Y'all, I am sore. Earlier today, I ventured out on a 6 mile solo hike. It was quite an experience to tromp around the desert hills by myself hoping coyotes wouldn't jump out and that I wouldn't lose my way on the nearly unmarked trail. But I made it! And it was stunning!
I drove to the trail head at Sara Park south of Lake Havasu, read the warnings for rattlesnakes (fantastic) and headed on my way.
Not only was this hike exactly what I needed to fill my day but I'm trying to get back in the habit of exercising everyday and this was so much more fun than going for a jog! I was so sedentary in Portland with my office job that I'm really trying to make a commitment to work out ever day. Bonus: my pants might actually fit again. Anyone have any exercise motivation?
