My Essential Addiction

If you’re like me, then you get addicted to the things that you enjoy. One of the things that I am addicted to is hiking.

It has become my way of going out into the world to escape the daily grind, and so far, there has been no better way to escape!

I absolutely LOVE spending the time I have with my friends or even solo; but most of all, in Nature and even with God if you will.

I have to admit, regardless of all the other hikers that we come across, there is no better way to revamp and breathe after a long and draining week.

Most of my favorite hikes have been accomplished in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I say ‘accomplished’ because a little over a year ago, I was come back from a sports injury that put me out of the game for over 4 years.

Prior to this, I would have NEVER considered hiking, but one day, I kind of just…fell into it. I was invited by a close family friend and he even supplied the necessities for my first hike!

Since then, I have not looked back! It has been full steam ahead as I ford the many streams and creeks, swim the many pools and summit the fantastic peaks!

The views from these wonderful peaks and even the sides of the mountains on the way up have afforded me a whole new outlook and love of life!

Hiking is now my thing. It is what my friends and family know me for. If you don’t know where I am, you can guess it’s on a mountain.
