Hiking At Hitchcock
We have always wanted to hike Hitchcock Woods, and was happy when the Carolina Outdoors Society announced that they were scheduling a hike there! They are the awesome group I wrote about in my previous post. The members are very down-to-earth, friendly, and supportive. We learn so much from them. The boys and I look forward to their upcoming backpacking seminar and hike!
The hike at Hitchcock was fun and challenging. There were a lot of sandy areas and some uphill. I felt muscles that I didn't know existed. The next day, I was walking a little like Fred Sanford calling out for Elizabeth......but ya' know what......in thinking about the joy that we had on this hike, I can deal with being a little sore. The Augusta Hiking Group will be walking the same trail later this month. Guess who will be joining them?
I think that perhaps this time, I would like to plant a letterbox. Will contact the Hitchcock Foundation to get permission. If they approve, I will get to work making a carving and a handmade journal for the letterbox!
