Family Time: Hiking Along The Glendo Lake

Just to be away from all the heartbreaking news of the Yolanda aftermath in the Philippines including my town, my husband decided we go on a hike not far from where we live. We are fortunate that we now live in an area where there are places to go for a hike or to explore and it was at the Glendo Lake. Hiking sure does a good thing not only for you and your kids' health, but it does good for your mind as well. Even though it was a bit of a chilly hike, that didn't stop us from exploring. We were going to go for another hike this afternoon, but the weather with 50mph winds did not allow us. Maybe tomorrow the weather will be nicer than today and we will go for another hike.

He enjoys snapping photos so he finally got his own camera. Well, he is using our old camera.

There were some gnarly looking trees on the trail, but they were all beautiful in its own way.

There were lots of pinecones on the ground and cactus as well. Or should I say Cacti?

  10. Adin, I am very sorry of what happened to your family, but glad to hear that your family are all alive... hiking and just wandering around the nature is one thing we can clear our mind or relaxed, i feel your pain, although i don't have relatives that are affected, but seeing what our fellow pinoy is going through esp the kids, bleeds my heart...God is good.

  11. Bonding with the nature after a stressful thoughts back home is uplifting isn't it?

  12. I wish we have hiking trails here in FL. It is all flat in here.

    1. That is one of the reasons why we moved to Wyoming from Kansas. But hey, you can still go on a hike even on flat lands... I am sure there are some trails around your area. ;)
