Rugged Mountain Hike




Surprise! I went hiking today on one of my favorite mountains . . .


. . .  with some of my favorite people. :) 


Ok- so considering that I'm terrified of heights I have no business climbing a mountain with 100 foot drop-offs, but I do love exhilaration. :p


Haha! my face . . . probably what I looked like most of the time!


The trail was wet, muddy and very slippery. 


Even though our thighs were cheering us on (i.e.: burning) we deciding to rest for a bit. 


Shimming under a huge rock. See the ladder to the left? There were tons of them!


Getting ready to go down another one. Isn't the view simply breath-taking?!


Don't look down!!! But, isn't it absolutely gorgeous! 

I feel so blessed. 

My God made these mountains and I get to climb all over them and praise His name for health and strength to do it. =)


So exhilarating!


Some serious drop-offs here. 


We made it! So fun, so hard and so worth it. =)

Soreness reports to come. lol!

Do you enjoy a good hike every once in a while? 

Which do you prefer- an good outdoor workout in the beauty of nature or going to the gym?

this hike looks a little scary but absolutely beautiful!! I haven't had the chance to hike this year but last year we went on a few in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it's such a fun way to get in some exercise! Def report back with soreness factors, I bet you had a great workout!!

That hike looks terrifying! It's beautiful scenery though.
