mountains here in Northern California. I will also venture further out into the East Bay and up the San Francisco Peninsula to discover more trails, take more pictures, and write more about my adventures. Finally, I would also like to hike in any OSP of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District that I have not yet visited and explore more trails in the Santa Clara County Open Space Authority lands!
I agree with Mr. Muir, for going out, I have found, I am really going in.
Where are you hiking this weekend?
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill
