Before we were married, we were quite the hikers in Colorado where we had summer jobs working at a camp in the Rockies. Our biggest hike was to Long's Peak (elevation 14,269 ft.) - a 16 mile round trip through a most challenging boulder field, keyhole, ledges, narrows and finally the summit.
This is not a picture of us, but a good visual of the experience. It was amazing and we felt like we nailed it!
So, you now know we like to hike. However, we have toned it down----waaaay down.
Some of our hikes near Branson would be considered child's play, but we loved being out in the woods and along the streams regardless of the elevation numbers and hike lengths. We'll leave the "impressive" to my brother, Duane, and his serious climbing prowess at an older age than we are!
Our first hike was right within the city limits of Branson.
Our third hike happened quite accidentally when we visited the Shepherd of the Hills fish hatchery and found out about the nearby White River Corridor Trail.
Truly, these hikes were memorable. And because we are of a certain age now, this sign didn't bother us one bit!
