Texas trails

May 31, 2010

Adventures, Kenny, Sara, Titus

So for Christmas, I got a book I’d been hoping for. 60 Hikes within 60 Miles of San Antonio and Austin. For a sneak peak, you can read the first 30 or so pages here. If you live around here and love it, you can grab your own copy here.

I really like to hike. I like it a lot. Being that I grew up in the flat swampy region of South Georgia, I didn’t really get a lot of opportunities to really hike. When I was 18, I trained for and climbed to the top of Pikes Peak and I was hooked. Unfortunately, I still live in the flat lands. The good thing though about where I live in Texas is that there are some hills to explore, some beautiful outlooks and great water features. It’s better than nothing, right?

So, I got this book and I’m excited to knock some of these hikes off the list (becasue that’s the way I am). Already, Sara and I (and Titus too) have done two hikes and we’re looking forward to getting more under our belt. Now that it’s summer, we’ll either have to do early morning hikes or pick back up on the hiking in the Fall when the weather is more agreeable. That’s okay though, we still have a couple dozen swimming holes to hit, BBQ joints to taste and burgers to try (did I not tell you about my burger list)?

Maybe one day I’ll live next to a mountain. Until then, these Texas trails will have to do.

    I was just telling a group of people about your “burger list” today, at a Memorial Day cookout. We all agreed it’s a great idea. 🙂
