Hiking at Pikes Peak





Hiking at Pikes Peak State Park, Iowa 

I can still feel the burn ...that back of your leg muscle ...whatever that one is... gets me every time coming up up and down steep steps. OUCH!! But it was fun being outdoors getting exercise. Great views. Not to hot yet, but I bet it gets hot in the summer??! Those pathways were interesting to see ...they were moving and grooving. I guess that is normal, but sure feel weird under your feet ...you think are these things going to hold up? With all the recent rain and such ...will I keep my balance, slipping abilities or what?? Never had an issue with heights as a kid, but I feel it a bit as an adult. I won't let it keep me from stuff, but I can sense it ...you deal, next!! lol!! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth

Hello,

I was thinking Pikes Peak was in Colorado, I did not know about this place. Looks like a great hike! Enjoy your day and new week!

I could not do all those steps now, but so remember when I could. Heights did not bother me till I got in my 40's I would say. Before that I did stuff that I can not even watch people do now.

I am sorry to be late answering your question about the blooms in my header...they are Honey Locust.

You seem to travel a lot...You should look up (google and then hit images) Garden of the Gods in southern Illinois. I did not hear of this area till later in my life, and we never made it there and I so wish we had.

Lovely place to walk. As a much younger person, I was proud of my lack of fear of heights and any other unstable walks. Now, not so much! I want stable footing to walk on.

I feel my calf muscles burning like that when I hike South Mtn State Park in NC.

Boy I hear ya, whenever you use those muscles you didn't know you had until you have to use them can be a real bugger. What a beautiful hike though, good for you for getting out and enjoying nature!

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the campsites ...u get this beachfront view, so peaceful. I really enjoy beach walking, it is like you can hear yourself thinking, u can shake out all the silliness and just be YOU! Hey, God it's me Beth (he's showing off you know, I think he does that 'cause he know I have my camera, was that not nice of him? so cool!!) ...I'm 40 any time you wanna slap, ((I know you don't believe in violence, but sometimes it is needed when we are completely not listening or just missing the point??!)) me across the face and tell me what the heck to do, I am ready??! I am able and willing? You are probably super busy, dealing with other silliness going on. I am probably doing okay ... compared to others. I get it ... I'll keep my ears open. Promise! Tell all my loved ones hi, I miss them. Lately, I have been really miss my Grandma, and my Great Aunt. Hope they are treating u good??! Life is good. Bring Spri…
